Side effect of the switch

I noticed one annoying side effect of the switch. I used to be able to hold down the control key while tapping the trackpad on my PowerBook to get the equivalent of a right click – e.g.: context menus in Firefox and Finder. Holding down my new control key (the key formerly known as caps lock) and tapping the trackpad doesn’t work. Curiously, holding the key down and pressing the trackpad button does work though. I almost never touch that button though.

Bummer.

Anybody figure out a way to make it work?

P.S.: I think I’m starting to get ACCUSTOMED TO NEW SWAPPED KEY BINDING AND I’M NOT ACCIDENTALLY HITTING CAPS LOCK (WHEN I MEANT TO HIT CONTROL) AS MUCH.

  1. Is there some way to make the middle click work , just like Ctrl-click for the right click?

  2. I’ve found that just pressing and holding the trackpad button for a moment brings up the context menu.
