Embed Navigator items in Right Mouse Button menu

Embed Navigator items in Right Mouse Button menu

Embed or add the items found in the Navigator to a right mouse button menu.  This would eliminate some unnecessary steps and clicks and picks.  See included screenshot for explanation.

Use Case:

When managing multiple contexts (Product, Library, or Projects) it quickly becomes cumbersome to have to open and move to the Navigator Browse tab, expand the context of interest and pick an item.  It would be much faster if those items were available in a right mouse button menu.  This same process could be used for other purposes as well, and simply expands on the use of the right mouse button menu found throughout Windchill.

N‌ote I voted for this idea. I like it, as it's definitely an improvement over the current UX - but I would like to propose a slight variation on the UX of the implementation.

A related idea (expanding on or alternative to) this idea:

Add the same right-click menu content to the Projects > 'Project name' > 'Location' "bread crumb" menu in the top of the page. This is very similar to the drop down menus with the small down arrow in the Windows Explorer location bar which  allow you to go to sibling folders.

The use case favored is slightly different: It favors navigation to another location inside of the current context, over management across multiple. Getting to another context is still easy by clicking Projects > (or Products, Libraries) in the bread crumb bar.

Question to other voters on this idea:

Which of these two variations on the feature would you like PTC to implement first? Why?
