This little tool will allow you to control modifiers of selected object without accessing the command panel especially when it's active Expert Mode. Tooltip on the image below shows list of actions.

Additional Info: 

Basic usage and list of actions:

List of actions ( LABEL ):
When an object is selected its name will appear in the label.
[ LMB ] >>> Press "Left Mouse Button" on label and move to change form position.
[ MMB ] >>> Press "Middle Mouse Button" on label to select base object.
[ RMB ] >>> Press "Right Mouse Button" on label to open context menu with list of all assigned modifiers. Menu Checkboxes shows whether the modifiers are enabled.

List of actions ( CONTEXT MENU ):
[ LMB ] >>> Press LMB on the context menu item to select named modifier.
[ MMB ] >>> Pressing MMB on the context menu item will enable or disable named modifier.
[ RMB ] >>> Press RMB on the context menu item to remove named modifier from selected object.

Close this tool by pressing "Red" button or place over it to see the tooltip.

Update 1.1 >>> Added support for max2016

@Chriscandide
I have currently installed 2014,2017,2018 :( I will probably replace RC menu with something else. Don't know how work on 2014 and 2017 and you have problem in 2016. It's really weird.
Are you have all Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable installed?
You can download theses from this link

Hi vikirecon

I tested this tool in max 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018 both on Windows 8.1 and Win 10 and it works. Sorry, but I really do not know what could cause the problem with RC menu. Maybe design version of max but not sure.
