Whenever I disconnect a mouse (a generic cheapo Lenovo branded one) and reconnect it, I lose the ability to right click using the mouse. I have to resort to using CTRL+Left click. I have tried it with a different mouse (non Apple) and experienced the same problem. I also tried switching the secondary button to Left just to make sure it wasn't something specific with the L/R button. When I do that, the secondary click doesn't work even if it is the left button.
The only way I have solved this is to do a full restart. I suspect logging out and back in may fix this.
I think this is a driver issue somewhere. Any Ideas?
I am running Yosemite with all the latest patches. I've had this problem since Mavericks (my first OSX).
