Q. I love my new Mac. But I do miss the contextual menu like I had in Windows. Is there a way to right-click on a Mac?
A. On a Mac this is called a secondary click. The secondary click can be enabled a few different ways. The simplest method is to hold down the Control key while you click. On new MacBooks and MacBook Pros, you can also click down with two fingers instead of one. If you use an Apple mouse, you can also enable secondary click. To do this, click on the Apple logo and then select System Preferences. Now click on Mouse. You should see an option for turning on secondary click.
