How To Right Click On Ipad
The iPad comes with a lot of interesting features but it doesn’t integrate in its design many physical buttons, so a mouse is out of the question. However, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t provide a way to simulate the behavior of a right mouse click. That touch-sensitive screen deserves more credit than we give it, because sometimes it ends up simplifying our work. So, if you are interested in discovering how to right click on the iPad as well as a few other tricks that you may not be aware of, you should stick around.
Let’s start by learning together how right clicks can be simulated on an iPad. All you have to do is first of all locate a target that hides an option menu. A suitable target can be a link, a page or an image. After you locate such a target, you will simply have to position your finger above its surface and then press and hold the finger on that surface for around 5 seconds. As a result, you will notice the display of a menu that lists various actions that you can perform on the selected item. Isn’t that similar with the functionality of aright click? The menu displayed usually includes options such as “Save”, “Copy”, “Paste” and “Open in New Page”. If you are interested in using one of them, you will have to lift your finger and tap the option of choice. It’s much easier and faster than trying to locate these features elsewhere. It will also remind you of your computer and mouse. The only thing that you need to keep in mind is that this right-click procedure doesn’t work within each app and each time can provide a different set of features depending on the item targeted.
Another nice trick related to the touchscreen involves taking screenshots. If you are interested in this possibility, all you will need to do is press the Home button and then the Sleep/Wake button. You will know that the screenshot has been successfully taken when you will hear a click. The resulting image will be saved by default in the iPad’s Photos Gallery. You will then be able to view the screenshot at any time or email it to a friend.
The iPad’s touchscreen also offers support for multitasking gestures. You will be able to use four and five finger gestures that will simplify tasks, but you will have to first install Xcode on a Mac computer. It will be a little tricky to make the necessary settings, but afterwards you will have fun discovering new capabilities of the underestimated iPad touchscreen. And these are just a few of the tricks possible.
