the package for A Space Navigator mouse . The left click brings up the TSX files . The right click does nothing .

That one is not the Package Manager :) If it brings up tsx files, then it is the Model side plug-in manager, for loading legacy tS6.6 plugins.

Swap to the workspace side and use the incredibly similar looking icon there. It will be in the workspace toolbars though, not in the Model side ones (Model specific toolbars are locked into the 3D window, while the workspace toolbars can float outside the 3D window, if you want a quick and easy way to tell the difference). A left click is all that is required, btw, not a right click, neither will do anything on right click (right click is used to open things such as options, and there are no options for these tools, so right click does nothing).

Hover your mouse over the icon, one will say "Package Manager" (the one you want), the other will say "Install new trueSpace extension" which is the legacy one, no good in this case.

Most things are simple when you know how, indeed - and that is what the people here on the forum are great at doing, making sure it becomes simple by explaining it! Be sure to jump in and ask any question on any topic, a very helpful place, very good at turning the complex into the simple :)

Happy to help!
