Hi Chris,

it got past me as I thought it was a feature. I'm used to downloading a 
new Squeak and finding out that the right and middle mouse button are 
swapped. (the right one brings up the halo)

If this has ever been different since 3.6 I didn't notice. As usual 
something just working slips by :-))

I right click on the window frame, VM Preferences, Mouse mapping, 3 
Button mouse. This swaps the mouse buttons.

I just checked with a all in one downloaded in april that this sets 
3ButtonMouse=1 in the ini file. Same with a 4.4 all in one I found in my 
download folder.

No reason to be embarrassed but I'd appreciate if this gets changed 
because on Windows the right mouse button usually brings up the context

And I'd like the updates of the image included and the name changed to 4.5.1
