How can I right-click on Raspbian from a Mac keyboard when I am connected via VNC?

I have tried Ctrl + Click and some other obvious choices without success. ctrl+click on a link in the browser, for example, opens up the link in a new tab instead of opening a context menu as I would expect a right-click to do.

    Apple's 'right click' options are covered here. If those don't work, it's your VNC configuration. That question has been asked many, many times.

Tapping the trackpad with two fingers may work.

If it doesn't, then tap the ‘mouse’ icon from the little navigation bar at the top of the main VNC screen. Then you'll see a mirrored L kinda thing on the lower-right corner of the screen. It's divided into three parts. The far right section sends a right click signal.

I hope it works. Cheers!
