Please add "exit" item to right click / bar menu !

Hello !
My prayers have been heard and you added the option to get the "title bar" menu also when pressing the right mouse button ( yeah, reason i finally bought the license ).

As this follows the idea to save us lazy guys from moving the mouse to the bottom bar to access the very same menu, please also add the EXIT item to that right mouse menu to save us from moving the horrible distance to the bottom left AND the extra press of the button there...

That'd be great !

Just press Esc. The popup menu is already too crowded and there are already three ways to quit the program: Esc as just mentionned, Menu->Exit and Alt+F4, no need for a 4th one. Moreover an exit program option has not its place in a right-click context menu.

It made sense to display the popup when right-clicking the image surface when the right-click zoom is disabled or when there is no image, as it helps with the discoverability of program features.

I'm sorry, but once you introduce a new mouse way for exiting, then from the current 3 methods only one would actually be used by users - the Esc way. It's one key, it's the fastest.
Currently you discriminate against mouse-preferring users, since a few steps and precision are required to exit the program using the mouse.
And I imagine I'm not the only one whose left hand isn't always near the keyboard (ok, take your minds out of the gutter).
I've been using FPV for 4 years now and it still bothers me.

Anyway, the best way for exiting would be either:
1. go to any screen corner and click
2. mouse3 or mouse4 (choose one in options)
