This bar is like a rocker switch: you can press the left end for a left click, or the right end for a right click, but you can't physically press both ends down at the same time due to the rocker design. This design is increasingly common these days, probably thanks to the aesthetic influence of Apple's laptops.

Well that's amazingly stupid.  I have used applications that expected
you to use both bottons (or all 3 actually) at the same time.  It was
very useful to have 7 functions on a 3 button mouse.
