Interesting article from the Microsoft Office Word Team's Blog
Recently while I was tutoring my Mom and Dad on Word 2007 I blurted out: "Just right-click." The remainder of this post is part explanation, part apology, and part justification.
Jonathan from the word team explains the right click philosphy
If you are like my Mom and Dad and do not design software for a living, chances are you never ask yourself questions like: "In what context is feature X most useful?" But, you most certainly have thoughts like "I need to do X to Y." when using software. My suggestion to my parents is my suggestion to you: right-click on Y and look for something like X. The intent here is not to be terse. It is to provide simple and helpful advice.
