Copy/Paste

Copy/pastes selected data-blocks.

Delete

Deletes the selected data-block.

Select, Select Hierarchy, Deselect

New

Creates a new collection.

Duplicate Collections

Recursively duplicates the collection including all child collections, objects, and object data.

Duplicate Linked

Creates a new collection instance.

Visibility

Controls the collection’s visibility in the 3D Viewport and the final render.

Isolate

Hides all collections except the selected collection and any parent collections (if any exist).
