This will open the Mouse settings, where you can adjust various functions of the mouse. The layout will depend on the type of mouse you have connected to your computer. If you have a standard mouse connected, you’ll have a single screen for your mouse settings and you can assign functions to each of the mouse buttons.

Yet, if you have a Magic Mouse, you’ll have two screens when you open the Mouse menu in System Preferences: “Point & Click” and “More Gestures”.
