The phrase to click on means to select (a screen object) by moving the mouse pointer to the object's position and clicking a mouse button.

Some operations require a double click, meaning that you must click a mouse button twice in rapid succession. Shift clicking refers to clicking the mouse button while holding the Shift key down.
