The mouse buttons enable you to control the windows, icons, and menus on the Workspace. The terminology of the mouse and pointer is as follows:
Mouse buttons are referred to by function. From left to right, on a three-button mouse, these are: SELECT, ADJUST, and MENU. A two-button mouse has only SELECT and MENU; ADJUST is peformed by pressing the keyboard Shift key and clicking SELECT.
Figure 1-6 shows the function of each mouse button. Note that you can change this default arrangement. Chapter 17, Customizing the Solaris Environment describes how to swap SELECT and MENU for left-handed use.
You click ADJUST to make a secondary choice or modify what you have chosen with SELECT.
You press MENU (and hold) to make a choice from a menu. Throughout this text, "press" means to press and hold.
