    Hey everyone...

    Just got a new macbook, and love it. One thing I can't figure out, on the trackpad, I can't right-click. I looked in preferences under keyboard/mouse, but don't see the option to change it. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Mac Newbie Question

    Hi, I'm new to the magical world of Mac also; just last April, I treated myself to the MBP as a birthday present after months of having contemplated making the switch. And months admiring the exquisite products of the Mac world; and above all, having been impressed by customer service a year earlier when my iPod died while still under guarantee and was immediately replaced without seeking refuge in contractual small print, or making excuses.

    As a switcher of recent vintage, this had been one of my questions also, as the right click function was one of few pretty useful functions on the Windows trackpad. The MacSwitcher Tips file (which I have posted onto my desktop) addresses this point and contains much else by way of useful advice. Hold down the control key and the trackpad simultaneously, and the right click menu appears. That's it.
