As a working technology teacher, I get hundreds of questions from parents about their home computers, how to do stuff, how to solve problems. Each Tuesday, I’ll share one of those with you. They’re always brief and always focused. Enjoy!
Q: I need a faster way to access menus. Is there one?
A: Yes, and you’ll love it. All PC’s have this unique mouse with both a left and a right button. The left one is for all the normal stuff, but the right one is for the most common activities performed from wherever you are–on the desktop, in a program, whatever.
If you’re trying to do something that you know should be easy, or you’ve done it before and can’t remember how you did it, try the right mouse click. It’ll drop down a menu of the most commonly-used choices. Chances are it’ll include what you want to do.
