It is known that Steve Jobs hated buttons, which is why they are used rather poorly in all Apple products. If you have just started using a Macbook, you may have a question - how to right-click when there is no button? There are several ways to right-click on a Macbook. Read this guide and get to know them.
Method 1 of 3: Clicking with Control
Step 1. Move the cursor to the place where you want to click
Hold the key control or ctrl on keyboard. It is located next to the key option in the bottom row of keys.
Step 2. Click on the object
If you click while holding the key control a menu will open, as if you clicked with the right mouse button.
Method 2 of 3: Enable two-finger click
Step 1. Click the Apple menu
Select System Preferences and then open Keyboard & Mouse.
Step 2. Click on the Trackpad tab
In the Trackpad Gestures section, check the box next to Tap trackpad using two fingers for secondary click. This will activate the right-click menu when you press the trackpad with two fingers.
Note: The designation may differ depending on the version of macOs. In previous versions, the feature was called Secondary Click and was located in the Two Fingers section
Step 3. Move the cursor to the place where you want to click
Press on the trackpad with two fingers to play a right-click on an object. If the corresponding option is enabled, your action will bring up the corresponding menu on the screen.
Method 3 of 3: Using an external mouse
Step 1. Decide if you need an external mouse
Working with such a mouse is preferred by people working with tables, and many others.
Step 2. Purchase a mouse with two buttons
Most likely, it will be a mouse for a Windows computer. Using a Windows mouse with a MacBook may seem "non-kosher" to you, but it's convenient. You can also purchase a mouse from Apple - Magiс Mouse.
You can set up an imitation of a right click on a Magic Mouse in the system settings, under "Mouse"> "Select and click". When this function is activated, Magic Mouse can be used like any other mouse
Step 3. Connect the mouse
Connect your mouse to your Macbook's USB port or via Bluetooth and you're good to go.
