Chapter 1. How the Mac Is Different > That One-Button Mouse

1.2. That One-Button Mouse

Every Windows mouse ever made has at least two mouse buttons. You use the left one for selecting things, and the right one for making shortcut menus appear (Figure 1-2). If you have a newer mouse, it might even have a scroll wheel in the middle for efficiently scrolling long documents and Web pages.

The mouse that came with your Mac, however, has only one mouse button—the equivalent of the Windows left mouse button. You use it exclusively for selecting and clicking things.
