A couple of Mac basics for Windows switchers (since most people I know gatecrashing the Mac party are actually Windows users) -
One of the most frequently asked questions -
Where is the right click key on the trackpad?
Out of the box, your first experience with trying to find the right click key will be one of frustration, because the trackpad is just a smooth silver slab. fear not.
There’re a couple of ways to achieve the right click effect. The first, without needing any customization or digging through preferences, will be to hold the CONTROL button while clicking anywhere on the trackpad.
The second, is to go to system preferences (here’s a chance to practice some good spotlight skills - hit command + space to call up the spotlight and type in system preferences) and go to the trackpad option on the second row.There’re a couple of options you can play with there, but to enable right click like you would on a normal mouse/ trackpad, check “secondary click” and choose the option bottom right hand corner.
