Two button ADB Mouse Repair


Recommended Posts

So I got old clicky clickerton out of the stack of stuff I bought recently.  The left microswitch was wasted so I went with a new one (have about 6-7 switches for modern Logitech mice).  Turns out the switches are identical today as the ones in this unit.  Soldered the new in place of the old and she feels like new!

 

Does anyone know what/if the right click does anything on legacy Mac OS (6-9)?

For earlier systems you need to have a driver/extension/control panel for the second button to be recognized. I don't recall when 2 button support was added into the system software itself.

 

Googling seems to indicate that two button support didn't arrive in the OS until OS X. That feels late to me, but heck, that was 20 years ago now, so my recollection certainly may be faulty.
