The latest XD update for Windows added a proper top-level menu that was missing in previous versions (to make it more like every other PC program Adobe and other companies make). It seems that they also removed some items from a right-click to simplify that menu (and make it the same across Mac and PC). Look for View > Show Layout Grid at the top of the application window.

I just want to say I hate this, as I typically turn on and off the layout grid constantly to align content to certain grid columns. My hand is usually on the mouse, so using the top navigation means removing my focus on the artboard, and removing my hand from the mouse to use the shortcut key is just as annoying.

Folks seriously, are you even checking with users before removing these functions, that was really handy now I have to come out of what I'm doing and go up to the menu for something that was previously there on right-click. Annoying does not cover it.

If you turn the grid on and off a lot, you should learn the keystroke for it. I know it's not the same as the Right–click, but I think it's faster. Mac users never had it in the Right–click so this makes both platforms the same. How much is put in the Right–click menu is tricky because if there's too much it takes too long to find what you're looking for.

 

But I know it's hard to adjust to change when you're used to something (and like it that way). If you'd like to see it some back, please make a feature request here Adobe XD Feedback : Feature Requests & Bugs
