Your welcome. Glad to be of service, brody. Bid is only 10 bucks at the moment. Wunderbar has served me well. I have a friend that is absolutely convinced that it has to be done with magnets. I've done it literally inches from him at least 6 times & it blows him away every time. Best money I've ...

You guys haven't used a Mac in a while. The option to use a 2 button mouse with a Mac has been supported since 1997 &, since 2005 with the introduction of the Mighty Mouse, all Mac mice have the option to use right click.
