Mouseless Right-Click

Friday, December 11th, 2009 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help

Over the years I have found that there are many people who would like to use the right-click menus my tips are always referring to but just hate the mouse.

These right-clicks are great for everyone who’s comfortable with the mouse. And many people aren’t even remotely interested in trying to remember all the key combinations necessary to replace all the stuff the right-click can do.

But what about the rest of you? The ones who love to use the keyboard as much as possible, but still want to complete the same tasks the tips are covering.

Is there a mouseless solution for you?

Yep! Just as the title suggested, there is.

Take a look at your keyboard to the right of the space bar and just past the Alt and Windows keys.

See it?


Press this menu key and you’ve replaced the right-click.

From there, you can use the arrow keys to navigate through the pop up menus and the Enter key to select your choices.

Just in case, if you’ve hit this key accidentally or just need to get out of the pop up menu, hit the Esc key.

Here’s a quick note: When I checked my laptop keyboard, I found this key in the top section of the keyboard. You may have to do some searching to find it.

Viola! Mouseless right clicks at your service!
