How to use right click function by Chromebook pc’s touch pad?


When a regular windows user switches to a Chromebook one problem he might find is, with right clicking function of its touch pad because no such feature is present there (as in my Chromebook too). So here is the solution for it.

Actually, right clicking in touch pad of Chromebook can be done in 2 ways.

First, is to tap gently with two fingers slightly apart, and the function that you expect from the right click will become evident. The biggest demerit of this process is sometimes the touch pad might not appreciate the pressure and you might require repeated similar strokes, and that probably holds true for other windows based laptops too.

The second way is a more stable path in my view. In this, one has to simply click (press to click) on the touch-pad with 2 fingers instead of tapping. It seems, clicks are better perceived than gentle taps and the right click function is easily obtained by clicking by pressing with 2 fingers. Unlike, regular mouses or touch pads you don´t need to think of left or right click feature, simply the no. of fingers you use will dictate your instruction to the Chromebook. When using a single finger,its like the left click and and 2 fingers will count for right click.
