    Hey,

    I installed Windows 7 using bootcamp on my rMBP. I installed the drivers that came with bootcamp.

    I would like to know:
    1) How to enable right mouse click
    2) Is it possible to Tap To Click With One Finger gesture under Windows (instead of fully pressing the trackpad)

    Thanks.

    There should be an bootcamp settings icon on your taskbar of which you can configure the settings you would like to configure. Yes! A noob was able to help another noob! hehe

    just go to the start menu and type bootcamp, it will come up. You can change those settings there.

    Windows 8 isn't supported yet.

    As for Windows 7, if you installed everything properly after Windows startup there should be a small grey square in the taskbar which lets you change various settings, including setup for your Apple mouse/trackpad.

    If it isn't there then you haven't installed the software.

    Did you install using a USB drive? If so the software should be located on there.

    Windows 8 might not be supported but I've got a boot camp partition with the release candidate on it and it works fine.

    I know...just reporting what I am seeing.

    ----------

    The software is there....just the boot camp control panel doesn't come up yet. Agree that this will probalbly be addressed when window8 goes live.
