Mouse Control Modifiers

Windows also supports “accelerator keys”. These keys you can press whilst performing actions with the mouse in order to access functions that are more advanced. The mouse control chart below shows some of these combinations. Be aware that in newer versions of Windows, the user can select whether the mouse requires a double-click to open documents (as in “classic Windows”), or a single-click (a newer option, designed to save on multiple mouse button clicking and emulate the behavior of a web browser). This can often be quite confusing, so by default the mouse will use the standard “classic Windows” double-click behavior.
