    Every so often my right click just doesnt work-it only works as a single click, and i still have to hold apple+click...ive found just turning the mouse on and off fixes this problem, but still only temporary. its a 70 dollar mouse, i just dont see why my right click wont RIGHT CLICK! Anyone know what im doing wrong? is it a defect? or what? This is frustraiting though...thats for sure.

    make sure there are no fingers touching the left side of your mouse when you right click. It's a little weird to get used to.

    :rofl: That was the most blatant attempt to start an argument I've seen, what a surprise it's source lacks a sub. Until you get me repair records for Apple mice vs. Microsoft mice you're simply speculating.

    that was almost the most blatant attempt at being an apple fanboy ive seen. No product is perfect, but im constantly reading about broken mighty mice.

    p.s. where would one find such "repair records"?

    :rofl: I am the farthest thing from an "apple fanboy" you've ever seen. I like Apple's products, don't get me wrong, but I also like Windows and Linux. I've only used Apple for the past 2 years.

    Ever think that you might be seeing more reports for broken mighty mice because people like to find faults with Apple? Yes, Apple users often find faults with MS, but let's not forget there are 10 times more MS users and therefore will be a significantly larger # of people bashing Apple products, which would account for you noticing more accounts. Or, maybe you don't like Apple, so will pay more attention to reports of Apple failures, selfbiasing it to appear that there are more problems than industry average with Might Mice.

    Btw, I don't know where to find repair statistics, if I did I would find them myself. My point is that unless you either have inside information or have researched the repair statistics, all this talk is speculation, which is... effectively pointless?
