Mighty Mouse and fix.
While checking my RSS feed subscriptions today (I’m really trying hard to make that part of my regular routine), I ran across this article at MacOSHints.com: “One possible fix for a broken Mighty Mouse right click.” In it, the author (luomat) writes:
I bought myself a wireless Mighty Mouse during Apple’s Black Friday sale. For the life of me, I could not get the right-click to work, even after enabling it in the System Preferences panel. I tried tapping all over the place on the right side of the mouse and it worked maybe one out of twenty times as I muttered “Why couldn’t they just build a real two-button mouse?”
His brief article goes on to discuss the fix.
Unfortunately, I’m going to have to buy a Mighty Mouse just so I can write about it in my upcoming Leopard book. As I’ve learned over time, if you don’t have certain hardware installed, certain options related specifically to that hardware just doesn’t appear. (Hence, the need for 3 iPods over the past 5 years. Sheesh.)
But I agree with luomat: Why can’t they just build a real two-button mouse?
