Control-clicking on my Mac stopped bringing up a menu. How do I fix this?

Do any of the other modifier keys bring up a menu? (Option+Click, Command+Click) – Darth Android Oct 5 '10 at 3:12
Do you not have a right mouse button or something? – Oct 5 '10 at 3:15

Try turning it off and on again ;)

Which OS version are you running? Does this link help?

My understanding is that the OP cannot bring up any menu with the control-click, not that the menu comes up and there's no Dropbox sub-menu. – fideli Oct 5 '10 at 10:10
True, but in the link they referenced a specific version of the OS and I was curious if the OP had just updated, etc. – M. Tibbits Oct 5 '10 at 12:20

Maybe control-click doesn't work for some apps. For example, I control click in chrome right now and nothing happens. But in Textmate it works.

control-click works in chrome, for me at least. – Vervious Oct 8 '10 at 5:43
