    In Lion how does someone right click with the magic mouse? I realize with a macbook pro you can two finger double tab for the "right click" function to happen on a website link.

    I primarily like to open multiple tabs here in the forums and I know I can press the command button then click on the link, but is there a way to do it just from the magic mouse only?

    You should be able to right click by lifting your left finger and clicking with the right. If that doesn't work, just make sure that option is checked in system prefs -> mouse.

    You can go to System Preferences > Mouse > and check the box that allows you to secondary right click with it.

    May need to restart System Preferences

    I've got a Logitech mouse connected to my system, and wanted to try out a Mighty Mouse. I linked it up, clicked "Mouse" in System Preferences, and the "Secondary click" preference was not there (nor "Scroll direction", etc)! It turns out that I had to exit System Preferences and restart it. Now when I select "Mouse", the preferences applicable to the Mighty Mouse (including "Secondary click") are there. Spooky!
