Are these menus doubled up just for redundant convenience, or is there some difference here I am not seeing?

They are duplicated for convenience. They probably don't add much convenience when accessed from the right-click menu, but in other contexts (such as the "Add Surface Layer" button) they might.

By the way, I see that your sub-menus are opening right to left, which is unusual. I have used a couple of computers where this happened, and I'm not 100% sure why but I think it may be related to Wacom drivers. Do you have a Wacom installed, or do you know of any other reason why they are opening this way?

Oh, yes i do have Wacom drivers installed for my intuos 4.  I am using a Nvidia GTX 980 for my video card, and have dual 24" monitors running under Windows 10 Pro.  If you need help diagnosing this menu behavior, I can do any tests you need me to try.

Thanks. Do you also have it in left-handed orientation, like I did?

Yes, mine was set to Left-Handed now which makes the menus pop out to the right.  Before it was set to Right-Handed.

Here is the solution:  https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-desktop/context-menu-going-left-not-right/a09e42df-fdd0-45fc-a501-7e5e145a22b3?auth=1

I tried it and now my menus open to the right.  :)
