Hi, Rather than continue being frustrated by this I thought I'd see if there's a way to increase the delay between left clicking and right clicking to open up the contextual menu in Finder. Often, I'll search through a list of files, selecting multiple files as I go along. But it seems that if I don't right click straight away after making my choice, all the files are deselected and I have to go back through the list to highlight the files I want to copy or move. Hope you get what I mean. Or perhaps there's an extra key, in addition to the command or shift key, I can hold down... Thanks, NoBob.
