Import and Add to NgModule

import { ContextMenuModule } from '@ctrl/ngx-rightclick';

Add context menu directive to element and pass the menu component to be shown. Important the menu component must also be added as to entryComponents in your NgModule. See here

// show.component.ts
  template: `
    <div [contextMenuTrigger]="menu" (menuAction)="handleMenuAction($event)">Right Click</div>
export class ShowComponent {
  // menu component imported and assigned locally
  menu = SimpleMenuComponent;
// my-menu.component.ts
import { Component } from '@angular/core';

import { MenuComponent, ContextMenuService, MenuPackage } from '@ctrl/ngx-rightclick';

  selector: 'simple-menu',
  // add your menu html
  template: `<a (click)="handleClick()">Download</a>`,
export class SimpleMenuComponent extends MenuComponent {
  // this module does not have animations, set lazy false
  lazy = false;

  constructor(public menuPackage: MenuPackage, public contextMenuService: ContextMenuService) {
    super(menuPackage, contextMenuService);
    // grab any required menu context passed via menuContext input

  handleClick() {
    // IMPORTANT! tell the menu to close, anything passed in here is given to (menuAction)

Last step add css somewhere in your global styles

.cdk-overlay-container {
  position: fixed;
  z-index: 1000;
  pointer-events: none;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
.ngx-contextmenu.cdk-overlay-pane {
  position: absolute;
  pointer-events: auto;
  box-sizing: border-box;

// not required but can help with mobile right click
.target {
  user-select: none;

holdToDisplay number default: 1000 ms pressing down on mobile to show menu
