If you use Gnome and want some action done, remember:
- A double-click does a default action, for example a movie is opened by Totem, a music-file is opened by Rhythmbox, etc.
- A right-click opens a dialog asking you what you would like to do with the item you clicked..
That’s simplicity and ease of Gnome and mouse magic.
