Most keyboards have a handy key that performs the logical equivalent of a mouse right-click on whichever screen item currently has focus (no mouse involved). The right-click usually brings up a context menu, of course.
PROBLEM: My Dell XPS 12 has no right-click key on its keyboard; not even with the 'Fn' function key.
*** Question: Is there any way to fashion a right-click key by using just the keyboard, on Dell XPS 12?
Dell XPS 12 and Dell Inspiron doesn't have the right-click keyboard shortcut.
You can try the Shift+F10.
Unfortunately, there isn't a way to assign the right click key. I did some research and found AutoHotkey software using which you can tweak some keyboard functions. Here is the link http://bit.ly/LWW4.
Note: Dell has not tested this software nor endorses it.
Hope this information helps.

I guess the key you are looking for is the Apps-key.Your XPS 12 keyboard obviously doesn't have one.It is possible to to use Autohotkey to remap one of the other keys to make it behave like an Apps-key.
Looking at an XPS 12 keyboard "F7" could be a perfect choice for remapping since it has no multimedia assignment
This is the code if you want to try Autohotkey :
how to use Autohotkey
If you wish I could also give you the link to an executable autohotkey file - this file would run without having to install Autohotkey - this is the easiest way for you but you would have to trust me since Windows usually identifies all exe-files as virus,malware,malicious etc - even its own files.....
Hi, why would anyone sell a $1200 laptop with no right click? Dissappointing. I have been struggling with this for 2 yrs and finally decided to check into it only to find Dell designed it this way!??
How complicated to install a full scripting software instead of using Shift-F10...?
Thanks, Signam RB. I was searching for same workaround for Latitude E7240 keyboard, also lacking Apps Key. Shift+F10 does the trick!
