    I've just bought myself a wireless mighty mouse to go with my Macbook pro and I'm finding that the right click button is very tetchy especially when using cut/copy and paste - is this because it's new and needs to wear in a little or is there something I need to set up on system preferences?

    At the moment I have the right click button set as secondary.

    Please help before I loose my rag and consign the bugger to the bin!

    I've noticed with the Mighty Mouse that the left-right click detection will be sporadic, unless you have your hand and fingers in the right spot. If, like me, your hands are too big to hold it properly, then use another mouse.

    i've found that i have to physically lift my left-click finger up from the mouse's surface before clicking for it to detect a right-click. once you get it right, it becomes pretty ingrained.
