I’m a lifelong Windows user and I just purchased my first Mac — a 21.5″ iMac — 3.06/4GB/500GB. In this series I’ll list some tips and concepts that will be valuable to Windows users who are moving to the Mac and OS X for the first time.
So I’m sitting around on my new iMac with the magic mouse and magically I realize that there is no right-click. Right-clicking has become a bit of a religious part of my Windows workflow, so working without a right-click on the Mac platform — for me — is unnatural. So after much searching and digging, I figured out how to do it. Now I’m not saying that I don’t use keyboard shortcuts (try using Photoshop without keyboard shortcuts), but for cut and past? Sure CTRL-C and CTRL-V are great, but nothing beats the speed of the right-click.
The steps are show in the video below (it’s so easy to do that I can’t believe I had to dig to find it — or that Mac users dont’ at least try it).
