Lefty keyboard tricks

One thing that annoys me about the MacBook Pro’s keyboard is that the control and option keys are only on the left side of the space bar. I have my left hand on the trackpad, so control- or option- clicking takes a bit of finger gymnastics.

Earlier today, I was poking around the system preferences when I found this bit of much-needed magic in the Trackpad tab of the Keyboard & Mouse panel:

Place two fingers on trackpad and click button for secondary click

Woo hoo! Easy Mac right-clicking for lefties!

I know…it’s been around forever, I’m sure…but I’m a little late to the party.
