Thank you for the suggestion, Uwe!
I am marking it as a duplicate of bug 126404 as it is already covered there for the most part. If a context menu is implemented, then follow-up reports can be opened for potential additions to it. It seems the first obvious option to be included would be "show in folder" or equivalent, like you suggested.

Hm actually, I'll mark as a duplicate of bug 155701, because bug 126404 is only about "open in folder" and the suggested solution is an overlay icon instead of a context menu.
