Default problem with cutting and pasting

I recently spilled tea on my keyboard and since then can't right click to cut and paste which is very handy to do my notes etc. I'm not 100% sure if the tea was the cause of it but it's been happening since then. If I right click nothing happens--any suggestions??? In all other areas laptop seems fine?

Instead of using the right-click method, simply use the following keyboard short cuts:

Copy: Ctrl+C

Paste: Ctrl+V

Cut: Ctrl+X

Does your laptop have a menu key? If so, that will help with your right-click problem.

Shift-F10 usually brings up the context menu.
