I just bought a macbook air and installed windows and.......

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I realize there's no right click on a mac? lol what. Then to copy and paste its a bit difficult its position so weird, I thought the keyboard would be the same just like any other laptop. I didnt know there would be so many changes even though im using windows 7. Other then that the build quality and battery life is outstanding. I love how thin and how cold it is, its truly awesome. I'm wondering if there is anything useful I should know about having windows on a MAC. Something I must have? anyways looking to hear suggestions. I'm not sure if I want to return it... im going to try it out for a week and see.

You should install the drivers that Apple includes so that you're able to use right click and graphics drivers, internet, etc.

In Bootcamp on the Mac side, download the drivers and put them in a USB so that you can reboot and install them on your Windows side.

I used bootcamp. It automatically installed all the drivers I needed for windows. I'm saying there's no physical button to right click on the trackpad on my MBA.


Does anyone know if there is a mouse trackpad utility?

Did you try clicking on the touchpad itself? The MBA doesn't have real separate buttons for its touchpad.

Edit: I don't know if this is what you are looking for
