    To copy something like when you highlight something and wanna copy and paste it. I know you can Apple + C but how do you do it on the trackpad. Thanks in advance.

    Ctrl+Click or you can configure your mouse in system prefs so you can right click with 2 fingers on the touchpad.

    If you are on a Macbook or Macbook Pro, you simply need to go into system preferences>mouse, and then enable two finger right click.

    Two finger click, however I prefer using an external two button mouse, or the CTRL+Click.

    As mention by others for the trackpad.

    However if you don't want to use the trackpad any 2 button PC USB mouse will be fine, I use an MS Comfort Optical with my iMac.

    Depending on what you're trying to copy and paste (text? files?), you could just highlight and drag it to whereever.
