Please swap ctrl click for preferences

It cumbersome to press ctrl and click at the same time, especially if you are playing keyboards. Why can't it be only a simple press and preferences to be ctrl click accessible?

OK but irritating

I need a simple program like Tap Tempo to quickly analyze BPMs of songs I come across, but the program, although adequate, has some really annoying features. Every single time I launch the app it asks me if I want to "conflgure Tap Tempo to launch on login?" It won't take "no" for an answer. And then, I have to click through yet another screen on how to use the program. Every. Single. Time. For the 175th time, I've got it! If it would just shut up and work I would give it a higher rating.

I love this app because I'm used to needing my cell phone and my computer to put together a playlist for class. Now I just need the tapper on my menu bar and it reads so quickly and accurately!
