I am the queen of the keyboard but am stuck on how to perform certain tasks.
Does anyone know what is the keyboard shortcut for the equivalent of the
right-hand click of a mouse on a icon. And also how on my desktop can I
access the right-hand side of my taskbar (I think it is called). It
contains my antivirus, internet connection, windows message icon etc.
thanks in advance

Select the icon then SHIFT + F10 to get the right click menu.

SHIFT + F10 Displays the shortcut menu for the selected item.

The right hand side (by the clock) of the taskbar is called the Notification
Area.

Tab key and Arrow keys. You have to use the Tab key to get into the
Notification Area then the Arrow keys to move to each item.

The shortcut for the right click is the key with the menu and pointer
picture to the right of the spacebar, on some laptops it is up the top right

To access the system tray use the tab key to move the focus to it, once
inside use the arrow key to move left and right through the icons.
