On the Mac the mouse or trackpad doesn’t come with a distinct right-mouse button. But that doesn’t mean you can’t right-click on the Mac.

Apple uses the term ‘secondary click’ to refer to what is commonly known as the ‘right click’. Here’s how to enable and use the right/secondary-click on your Mac in four steps:

When you use a trackpad:

1 Open System Preferences

2 Click on the Trackpad icon.

3 Make sure the Point and Click tab is selected and check the Secondary click option.

4 You can select how you want to trigger the ‘right click’. We find the ‘tap with two fingers’ option works most intuitively.

The animation on the right side of the panel shows you how to ‘right click’.
