Have you ever been working on an important project and all of a sudden your mouse stops working? What now! Most people don't know that the keyboard can perform all the functions that a mouse does with just a few key strokes One of the more powerfull functions is to simulate a right mouse click on an item in an application or desktop window without using the mouse

Follow the steps below:

1 Select the item

2 Then hold down the Shift key while pressing F10

(Modern keyboards have a key with a picture of a menu on it that has the same effect as Shift F10.)

With just two keystrokes you have conquered the mighty right mouse click! Good luck on your keyboard skillz.
