This has nothing to do with copying files as such. The "press two
buttons" trick is used when you have a two-button mouse and want to
simulate pressing a (non-existent) middle button, which is a
conventional way to paste text from the X copy buffer.
Check your X settings, specifically the mouse. You don't say what
desktop you're using so instructions will vary.
