So far as I know, nothing intentional changed in the Windows
version of Axiom since it's first release that would affect
how the cursor and right button work.

In fact, (at least under Windows XP) these features are
controlled by Properties associated with the Windows shortcut
that is used to start Axiom. If you start from an icon on
the desktop, you can point at the icon with the mouse, right-
click, and then click Properties and then Options. Check the
box that says 'Quick Edit mode'.

If you start from the Start menu, you can also right-click
and choose Properties on the Axiom menu item.

If you already have the Axiom window open, you can also
change this setting by right-clicking on the top bar, click
Properties and put a checkmark beside 'Quck Edit mode'.
Windows will ask you if you want to make the changes permenant.

If there was in diference between the different versions
of Axiom for Windows, it might be due to the installer
program making random changes to these settings. But it was
not by design. It might also depend on the defaults for
your particular system and/or the specific version of Windows
that you are using.
