The Secret To Right-Clicking On Your Touchscreen

Dear Computer Lady,

On my computer, I used to be able to right-click on things and get a menu that would help me perform certain tasks related to the thing I right-clicked on.

Now that I am using a touch screen on my laptop, I can tap instead of click, but how do I right-tap?

Thanks, Kris

Dear Kris,

I am glad to hear that you have learned to right-click on icons to get more options.

On your touchscreen, you can get the same list of shortcuts by holding your tap for a second or so. Then, when you lift your finger that same context menu will appear.
