(hardware)click - To press and release a button on a mouse or other pointing device. This generates an event, also specifying the screen position, which is processed by the window manager or application program. On a mouse with more than one button, the unqualified term usually implies pressing the left-most button (with the right index finger), other buttons would be qualified, e.g. "right-click". Keyboard modifiers may also be used, e.g. "shift-click", meaning to hold down the shift key on the keyboard while clicking the mouse button.

If the mouse moves while the button is pressed then this is a drag.
