Client MacOS: why doesnt right click select the file?

#1 Post by acos21 » 2020-01-03 23:56

On Windows Filezilla:
- I scroll through a filelist (either local or remote), put my mousepointer on it and right click: i am then presented with the actions (upload, edit, open and so on) for the specific file.

On MacOS however:
- i need to first left-click a file to select it, only then the rightmouse menu provides the action for the file.

To make things more illogical: if i rightclick on a file the usual "upload, open edit" menu is presented BUT if the file is not selected they apply to another file (one that happens to be selected and maybe not be even visible on my screen..).

Why is this? Something MacOS specific? Can't imagine this is done by design. Or am i doing something wrong?

Happy NY everybody.
