    Is there a keyboard shortcut for right-click?
    Is there a keyboard shortcut that I can press to keep from having to reach for the mouse or trackpad to right-click on something? This really disturbs my flow while I am working and I would love to know about any key combination that might be out there. Thanks!

    I have read that enabling 'mouse keys' will enable 'ctrl + 5' to open the context menu.

    I only have notebooks here and this option is not available on my Macs. You need to have a keyboard with a number pad.

    Open up System Preferences and do a search for 'mouse keys' to turn it on.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
