Hi, my name is Luke, and this is "alternative to right-click in Windows." Sometimes, the right-click function of your mouse might not be working, or maybe Windows just isn't recognizing it. An alternative feature to right-clicking is a button on the keyboard, located towards the right side of the keyboard. You can find this button between the control and the alt key, on the right side of the space bar. It looks like an arrow with a little menu. Highlight whatever you'd like to right-click by left-clicking it, and then, press this button. It will bring up the same menu that you'd get if you were able to right-click. The only thing you might find is that sometimes, this may or may not work, when clicking on the task bar. And, that's it.
