    Hi Everyone,

    I just went from a PC to a Macbook, im anxiously waiting on its arrival. I will have tons of questions. I have been just looking around one. My very first question is how do i RIGHT CLICK? I know it sounds silly but i dont know how to do it with the mouse. My PC laptop trackpad was easier. Thanks for the help. Please do not spam me with negaive comments or if this is the wrong place.

    Thanks Kelly

    now i know once i have a Mac i cannot go to a PC

    Maybe I'm missing something but the clue is in the name, right click - press down on the ...right :D

    Now, if you try that and it doesn't work, I have a vague recall it might not be switched on by default in which case you go to the control panel equivalent "system preferences" (in the dock at the bottom of the screen) and set it up there.

    You can also hold ctrl and click the mouse, which I believe is what you had to do until Jobs relented on right click being available.
