Whether you’re a well-seasoned user or someone new to computers, there could be a slight learning curve if you’re new to Chromebooks. For example, you might not know how to right-click on the Chromebook, and that’s fine. In this article, let’s look at the same.
There are three ways to right-click on the Chromebook. But apart from that, we’re also going to look at how to middle-click.
How to right-click on a Chromebook
The first way is to use both your index and middle finger to tap on the trackpad. You can test this by going to a webpage. If you’re reading this via a Chromebook, try tapping both of your fingers at once on the trackpad, and you’ll see a menu open up.
If you’re using a Chromebook tablet and don’t have a keyboard to attach, there’s an easy way to right-click on the Chromebook, and that is by either tapping with two fingers on the screen or pressing and holding a finger on the screen for a couple of seconds.
The second way is to click the right-click button on the trackpad. You can also use the combination Alt+tap on the trackpad to right-click on a Chromebook. If your trackpad doesn’t work or is damaged, you can always plug in an external mouse.
Similarly, you can middle-click and glide your fingers upwards or sideways for navigation gestures. If you want to learn more about navigating your Chromebook, here’s a list.
