Bug Description

I cannot right-click on any pinned package, whether installed or not. Ideally,
the right click menu should have an "Unpin" on it.

Thanks for your bugreport.

The package can be unpinned with the "Packages/Lock Version" menu. I agree that
there should be a "unpin" option too.

I can confirm as well. I'm not sure why is this wishlist. True, whilst most of the items on the normal right-click menu are available in Package menu, so it's not much of an inconvenience, surely that doesn't mean that not being able to get the context menu of a pinned package is expected behavior..?
