Okay, I haven't had a one button mouse for a while, but had to buy the apple one simply because it is beautiful (for non-power use with my PB on the road). Now, am I imagining things, or did holding down the mouse button formerly get you the contextual menu (control click)? Have I just remembered incorrectly, or what?
TIA,
M.

You remember incorrectly. That works in Netscape and IE, but holding it down does nothing in the rest of the system.

Although there is a shareware control panel which will enable the click and hold for contextual menus.

Check out "FinderPop" at www.resexcellence.com it lets you set contextual menu's to pop up after a specific time of holding down.

The control panel which allows context menus to pop up when holding down one click is called finderpop, Looks like OS X from Jobs' demo has something like this
