We’re deploying a MacBook for one of our users. Thanks (?) to Boot Camp, we’re able to install Windows XP and set this as the default OS. But there is one glaring problem with running Windows on a MacBook–no right button on the trackpad! Under OS X you can “right click” by holding down the control key while clicking the one-and-only mouse/touchpad button, but this doesn’t work while running Windows (at least under Boot Camp). I finally found a solution buried in the responses to a comment on Engadget — just touch the trackpad with two fingers and you can “right click” with the trackpad button. I agree with one of the replies: not the typical elegance I expect from Apple, but at least it works!
