    I own an iMac with a Mighty Mouse, and I play certain games that require a right-click function. The problem is, I can't stand using OS X with secondary click enabled. Call me a traditionalist, but the design of the mouse annoys me when it gains the ability to right-click. So, every time I want to play one of these games, I have to open System Preferences and enable secondary click, and afterwards I have to reverse the process. Long and tedious. After poking through the depths of Automator to see if I could develop a workflow of this action and coming up empty, I scoured Google to see if I could find a terminal command (which I should be able to incorporate into Automator) or an AppleScript to enable/disable secondary click, but I found nothing. Does anybody know how I would go about this?

    Thanks in advance,

    Use Automator's record function (hit the red button in the top right corner of the Automator window)
