How to Right Click on a Laptop

When you need to right-click on something on a desktop computer, all you need to do is press the right button on your mouse. Unfortunately, this can't be done on a laptop with only one track pad button. Most laptops with one button are Mac laptops, and thus you need to find your way around a little differently. The good news is that the procedure is not complicated.

Open the display screen on your laptop computer and turn on the unit. Wait for the flash (logo) screen to give way to the main menu.


Locate the "Control" key on your laptop. On some laptops it will be labeled as "Ctrl." Press and hold the "Control" key down.


Use the computer trackpad to navigate to the icon or file you would like to right-click on and click the trackpad button. The right-click window will appear just like you were using a mouse.
