Windows 10 and Fusion 8 and MAC

I have installed Windows 10 with Fusion 8 on my MAC.

How can I activate the right mouse click to allow the "usual" windows functions?

Thank you.

Welcome to iMore!

Unlike OS X, most other operating systems require the use of multibutton mice. Most Mac users know you can ctrl-click to simulate a right click, and you can do that in Fusion as well. But if you actually want to ctrl-click select multiple items in Explorer?

In Fusion’s Preferences, go to the Keyboard & Mouse tab, Mouse Shortcuts. Uncheck the secondary button shortcut (or map it to something else) – now you can ctrl-click.

If you still need to right click and don’t want to remap to a different shortcut, there may be other options. For laptop users, you can enable two-finger right clicks in System Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse > Trackpad. If you have a Mighty Mouse, you can enable right click in System Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse > Mouse. OS X has always supported multibutton mice, you can always plug in your favorite multibutton mouse.
