.menu-item {
    display: block;
    position: relative;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    white-space: nowrap;
}
 
.menu-btn { 
    display: block;
    color: #444;
    font-family: 'Roboto', sans-serif;
    font-size: 13px;
    cursor: pointer;
    border: 1px solid transparent;
    white-space: nowrap;
    padding: 6px 8px;

button.menu-btn {

.menu-text {
    margin-left: 25px;
}
 
.menu-btn .fa {
    position: absolute;
    left: 8px;
    top: 50%;
    -webkit-transform: translateY(-50%);
    transform: translateY(-50%);
}
 
.menu-item:hover > .menu-btn { 
    color: #fff; 
    outline: none; 
    background-color: #2E3940;
    background: -webkit-linear-gradient(to bottom, #5D6D79, #2E3940);
    background: linear-gradient(to bottom, #5D6D79, #2E3940);
    border: 1px solid #2E3940;
}
 
.menu-item.disabled {
    opacity: .5;
    pointer-events: none;
}
 
.menu-item.disabled .menu-btn {
    cursor: default;
}
 
.menu-separator {
    display:block;
    margin: 7px 5px;
    height:1px;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #fff;
    background-color: #aaa;
}
 
.menu-item.submenu::after {
    content: "";
    position: absolute;
    right: 6px;
    top: 50%;
    -webkit-transform: translateY(-50%);
    transform: translateY(-50%);
    border: 5px solid transparent;
    border-left-color: #808080; 
}
 
.menu-item.submenu:hover::after {
    border-left-color: #fff;
}
 
.menu .menu {
    top: 4px;
    left: 99%;
}
 
.show-menu,
.menu-item:hover > .menu {
    opacity: 1;
    -webkit-transform: translate(0, 0) scale(1);
    transform: translate(0, 0) scale(1);
    pointer-events: auto;
}
 
.menu-item:hover > .menu {
    -webkit-transition-delay: 300ms;
    transition-delay: 300ms;
}

 

JS

Finally add javascript on page to make menu actionable and bind multiple events, as soon as user clicked mouse right button an animated context menu will open with number of actions.

var menu = document.querySelector('.menu');
 
function showMenu(x, y){
    menu.style.left = x + 'px';
    menu.style.top = y + 'px';
    menu.classList.add('show-menu');
}
 
function hideMenu(){
    menu.classList.remove('show-menu');
}
 
function onContextMenu(e){
    e.preventDefault();
    showMenu(e.pageX, e.pageY);
    document.addEventListener('mousedown', onMouseDown, false);
}
 
function onMouseDown(e){
    hideMenu();
    document.removeEventListener('mousedown', onMouseDown);
}
 
document.addEventListener('contextmenu', onContextMenu, false);
