Default removing the "Edit" menu + individual worker menus

On the Windows version of Prime95, the only way to copy the output of a worker window is to click the window and select the Edit > Copy Window option. This seems very clumsy in my opinion. Therefore, my suggestion is to remove the "Edit" menu completely. Instead, each worker window should have a context menu that can be accessed by right-clicking. The options are:

Copy window: does exactly what it says on the tin.

Start/Stop: allows the user to start or stop a worker window by right-clicking it.

Status: shows the assignments and expected completion dates for the individual worker window.

This should make worker window interaction a lot more streamlined.

Please, specify, what would this drop-down menu include in different Merge modes (including the undoc +32 modifier).

Sorry for necroposting, but here is a screenshot of what the new version should look like:
