Note: In Maple 2018, context-sensitive menus were incorporated into the new Maple Context Panel, located on the right side of the Maple window. If you are using Maple 2018, instead of right-clicking to bring up a menu, as shown in many of these videos, you will find the operations you need in the Context Panel.
