Windows 7

Right Mouse Click with the Keyboard

SUMMARY: Simulate the right mouse-button click in Windows 7 with the keyboard.

Here's a quick tip. One way to get more out of Windows 7 is to master the use of the right-mouse button. For example, right-click a file in Explorer to view a menu where you can move it, delete it, remove it, create a Desktop shortcut, and other operations.

If you are uncomfortable using this button or would rather keep both hands on the keyboard, there are a couple of options. Most modern keyboards have a right-click menu key that you can use. Or, simply press Shift + F10 to open the right-click menu.
