Select chain of sketch entities / Select closed loop

I want to select the highlighted sketch lines pictured below so I can convert them to non-construction lines (with the hotkey Q). In SOLIDWORKs, you could right-click any line segment and choose "Select Chain", which would highlight all the attached sketch entities. I had to manually hunt and peck each line to get this selection; is there a faster way to select all sketch entities of a closed loop?

    The way in Onshape is a few more clicks than Solidworks, but still very handy.

    Onshape team, I'd love to see more work around this, for example perhaps icons instead of dropdowns (similar to s-menu), and auto-selecting "faces" or "edges" based on right clicking an entity
