Right-clicking with the Mighty Mouse in Windows XP.

After setting up an Intel iMac with XP, courtesy of Boot Camp, I noticed a nice little feature that Apple added to XP for the Mighty Mouse. If you click on the front right-side of the Mighty Mouse in XP, you’ll get the contextual menu to pop up just like if you had a two-button mouse and you right-clicked. It took me a few minutes to figure this out, but it’s a nice little feature that I did not see documented on the Apple Boot Camp site. It doesn’t appear to be available in the copy of Windows XP I have running separately in Parallel’s virtualization software, so it must be included in the drivers package that Apple has you install as part of the Boot Camp setup process.

Anybody else find an undocumented gem with Boot Camp? Share it in the comments.
