I'm starting this thread because there must be very useful "tips" on using the right/middle click mouse buttons and mouse wheel to enhance your computing experience running Puppy. So this is a call-out thread asking you to share your tips with the rest of the puppy community. I'll get the ball rolling with one which is useful to me: I have JWM set to use only one fixed sized window, so I add my file locations to the favourites button for quick navigation. Now when I left-click on an item in favourites, the new location appears in the same window. However right-clicking an item will spawn a new overlapping window. Share your thoughts please........

JWM select all/invert button: Left-clicking will select all items. If items are already selected, right-clicking the button will invert selection

Select files in a rox window by ctrl+Left click.

Then Middle click in any text field to paste file names with their full path.

Works in terminal, browser etc..

Helps sometimes to post file list on forum.

Pointing the mouse cursor at an application launch button in the tray and spinning the mouse wheel will open multiple instances of that application. The more aggressive the spin, the more instances.

Nice one. Also useful when writing scripts.
