    Is there a way to right click without using a mouse on windows 7 while using bootcamp? I've tried everything and google search is not helping me in the least...

    It should work just fine. What mouse are you using? Did you install the apple drivers?

    If the Apple drivers are installed, you can use two-finger click like in OS X.

    Make sure you update to the latest trackpad driver using Apple Software Update (in Windows). It's still more finicky than OS X, but is improving.

    You can also use control panel to assign right click to a corner of the trackpad if you can't get it to work the way you want to.

    I use Windows XP under Boot Camp, not 7, but I enable it by going to Boot Camp preferences (through the system tray icon in XP)... are Boot Camp preferences accessible to you on Windows 7?

    Yes, it must be accessible to him on Windows 7.

    Make sure you have the latest Boot Camp version installed (which is 3.1) and play in the Trackpad settings a little bit in the Boot Camp Control Panel (right click the Boot Camp icon in the notification area and click Boot Camp Control Panel) and you should be good to go.
