Hey Karthik, you can perform right click on an element and open it in new window by using Actions class and getWindowHandle methods in Selenium Webdriver. Following code sample automate the same task:

import java.util.Iterator;
import java.util.Set;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
import org.junit.Test;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.Keys;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Actions;

public class RightClick {

    @Test
    public void method1() {

        WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();
        driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(30, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
        driver.get("https://www.edureka.co");
        System.out.println(driver.getTitle());
        Actions action = new Actions(driver);
        WebElement element = driver.findElement(By.partialLinkText("Corporate Training"));

 action.contextClick(element).sendKeys(Keys.ARROW_DOWN).sendKeys(Keys.ARROW_DOWN).sendKeys(Keys.ENTER).build().perform();

        Set<String> winid = driver.getWindowHandles();
        Iterator<String> iter = winid.iterator();
        iter.next();

        String tab = iter.next();
        driver.switchTo().window(tab);
        System.out.println(driver.getTitle());

        driver.quit();
    }
}

How to do this without using Actions class,  i am running test in safari it doesn't support Actions. can we have alternative way to implement this in Java script?
Hi,

I used the above code, but instead of opening on new window, it just opens on the current window

Here is the piece of code in the URL: "https://www.ndtv.com/business"

// Right-click on LATEST and open the same in a New-window and print title of  

 Actions action = new Actions(driver);

 WebElement element = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//a[text()='Latest']"));

  action.contextClick(element).sendKeys(Keys.ARROW_DOWN).sendKeys(Keys.ARROW_DOWN).sendKeys(Keys.ENTER).build().perform();
