Is there anyway to use my Mac single click mouse with Vista?

Asked by Supergirl (1671 points ) November 9th, 2008

I just finally finished partitioning my Mac to use Windows on part of it. Is there any way to right-click with Vista using my single click Mac mouse? The usual ctrl+click doesn’t work….

I’m told by my fiends that there sadly is no way. It only has one click…

Does your mac support multi-touch? (Mac G4+) If it does, then you should be able to turn on “two-finger” click, like for the mac and that should do it. (It works for XP, at least, on my MacBook Black Edition One)

Are you on a laptop? Boot Camp has some feature to enable right click with laptop trackpads. Check in the Boot Camp preferences (on your windows partition.)

If you’re not on a laptop, then you might need to buy another mouse.

oh good point, I didn’t even think to ask if it were a laptop… oops.

can’t you ctrl+click?

Or Program one of your function keys to be that key?

Is this the mighty mouse, or the one before it? as the mighty mouse on Windows defaults to having both mouse buttons available.

Get a real mouse :)
Or see if your keyboard has the right-click button which is usually to the right of the spacebar in between CTRL/Command and ALT/Opt. On a PC keyboard it will look like this:
