Chapter 1. Mousing, Menus, and More > Click-and-drag vs. press-and-drag

Click-and-drag vs. press-and-drag

So on the previous two pages you used the mouse movement called click-and-drag, where you click once to bring the menu up, then you drag the mouse down the list without holding the button down, and click again. You can also use a press-and-drag in a menu to do the same thing, where you press, hold the mouse button down, then let go on the selected item.

Note

Unfortunately, in a lot of Macintosh documentation the writers use the term "click-and-drag" when they really mean "press-and-drag." If a click- and-drag instruction doesn't work, try press-and-drag.
