Right click without using your mouse

Let's say you want to use your keyboard more and not have to switch back to your mouse just to get the shortcut menu for the field you are already in, or even find that right click on your mouse is on the fritz! No worries, Windows has a keyboard combination that will let you right click.

There are actually two ways to do this with just the keyboard.

The first is holding down your shift key and pressing F10 at the same time.

The other is dependant on your keyboard, as some have the button, and some don't. There is often a key on your keyboard located near the Alt, Windows, and Ctrl key that looks like a rectangle with some lines in it. This is sometimes called the shortcut menu key, popup menu key, or something similair. All you have to do is press this key and you will get your shortcut menu. If you don't have this key, then your only option is the shift+F10 combo.
