Default Right-click with Mac? [SOLVED]

How can I right click with a Mac-mouse? Or suppose there is no mouse and you have only the touchpad. It looks like the (Falcon-)manual thinks you have an option to chose. But as far as I know a mac mouse has only one button to click which will be taken as a left-click. And in any way, my touchpad has certainly no right click option available.

How can I select a pull down menu on a mac like in Windows? Many features are not available to me as of now. I'm puzzled.

Anyone?

Go to system preferences and then mouse or trackpad and can be configured there.

Personally I'd get a regular two button mouse. Supposedly there's a way with the current Apple mice to do a right click - you just have to be careful about it. I know it sounds weird but that single surface on current Apple rodents can actually function like a regular two button mouse.

+1

SteerMouse ($20) is excellent if you use a mouse with extra buttons.
SteerMouse is a utility that lets you freely customize buttons, wheels and cursor speed. Both USB and Bluetooth mice are supported, no matter whether the mouse is designed for Windows or Mac.


A demo is available at:

Didn't know there are two button mice for Mac. Steermouse might come as a solution as Richard901 suggests. Used to Windows machines, always thought two mouse buttons are a must. Mac has more awkwardness to it, a lot of it which may be solved with the two button mouse.
