    Well been using the mac for a few days so have a few questions for you mac guys and gals.
    Can you add the right click menu when you click on a file/ folder like it windows?
    Like to have copy to and move to with the plain copy.
    Anything like Samurizefor the mac?

    to gain additional options similar to right-clicking, hold down the control key as you click on a file. Your choices will include being able to copy the file (you can paste somewhere else by again control-clicking), or duplicate it in its current location. You can also always just click, drag, and drop. These options are also accessible from the edit drop-down menu in the finder

    you can enable right clicking on a mighty mouse - go into preferences, keyboard and mouse, select mouse on the tab, and set up the buttons as you wish.
