How Do I Right Click On A Mac?


I just switched from Windows to a MacBook but I miss my right click! Is there a way to do that in Mac OS X?

It's easy to emulate the Windows right-click on your Mac laptop or with the Magic Trackpad.

First, open up your System Preferences by clicking on the Apple icon at the top left of your screen. Then click on the Trackpad icon.

Under the "One Finger" section, click the "Secondary Click" checkbox. That's it!
