Is there way to do get right click action on unity dash board icon launcher using keyboard shortcut ?. After doing Alt+F1, I could select the application only.

  • You cannot right-click on the dash icons using either the mouse or the keyboard..Maybe you are referring to the icons on the launcher...

To use the keyboard to access the quicklists for the icons present on the unity launcher is simple.

Press Alt+F1 to put keyboard focus onto the Launcher and select the application icon using up and down arrow keys. To access the application's quicklists press the Right Arrow key.
