Making VMWare View’s right-click work on a trackpad
In the current VMWare View 5 client, there is not a setting to enable right-click functionality. Instead, the client relies on the Mac’s settings to set what is a “right click”.
For Mac desktops, this should be pretty straightforward with an external mouse. On a Mac laptop with a trackpad, you need to make sure that the Secondary Click option is turned on in the Trackpad preference pane. Secondary Click allows you to right-click by clicking on the trackpad with two side-by-side fingers.
To verify that the Secondary Click option is enabled, use the following procedure:
1. Open System Preferences
2. Click on Trackpad
3. Click on the Point & Click tab and verify that Secondary Click is checked. If not checked, click on the checkbox to enable it.
