A term used to describe the action of pressing down on the right mouse button. The right-click is used to provide additional functionality to a computer's mouse, usually in the form of a drop-down menu containing additional options.
For example, you could select text using the left mouse button, and then right-click that text to copy the text into the clipboard. This action could allow the user to paste that text into another field or document. The image shows an example of the right-click menu in Microsoft Word.
