    Should the right button on a Apple Notebook touch pad execute a drop-down menu like it does on anyother PC?

    I use Excel a lot and use the drop-down menus a lot, but I can't get them to work on my wife's Apple laptop?

    right button on a laptop? macs don't have right buttons, unless you have a generic mouse or program mighty mouse to work that way.

    what you can do... is hold ctrl and then click. works the same as right click

    Thanks.

    Just tried that and it worked. I now see that the button appears to be just one button...

    New to Apple, but like them...

    no problem at all. macs are very, very cool computadoras. the single button for clicking thing is really a very minor difference when you get used to it. enjoy
