The mouse on a desktop Mac looks like it has only one button, and the trackpad on most Mac laptops has no visible buttons at all—the whole pad is a single, large button. These designs send people who usually use two-button mice into a tizzy about how to right click.
And rightfully so...
Never fear, right click is still near!
Oh, S**t...this aught to be good...
On Mac laptops, right click by placing two fingers down on the trackpad (it’s easiest with your pointer and middle fingers) and click the trackpad with another finger (like your thumb).
I...See... (We're up to 3 fingers now... for those that weren't counting)... and this is easier (exactly) than what?!?
New MacBooks also will right click when you place two fingers on the trackpad and press down. Using a one-button Apple mouse, just press Control and then click to see the same right-click functionality.
....or...or...or... (Dear god...Now I need two Hands..! how-many-fingers-is-that??) This explains why the new ultra secret Apple bases Toyota cars seem to keep rocketing off cliffs & into things. It's apparently do to the insistence that the hyper-velocity, passing acceleration mode be toggled by pressing the brake pedal sideways.
On the Mighty Mouse,
...Here - I - Am - To - Save - The - Day... (Ahem...)
enable right-click functionality in System Preferences, then just touch where the right-click button should be and it will work.
Right, so they saved the "Mighty-est" (Their word, not mine...) option for last...which was to do it the way it was supposed to be done in the first place...
If you’re sick of these new shortcuts, just plug in a mouse with a real right-click button and it will likely work on the Mac.
Absolutely Not! ...The devil I know is an old friend...and you people are crazy.
Yes, I'm in an odd (but playfull) mood this morning.
