Today I had to use iRdesktop on my iPhone to perform some tasks on a Windows 7 computer at my house via a Remote Desktop Connection. The iRdesktop application allows you to make connections to Windows Remote Desktop on your iPhone or iPod Touch. While performing my tasks I needed to right click a file and wasn’t exactly sure how to do it with iRdesktop. After some playing around with the application I figured out how to right click from within the iRdesktop application. Below there is more information on how to right-click using iRdesktop on your Apple iDevice.

Once you have made an iRdesktop remote connection to a Windows computer click on the iPhone touch screen and hold it for a second or two. When doing this you will see the menu that appears when you typically right click as shown in the below example image.
