    My daughter has a MacBook Pro, model 5,5 and doesn't know how to right click on it. I don't have it here and don't have a laptop so I am clueless. Can anyone help me so I can tell her how?

    Either hold down Control plus click, or put two fingers on the trackpad and click or tap (if set up) or look at System Preferences > Trackpad for settings.

    To expand on sims explanation...go to System Preferences->Trackpad->Point & Click->Secondary click and pick the option you want.

    I use Click or tap with two fingers. This right clicks by clicking the trackpad with two fingers.

    I set mine up in Pref's to use the bottom right hand corner of the trackpad for right click.

    I just click on the bottom right of the trackpad and that does the trick for me
