    So my Mighty Mouse won't right click. I set the right button as "secondary" which if I'm right, should mean right click. Am I really off base here? In any event, I still have to ctrl + click (on either side of the mighty mouse) to get to right click menus. Nothing huge, but a bit of a pain.

    Also, the two side buttons on my mouse are crazy sensitive. I had to disable them since the way I hold the mouse meant they were opening menus non-stop.

    Any tips/advice?

    make sure that your index finger is completely off of the left side of the mouse. Even if it is barely resting on it, the sensor will pick it up and it will register it as a left click and not a right one.

    It still doesn't work, and my hand was totally off the mouse when I pressed the right button. Any other ideas?

    Janky mouse? Try to return it and exchange it for another?

    I can still click with the right side it just doesn't translate into a right-click on my screen, which leads me to believe it's a software problem.
