Rigth click button

Could someone tell me, in detail, just what the right click button is for? Thanks in advance.

Depends on the situation but it generally lists other options available to you at the time - in the case of this forum, I right click every time I open a thread from the list of new posts by right clicking and choosing the option to open in a new window

It brings up drop-down menu's specific to whatever you're right-clicking on.

Well....Jack...theres no real way to explain in detail. Some programs/sites have no functionality...others have many options. There are also mice (mouses?) programs that allow you to program many functions as well.

For instance...if I rt click on a blank spot on this page...I get browser options. If I do it on a graphic or picture..I get different options. If I do it on my desktop..different options again.

And left handed people can choose to have the context menu on the left button instead of the right and a Mac mouse has only one button and a Unix mouse can have 3 buttons. Context menu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I use a wireless mouse with a roller switch to scroll with, and have the tilt of the roller set to "back" and "forward". Man, makes things zoom faster between pages.
