When someone tells you to click on something, they mean:

  1. Use your mouse (or other pointing device) to move the cursor until it is positioned on the thing they want you to click on.
  2. Briefly click and release a mouse button. If there are multiple buttons on your mouse, and the instructions don't specify which one, they usually mean the left one. Usually if they want you to use the right-hand or center button they'll say ``right-click'' or ``middle-click.''
    Note: if you are left-handed, you can set up your pointing device so that the left and right buttons are reversed. Ask at the help desk for details.
