If you’ve ever typed a lengthy document on a computer, you probably know how frustrating it can be. One wrong keystroke, and you’ve lost something important. That’s why we should start embracing the digital keyboard. What is RMB on the keyboard? You can read this blog.
You use your left hand to control the keyboard, and your right hand can be used as a mouse or controller (if you are playing video games).
But what about the middle finger? The pinky finger? Especially the Ring finger, which doesn’t seem to have any function on the keyboard? It is where RMB comes in.
Many people generally ignore the ring finger because it’s not much of a “useful” finger when typing on a keyboard since pressing any key with a ring finger feels awkward.
However, thanks to evolution, now this seemingly useless finger has emerged as one of the most important keys that are often overlooked even by experienced gamers!
RMB for Gaming Purposes:
RMB means “right mouse button.” When playing games on a computer, the RMB is used for many purposes.
Like any other shooter game, you can attack by pressing RMB. It could be clicking to target enemies or shooting bullets.
2) Interaction with game objects
This function is essential in MMORPG (massively-multiplayer online role-playing games). Usually, several symbols appear on the ground all over the map, which players can interact with to obtain quests, treasures, and so on. To use these unique interactions, press RMB on it!
Usually, when exploring new areas of a map or town or cities in MMOs, they will put down some mini-map (mini-compass) on the corner of your screen to help players navigate. To rotate this, press RMB!
4) Chat/Open friends list
Most MMORPGs nowadays provide a chat system, and the little speech bubble at the bottom left is used for that purpose: to communicate with other players.
However, it’s not very convenient because you need to click and hold then release after typing every single letter of each word. Instead, pressing the “R” key will bring up a quick shortcut menu where you can pick up preset messages such as greetings, thank you, or even swear words without having to type them out completely! And if you need to open a friends list to add new friends, check out the friend who just sent you a message, etc., there’s another press-and-hold shortcut menu for that too.
5) Momentary Walk
If you hold RMB while walking around normally, your character will continue to walk until you click again to stop. But sometimes it could be tiring putting the mouse all the way down on your desk because not only are you already holding the W key (forward) but also pressing MMB is difficult since it requires quite some movement compared to other keys.
So, in this case, you can just tap RMB once, and your character will instantaneously start walking a one-time frame! It is beneficial when running away from enemies because sometimes it gets very intense, and you need to click quickly!
In conclusion, RMB is one of the most valuable keys to playing games on PC. Some people even use it in place of the W key because keeping your fingers on both W and MMB can be tiring after a while. So next time when you play a game with your ring finger holding RMB, don’t forget about this fantastic evolutional gift.
