Default Keyboard shortcuts

When I am editing a table, I'd like to be able to use keyboard shortcuts to
bring up the context menu and then select Insert/Insert rows after. I can't
find anything in the extensive Help article about keyboard shortcuts
describing how to bring up the context menu, i.e. simulate a right-click,
with keyboard shortcuts.

Can anyone help me out?

Simply assign a keyboard shortcut to TableInsertRowBelow - Alt+R should be
unassigned.

Default Keyboard shortcuts

If your keyboard is a "Windows keyboard," it will have a key between the
right Windows key and the right Ctrl key that bring up the context menu (it
will have an icon that looks like a menu). With a row selected, the context
menu will include Insert Rows, with I as the accelerator key. Unfortunately,
there is no keyboard shortcut to select a row, so you may prefer to use
Graham's suggestion of assigning a shortcut to TableInsertRowBelow.
