OK, I am sure everyone knows this already, but it was news to me.

When working, I am often right-clicking, scrolling to a menu option then left clicking to activate the option highlighted.

I just noticed that I can right-click to select the menu, scroll down – then right-click AGAIN to select it.


I tend to get RSI at times, and most of it is mouse generated, expecially when I am doing a lot of left clicking.

This should reduce my left-clicks by about 10% and help alleviate any RSI attacks.

For the record, I have tested this in MSie6, Firefox 2 and several MS Office applications – all running on Windows.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
