Properties displays the Properties dialog for the selected item in the Track View. For example, this option displays the Key Info dialog for selected keys, or the Sound Options dialog if you select an item in the Sound Track.

Some controllers, such as Noise, use the Properties dialog as their primary interface for animating parameters. Other controllers do not use the Properties dialog at all, and in those cases it is unavailable.
