To "click" on something means to move the mouse cursor over the object and click the left mouse button one time.  A click (also known as left click or single click) is used to select items from a menu, such as the start menu, to perform actions in programs (rarely does a program require a double click, but there are a few exceptions) and is always used on web pages to interact with links.  Double clicks are never used on web pages or in menus.

To click ALWAYS means to click the left mouse button one time.  It never refers to the right mouse button and never refers to clicking more than once.
