    Ok, Got it...
    A right click is done by hitting the Apple Key next to the space bar correct?

    Next issue, a USb Thumb Stick Drive? I plugged one in, should Windows see it??

    Have you installed Parallels Tools? Once that is installed, most problems go away by themselves... ;)

    USB support is almost non-existant in the current version. You'd have better luck setting a Parallels share up to the drive. Its better in the beta and it'll probably work come next official update.

    There is a USB menu under actions or something, you can try and place with that.
