Yes, as I found out a short while ago, both ctrl-leftclick and
ctrl-rightclick _inside_ the putty window opens up a putty menu.

Yes, it's there.  It's a fail on my part - I use the keyboard or I use

a long time that it didn't even occur to me to try holding down
ctrl/alt/shift keys while clicking inside the putty window
