right-click definition

hardware
To click the right-most mouse button on a mouse with more than one button. This usually performs a different function from the left button, e.g. displaying a context-sensitive menu (Microsoft Windows), extending the selection (X).
When used as a verb it is often written as two words with a space instead of a hyphen.
