How to "right-click" in Apple Mac

As most of you know there is just one mouse button in all Apple Macs, you might think that you are missing a lot of functionality comparing to Windows' mice but you're wrong :-) 

You can still use "right-click's" functionality in any Mac (Apple call it "Secondary Click").

It all depends on which Mac you use:

  • If you use the multitouch trackpad (e.g. MacBook Pro, MacBook Air) you can simply place two fingers on the trackpad and click.

  • The other easy way to do it, is to hold Ctrl on your keyboard and then click- it works on any Mac :-)

More settings you can find from the Apple () menu at the upper-left corner of the screen -> System Preferences... -> Trackpad
