I realize that you would explain the names in a section up front. But maybe
"Click the Menu button" is less confusing.

When I see "Click the Menu button" I interpret this as place my pointer on the
"Menu" button on the screen and press the left-hand button on my mouse. Maybe
define the buttons as button 1 (left button) and button 2 (right button)?
