Right Click in Mac OS without requiring command key

Example use case: I'd like to use my mouse to right click on a file, such as Dockerfile, to pop-up the context menu.

I've tried to configure "Show Context Menu" in Keymap to do this with Add Mouse Shortcut.  However, when I right-click in the dialog box that captures the Mouse Shortcut, it always add the command key as a required modifier - even though I am not holding the command key.  This does not occur if you just left-click.

Help!

Strangely enough, on my TrackPad, if I two finger click, which is equivalent to the right click -- it works fine without the command key. And without me having to configure anything.

Thanks in advance!

Hello Tahitt,

Is it Apple's mouse? Could you please clarify what Rider's version you are using?

Based on my erroneous post in the intelliJ forum (where is Rider totally separate?) I think I've kind of figured it out:

From https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/4404852217618-Rider-on-MacOS-How-can-I-configure-right-click-in-the-Explorer-pane-to-not-require-holding-the-command-key?page=1#community_comment_4405085521810

I've done some investigation based on your comment and think that the problem is related to "SteerMouse."  I have that setup to pop-up Mission Control when the left and right mouse buttons are clicked simultaneously (I have a Logitech mouse).  This seemed to be interfering with the right clicks.  Only Rider is sensitive to this -- every other program I've used is not.  Visual Studio Code also is not.

Thanks for the help.  I've got an email into the makers of SteerMouse. Though I do wonder why Rider is bothered and no other program (that I own) is.
