    just got a new MBP and have questions. instead of creating a bunch of threads i thought i would just open one thread and ask questions as they arise. How do I delete bookmarks that are already on safari?

    aslo, what do i do to get the equivalent of a right mouse click?

    For the right click, press both of your fingers down on the trackpad. You may have to go to system prefs, keyboard and mouse, then click trackpad first.

    In safari, click the small book button in the leftmost side of the bookmarks toolbar... when the BMakr organizer opens, you can drag/drop/delete them!

    You have the control+click option or you can enable the two finger click option in your 'Trackpad Preferences' from System Preferences! After this you can simply place two fingers on the Trackpad (like when you scroll) and click for a right click!

    right click (not for trackpad): System preferences, keyboard and mouse, mouse. there should be a way for you to add secondary click (right click).
    right click (for trackpad): System preferences, keyboard and mouse, trackpad. Enable two finger right clicking

    to delete a bookmark, open safari and open the bookmarks (menu bar, bookmarks, show all). you can just select a bookmark and hit the delete key.

    Bookmarks on the menu bar -> show all bookmarks
    Delete from there

    Right click = 2 fingers on the pad and click
    (you may need to set this up in system preferences->keyboard/mouse->trackpad)

    Edit: too slow again! Damn, it's 3:30 a.m. here! Good job!
