    Mac question

    Ok this is probably really simple but...

    You know how on a pc you can right-click on an image in a web page and choose "View Image"? Is it possible to do this with a Mac?

    What is needed is to be able to see the name of the image itself (non-technical way - so no searching through markup!).

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey I don't have a clue, but this is a guess,
    try holding the "Command Key" and clicking -- doesn't that substitute for the right click? I heard that somelpace

    It's Control-Click for a right-click by default (unless they have a two-button mouse in which case you can right-click as normal). You'll get different options depending on the OS version, and which browser (Safari, Firefox, etc.)

    Meh. OS X has always supported right-clicking. With most of Apple's single-button mice, you can check a setting in System Preferences that will allow it to emulate a two-button mouse. Or you can grab a regular two-button mouse and plug it in. It all works. =D

    Yep, OSX does support right-clicking, I even used the function to open this page in a new tab . I'm using a Logitech mouse and right click works pratically the same as on XP.
