How to right-click on Mac

You can perform the equivalent of a right click even without a right-click button.

On Mac computers, right click is known as secondary click or Control click. If your mouse, trackpad, or other input device doesn't include a right-click button or other way to perform a right click, just hold down the Control key on your keyboard while you click.

The following Apple input devices can right-click and perform other gestures without the Control key.

Right-click with an Apple trackpad

Using your Magic Trackpad or built-in Multi-Touch trackpad, click or tap with two fingers.
To set up secondary click and other trackpad features, choose Apple () menu > System Preferences, then click Trackpad.

Right-click with an Apple mouse

Using your Magic Mouse or Mighty Mouse, click the right side of the mouse.
To set up secondary click and other mouse features, choose Apple () menu > System Preferences, then click Mouse.
