For many, the learning curve to go from PC to Mac is an easy one… and for others tiny little differences add up to quick frustration.
Take the right-mouse click motion that is very much a standard for every PC user. The default configuration for OSX does not enable the right-mouse click which means the transitioning user is continually clicking on the right side of their mouse and not getting the intended response.
Now, it may seem a little strange right-mouse clicking on an input device that has no visible right and left buttons to it, but make this configuration change and you will be greatly rewarded.
- Choose System Preferences… from the Apple Menu (top left icon on any screen with a visible menu)
- Under the row labeled Hardware, click Mouse
- Enable Secondary Click by selecting the checkbox next to the option
- Click on right side should be now set as the default (although you can change it to left if you prefer)
- Close your System Preferences window
