Right clicking is finally something in Gmail with the arrival of these new advanced features. It used to be an annoyance when you had to right click on something but now it makes you wonder how you ever lived without it. You no longer have to move your cursor to the right or left while clicking. The convenience alone is worth the switch.
You no longer have to hold down the shift key while you drag the mouse to the right or the left. Instead of having to shift your entire keyboard layout it makes more sense to simply move your mouse cursor over the item you want to click and allow the computer to do the rest. You no longer have to move your fingers across the keyboard and hope you hit the right keys. It is much easier than the old way. Even better, the new feature is built into the operating system so you don’t even have to think about it.
What makes this feature even better is that it is actually integrated into the email client you are using. So instead of having to learn a new way to do right clicking, you will be automatically doing it. Just like pressing the Alt key instead of the left key does. You can even change what you are clicking by clicking the menu bar and then clicking the options. That means you can set it up to be predictive.
Imagine if you could make right clicking the same as dragging your finger. Right clicking is just as easy and just as effective as dragging your finger on the keyboard. You could get very comfortable with the way it works in a matter of minutes.
Another great use for right clicking is typing. As I said, it is now integrated into the email client so when you type something you will know where to click to next. As you get used to typing it will feel natural to do it this way. In fact, after some time it may feel like a second nature to do it. So imagine how much easier it would be to type out a report or an essay or what have you when you could simply drag your finger over the keyboard. That would make it so much easier to get things done in a timely manner.
Many times keyboard shortcuts are necessary to make things easier. But in this case it is so much better to do them right from the keyboard. This way you can get a better workout without ever coming in contact with the mouse. And who doesn’t want to get fit using the keyboard while staying away from the dreaded mouse?
The final reason to learn and practice right clicking with the keyboard is because it is so much fun. It is a release of tension and stress and also helps expand your imagination. After a few days you will probably wonder how you could do without this skill. It is not that difficult once you get the hang of it.
There are even some programs that actually offer a tutorial on this very topic. So take advantage of that while you are looking for a program that you know works well. Also, check the price. Often the least expensive of these programs will offer a money back guarantee. If they don’t have that, you can be assured that they are either very old or haven’t been updated in a very long time. Get a program that offers a guarantee of at least a few weeks so that you don’t waste your time on those that don’t really work.
