The Mouse-less Right Click

The Mouse-less Right Click

There are many people who are new to the right click menus that my tips are always referring to.

These right clicks are great for everyone who’s comfortable with the mouse. And many people aren’t even remotely interested in trying to remember all the key combinations necessary to replace all the stuff the that right click can do.

But what about the rest of you? The ones who love to use the keyboard as much as possible, but still want to complete the same tasks the tips are covering.

Is there a mouse-less solution for you?

Yep. Just as the title suggested, there is.

Take a look at your keyboard, to the right of the space bar, just past the Alt and Windows keys…

See it?


Press this menu key and you’ve replaced the right-click.

From there you can use the arrow keys to navigate through the pop-up menu and the Enter key to select your choice.

Just in case: If you’ve hit this key accidentally or just plain need to get out of the pop-up menu, hit the Esc key.

Here’s a quick note—when I checked my laptop keyboard I found the key in the top section of the keyboard. You may have to do some searching to find it.

Viola! Mouse-less right clicks 🙂
