How to automate a command on a right-click menu [SOLVED]

The screenshot is part of explorer UI running Qttabbar plugin.

I'd like to automate the command "Merge tabs of other windows", but have no idea how to do it in autoit.

The command is only accessible by right clicking the area under the address bar then selecting from the pop-up menu. No shortcut key is provided by the plugin.

I was thinking about using ControlClick, but had no idea how to get a handle to the pop-up menu.

Would someone please give a hint about how to achieve this? Thanks.

What information can the autoit window info tool give about the menu control?

Thanks for the tip.

I was able to locate the control under the address bar.

Relevant code:

ControlClick("[ACTIVE]", "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.window.8.app.0.378734a; INSTANCE:2]", "right", 1, 1, 25)
Sleep(100)
ControlSend("[ACTIVE]", "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.window.8.app.0.378734a; INSTANCE:2]", "m")
