Hi everyone, new member to the forums with new MacBook and questions. On the new MacBooks, how do you do the equivalent of "right clicking" like you would on a laptop that would have 2 buttons by the trackpad?

Also, can anyone tell me how to look up what my connection speed currently is - I have looked around the AirPort area and cannot find anything there, and also looked at the network area for when I was connected via ethernet and cannot find its connection speed there either.

Thanks

MacBook late 2008, Mac OS X (10.5.5)

    right click is under system preferences > trackpad.

    I've been to that page and have made several changes, but have not found a right click option. Is it labeled something else?
    Thanks

    Hold the "control" key while clicking the trackpad button.

    Use two fingers and tap the trackpad for "right click".

    Your network connection speed can be found in the Network Utility in the Utilities folder.
