    Hi there

    I've moved from Windows to an iMac and I've been having some problems recently. For some reason, whenever I click on a menu item (in all software) or by right clicking, the context menu that appears vanishes very quickly (1 second). As a result, I am not quick enough to click on the option I want and it is very frustrating.

    Has anyone experienced this? I am on Mavericks and this problem occurs with the official Apple keyboard and mouse and also a Microsoft keyboard and mouse that I am using. I must add that I am also using Hyperdock, but I'm pretty sure that this is not causing it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hold the button and move your cursor while holding it.
    Then look into changing this in System Preferences/Settings.

    Thanks for your help - unfortunately, it still does it. In some cases, when I am just left clicking, holding down a button on a program (e.g. Spotify), won't show the menu at all as it requires a single click.
