Current functionality allows the user to double click one of the password entries to store the password in the clipboard. How about triple clicking that entry to store the user name. This (in most situations) removes the need for a right-click.

    Sorry - this isn't possible. Windows only notifies an application of a single click or a double click - no more than that. We can't add the two either to get a triple-click.

    I am not sure the users would be happy even if we could! Most users can handle single/double clicks and even set up mouse buttons to do double clicks. Counting a larger number of clicks will not be intuitive.

    Another developer has suggested the use of the middle mouse button where available.

    Potentially, we could add the ability for the user to configure up to 3 additional mouse actions:
    Middle mouse button single-click, Middle mouse button double-click and Right mouse button double-click.

    The user already can configure the Left mouse button single-click and the Right mouse button single-click is reserved for the Context menu.

    Microsoft's user experience guide indicates that Shift-double-click would be a better alternative, that is:
    click: selects item
    double-click: performs default action (copy password to clipboard)
    shift+double-click: perform secondary default action (copy username to clipboard)
