Have been using Magic Mouse for three years but in the past few months, a weird thing happens. All of a sudden, when I left-click, the contextual menu pops up as if I'm right-clicking.


There's almost no way to get rid of it. Anything I do, the contextual menu pops up, regardless of whether or not I'm left- or right-clicking.


I shut off the mouse for a minute and sometimes that helps.


In most cases, I abandon the thing and use my wired mouse.


Sometimes, I've changed the mouse batteries even though they should power at 50%.


There's no real consistency, though. A solution works one time and doesn't another time.


Is the circuitry in the mouse going bad?
