This quick overview will explain how to ‘right-click’ when you’re using VNC Viewer (by RealVNC) for Android or iOS (iPhone’s and iPad’s).
The short and quick answer is: tap the screen with two fingers. Here’s the problem – it can be bafflingly difficult to accomplish this one seemingly easy gesture. Fortunately, there’s another way.
- Tap the ‘mouse’ icon from the little navigation bar at the top of the main VNC screen.
- On the bottom-right corner of the VNC screen, a small “reversed L” ( ⅃ ) is superimposed over the window. The bottom ‘bar’ part of the ⅃ is separated into 3 parts. If you tap the leftmost section, it will send a “left-click” to the VNC window. If you tap the center section, a “middle-click” will be sent. Which leaves the far right section – our sought after “right-click”.
- When you tap that right-click section, the right-click action will occur wherever the cursor is currently located in the guest operating system, so make sure it’s in the right place first.
