OS X :: Menu Highlight Gone (Right Click On Options)

Mar 7, 2008

That's what I see when my mouse is over any menu item and when it's not over any menu item. I've lost menu highlight on the menu bar and the contextual menu (via right click on files and folders) My system is running OS 10.5.2. I've already tried fixing disk permissions. It's like my mouse has gone into stealth mode. Interface can no longer detect my cursor is hovering over them. E.g. Hovering over a web link doesn't highlight that it's a link and status bar below doesn't print the url address of that link. Last thing I could remember was telling Opera 9.25 to give me a pop up regarding web cookies. That's when I lost menu highlight.

OS X :I Can't Click On Any Of The Menu Options And Expose Stops Working?

Jul 6, 2009

I'm on an older blackbook (2 years old? ca. summer 2007) running Leopard and I'm getting some weird behavior with Finder. When I right click on anything in the dock, i.e., to close a program, the dock locks up, I can't click on any of the menu options, Expose stops working and the alt+tab interface stops working, as if everything is frozen... This caused me to think that Finder was crashing, but then I discovered that when I went up to the menubar at the top, everything "unfroze." The dock went back to normal and was usable, expose works fine and the alt-tab interface works fine too.

OS X Mavericks :: After Updating To 10.9.3 Right-click Menu Bar Doesn't Show Many Options

Jun 3, 2014

I downloaded and installed the OS Maverick's recent 10.9.3 update on my 15" Retina Macbook Pro. However since then I am unable to use certain features, like when I right-click on the Desktop, the menu bar shows only two possible options. I cannot "clean up" the icons on my Desktop anymore. Futhermore, I cannot right-click on some places at all - in Finder for example, nothing happens when I right-click on blank space. Only when I right-click on the icons itself does the menu bar pop up, and that only if the viewing mode is in list, columns, or cover flow (basically not in the "icons" viewing mode). 

If I understand correctly instead of showing the possible actions that you can't do in grey, it's simply not showing them at all? Either way it's really ugly, and the usefull clean up application is gone!

Where before I could change my battery preference from "Better Performance, Normal or Better Battery" right in the menu bar when I clicked it.

Now, It doesn't give me that option and I can only change it in System Prefs.?

Is there an option to check that might have some hoe got unchecked?

OS X :: Customize Right Click Menu?

Dec 31, 2010

Is there a way to customize the right click menu on a Mac magic mouse? I would like to add "select all" and "copy" without having to use keyboard shortcuts? If not, is there a 3rd-party software app that can accomplish this?

I am looking for a way to customize the contextual menu when I right click using the mouse to "select all" and "copy" in a Word document or a Web page.

I am running Mac OS 10.6.5 and using a Magic Mouse.

Windows On Mac :: Mouse With Scroll Click Options?

Oct 6, 2010

bought an apple mouse and it won't connect, but reading on the forums the scroll click won't work anyways. and to be honest i wasn't happy about spending $75 on a mouse.

can i buy any windows mouse to run on it? i'd assume yes but want to verify. what i need is a mouse with the center scroll click to grab objects in pro/e to rotate them, which i can't do right now and its making things more difficult than it should. suggestions on mouses, or ones that you know do or don't work. does not matter if its wireless or wired. and if i can be picky preferably black.

Mac Pro :: Click On Icon / Program Menu Does Not Appear At Top Of Screen

Sep 5, 2014

Mac Pro 8 core with LG 21:9 monitor,  res set to 3440x1440.  It thinks there is also a Sony 1080P monitor attached.  Some programs will open their window in some place I cannot see, I am assuming on the non existent monitor. There is no cycling through or access to anywhere else.  If I open a new screen (#4) and try to open Messages it also will not display the window.  The dock indicates that the program is open but if you click on the icon the program menu does not appear at the top of the screen.

Applications :: Photoshop CS3 With SL - Random Menu Options Grayed Out?

Sep 8, 2009

Admittedly, I'm one of the not-quite-thinking-straight early adopters of Snow Leopard. I performed an update install & everything went quite well (very fast boot times, etc.) However, my Photoshop CS3 has some weird things happening (all other CS3 apps work fine!). I can open, edit & save images with no probs. But, there are numerous menu options that are grayed out, like "File>Quit"!! In order to quit the app, I have to force quit every time. Also, several other commands in the Path window are grayed out. I have not tried reinstalling SL, since everything else is working perfectly.

Applications :: Safari - No Contextual Menu With Right Click On Link

Feb 13, 2010

When going to a linked page in Safari I usually want to open it in a new tab or a new window and occasionally to do other things with it. So I'm used to right-clicking on links to bring up a contextual menu offering me:

Open Link in New Window
Open Link in New Tab
Download Linked File
Download Linked File As...
Add Link to Bookmarks...

Copy Link: I noticed the loss of this menu when my wife wanted me to look at web pages she had found related to a possible holiday. Using Safari in her account on our iMac, I found no menu appeared when I right-clicked on a link. I checked she had the "secondary button" set up OK in the mouse preferences and I also found right-clicking worked OK elsewhere. I then tried other ways of making the menu appear on a link (CTRL-clicking or holding down the left, primary button); neither worked!................

Software :: How To Create A Folder In Finder Via A Right-click Menu

May 4, 2010

I like to have Finder displaying as a list. It's nice. However, when I try to create a new folder, it puts it at the top-most directory displayed. Very irritating. If possible, I'd like to right-click on an already existing folder and create a folder there (instead of creating it at the top-most directory and then moving the darn thing into place, which seems overly complicated for the task that I'm trying to accomplish.) Is there a way to do this? What about left-clicking on a directory and then pressing some other keyboard/button combination and have a new folder created in there?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Services Missing From Right Click Menu?

May 24, 2012

I was trying to install some services that I created using applescripts and ThisService. The problem I'm having is that Services is not available in the menu when I right click on a folder or file. Looking under Keyboard in the system preferences, I can see all of the different services that are availible. I have the ones I'd like to use checked but no services appear in the menu when I right click. I've tried resetting defaults in the preferences, logging in and out, restarting and nothing helps. I found another post that said open terminal and run this /System/Library/CoreServices/pbs. When I enter that in the terminal, I get this message "No languages specified - assuming English" and nothing changes. I'm running 10.6.8 and I know that Services used to be avalible in the menu.

OS X :: Bluetooth Wireless Mighty Mouse Left And Right Click Options

Dec 5, 2009

Clicking with the left and right mouse buttons doesn't seem to be working properly. I first realised this when a message box warning me of low disk space popped up and I couldn't click on OK. Scrolling with the ball works, as does clicking with it. I restarted my iMac and removed the batteries from the mouse for a minute, but all that happened was that left and right clicks started acting like middle clicks. A wired mighty mouse works fine. I've tried cleaning it by turning it upside down and rubbing the ball on paper and a clean damp cloth, no change.

Software :: Won't Show Folder Options After Double Click On Hard Drive

May 18, 2009

I have used Macs since 1983 and for the life of me I can't figure this out. I can create a folder on the desktop, double click it, and the folder actions are there. I double click on the hard drive itself and no folder actions, and no way to get them back.

I've repaired permissions. I've used OnyX. I've used TinkerTool to see if there's some hidden options. I've Gotten info and Finder/Preferences -- Nothing.

OS X :: Finder's Context Menu By Control Click Stopped Working?

Oct 3, 2009

Mac PowerBook Pro with OSX 10.5.8

Control click stopped working and does not give me a contextual menu in the finder or any other program (including Stickies or Word) anymore.

I tried resetting Keyboard & Mouse System Preferences to default. I looked for Finder preference, or Finder preference file (it used to be "com.apple.finder.plist" according to an old 2005 forums.Macrumors post) but i could not find one.

I just reinstalled Leopard a couple of weeks ago, and do not want to go thru that again if i can avoid it.
