    I'm pretty sure that Ctrl-Click works for me (or was it Shift-Click). IIRC though you can change the behaviour in the options.

    thought it was command-click myself, but plugging in a mouse might be easier!

    Re: RDP on Mac to a windows machine and right clicking ?

    I will try my mighty mouse out tonight and will check my system prefs to see what I have it set to for right clicking but I'm 99.9% sure that I have it set to ctrl - click to do a right click in mac os x but if I do that in the RDP session it just sits there doing nothing.

    Will post back later on with feedback

    As as a temp workaround see if SHIFT+F10 works in the RDP session.
    This should bring up the context (right-click) menu up.

    Is it not ctrl+shift and click by default? I haven't used it in a while.

    You can change the setting but the defauylt is indeed Ctrl+Left Shift+Click by default.

    On my macBook you can set it that tapping with 2 fingers on the touch pad is the alternate clokc, works perfectly with RDC

    i went into system preferences, then to keyboard and mouse, then i selected trackpad, and the option was in there.
