Faking a right click Nutter msg:1571064 7:03 pm on May 18, 2006 (gmt 0) I got a hand-me-down notebook a couple of months ago that's got a few, let's say, issues. The biggest one is that the right mouse button doesn't work. Is there a keystroke that will fake a right-click when I'm really left-clicking?

Widows has an accessibility feature called MouseKeys [ microsoft.com]. If you activate this then the minus sign on numeric keypad will act as a right-click.
Alternately you can use
SHIFT + F10 which opens a shortcut menu for the selected item (this is the same as right-clicking an object - from Keyboard shortcuts for Windows [ support.microsoft.com]
