most mac users going ape over a single click mouse?

i'm serious. in todays computing there is no room for a single click. when i'm gaming, like in WoW, i use the right click to move my toon left and right while the keyboard handles running and fighting.

its wasteful to have to hold the command key. you get killed if you have to use the command key to tie up your only click.


when browsing the web, if i wanna save a link, i use a right click. if i wanna open it in a new tab, i use right click.

the list goes on and on. so why do people hail the mighty mouse as some technological revolution? its the same one click it always has been. its dead.



and to be honest, the 12 dollar hp 4 button i got from walmart, works way better than the single button i got with my emac.

Don't make presumptions. Go to system preferences>Keyboard& Mouse> Mouse> then there will be a diagram of a mouse. Click where it says primary button, then go to the drop down menu, and click secondary button. Right click is now on the mouse.

Import the files where? To an Email?

If you have the old Single Button Apple mouse then what was suggested above will not work. All the newer Apple mice are multi button. Get another mouse.


The person above that gave you the suggestion in the mouse control panel did not know you have a OLD Apple mouse. Like I said all Apple mice in the last few years now have multi buttons.

Out of all honesty, I hardly ever use the "right-click" in OS X. With dragging/dropping being universal among the OS and apps, it just makes things easier. Really helps with multi-tasking and speeding up productivity.

If I need to right-click, I will (I use a Wacom tablet, so it's right there if need be), or I just use keyboard shortcuts for the most part.

Which version of iMovie? Might make a difference. I missed the imovie part while reading all your single button mouse post.

I just imported some pics into iMovie from iPhoto but I am still using iMovie 06 so do tell which version you have there.

Interesting as that is what I am still using. Are you going to Media and then the photos tab? I can drag any photo into iMovie from there. Just tried it.
