  5. No Mouse? How to Right-Click on a Mac

Right-clicking in Windows is simple, but what if you have a Mac? Here’s how to Control-click.

On a Mac, there are several ways to right-click without using a mouse:

  1. Trackpad: If your Mac has a built-in trackpad, you can right-click by clicking the trackpad with two fingers.
  2. Keyboard: You can also right-click by holding down the “Control” key while clicking on the left mouse button.
  3. Keyboard shortcut: You can use the keyboard shortcut “Control + Click” to right-click on any item.
  4. Accessibility options: Go to System Preferences > Accessibility > Mouse & Trackpad > enable “Secondary click” this will allow you to right-click by clicking the trackpad with two fingers.
  5. Use the context menu: You can also access the right-click menu by pressing the “Control” key and then pressing the left mouse button.
  6. Use the context menu: You can also press the “Control” key and then press the left mouse button.
  7. Right-click with the Apple Pencil: If you have an iPad with an Apple Pencil, you can use the Pencil to right-click by double-tapping anywhere on the screen with the Pencil.

By using these methods, you can still have the same functionality of a mouse’s right-click feature on your Mac.
