Many people have been looking for solution to this problem even searching on Dell official website but when desirable is not available the available becomes desirable, so follow this simple steps below and learn how you can manage your notebook for the main time.

What is Left and Right clck button?

The above circled area is the place where Left and Right click button is located in a laptop computers/notebook.

Now i have explain how my own problem started and it's time to tell you how i was able to make use of my Dell laptop with keyboard problems.

First you must admit that you don't know the use of all Laptop keyboards and i will show you another Key that can do the same work as the right click button.

How to make use of the Alternative Right click button

Yes i have been using my Dell even with the keyboard problem though not convenient sometimes but can be managed till you fix it or get another Notebook.

Whenever you want to use a right click button to command an action simply point your cursor or touch your cursor to mark the selected action and then press the button at the right side of your notebook as you can see on the image above.

Selecting and copying images
Selecting images and copying it might be a bit challenging but there is always a solution, some images can just be selected and commanded by just pointing your cursor to the image and pressing the Alternative right click button but some image will not give you the needed options like SAVE AS instead you will see VIEW PAGE SOURCE, VIEW PAGE INFO etc.

In that case you need to take a screenshot and edit it with the default windows image editor or any other image editor and crop the image area you need and save it in any format you want.
