How to Right Click on a Touchscreen in Windows 10

information   Information
The right click is the action of pressing the right button on a mouse or touchpad. When you right click on an item in Windows, it will usually open a context menu, drop menu, or jump list for additional options for that item.

If you have a touchscreen, you may wonder how do you right click on a touchscreen.

This tutorial will show you how to right click on a touchscreen in Windows 10.

Note   Note
Starting with Windows 10 build 16237, Microsoft updated Start so that if you press and hold on an app in the all apps list, the context menu will now appear after a moment, rather than first having to lift your finger.

Here's How:

1. If applicable, select one or more items you want to right click on.

2. Press and hold on the item(s) with your finger. (see screenshot below)
