    Since the MBP trackpad only has one button, and control clicking doesn't work, how DO you right click on a laptop? Or do I have to settle using a USB mouse?:confused:

    control click (ctrl)

    Control click doesn't seem to work on the Windows side.

    Right Clicking

    The easiest way without getting a pc mouse is to single click on an icon and on your keyboard press and hold "shift" + "F10" (Note: the menu may appear in the upper left corner of your screen).

    Let me know if it works.

    Ohh my god!
    Thats too much to just right click, is there a way to change that and have it shift+click?
    thank you in advance

    id be happy to see apple start using hte right click. Its the one thing that bothers me about macs

    Here's a windows app that enables ctrl+click for right clicking:


    Just place a shortcut to it in the start menu under Startup.

    Hopefully someone (Probably Apple) will create a nicer trackpad driver that includes ctrl+click and scrolling.

    I know that in RDC (Remote Desktop Connection) a right click is done w/ Ctrl+Shift+Click. This probably doesn't work natively in Windows but have you tried it to be sure?

    Nope. It doesnt work.
