There's an awful lot of people who never right click on anything, irrespective of which OS they use, how old they are, or how long they've been using personal computers. I've had alleged 'software engineers' say to me, "Oh, I never knew that".

And I have the suspicion that there are some 'old hands' who didn't know the old viewer could be de-cluttered at the flick of switch.

You and I just use the right click options. We always have.
I won't tell you the number of people I try and help (in person), that seem to have a right click phobia or use the Menu key (near the right Ctrl on std kybds. could be anyplace on the right for laptops ) on Windows keyboards

Yes, I'd find it very hard to believe that experienced users of mice do not know about the right click context menu, etc. I can imagine that some who go essentially mouseless for expediency as some high end MS Excel model builders, MS Word operators, data entry operators, programmers/software engineers, etc. are not so familiar, but in my experience they do know unless a very low level (such as in data entry). So I suspect the problems we are hearing of are perhaps from those who immediately throw their toys out of the cot when the first thing that comes to mind does not work, are not so experienced, or are having a moment.

Regarding theducks context menu key on Windows oriented keyboards I suspect many users don't know what it does (including those who use the 2 key combination instead), perhaps not even noticed it.

For those who rely heavily on mice I wonder which of the right or left click keys is used most, I find with Logitech mice it is the right key that fails to the dreaded Logitech "double click" fault first; makes me wonder.

I'm using Logitech mice and I've never had the left or right button have a problem.

I always right click if I see no other option and in this case, it worked. I got the options for the viewer. It was really simple.

{Off Topic}

My son seems to have no issues either. So is something to do with how much of a brute one is.

It has been a widespread issue, much on the internet about it including how to replace the microswitches (which I have done on occasions with better ones, but later boards are multilayer which gets too tricky). In recent years Logitech seem to have started using better, but more clicky sounding ones in their non-silent mice; I have just had one of them fail too though (right one, of course ).

You are correct. I hate contractions, often they never make it from my brain to the keyboard and always drastically change what I'm attempting say.
