I am running mac OS 10.5.5 and Win XP using parallels.  You need to make sure the system preferences in the mac OS to allow two fingers for secondary click using the trackpad. This allows you to right click in Win XP.
I find using two fingers and clicking the button works more reliably in windows xp.  I usually have to try two finger tapping a few times.

To right click by tapping: Go to System Preferences and choose Keyboard & Mouse.  Select "Clicking" and "Tap trackpad using two fingers for secondary click". This allows you to tap the trackpad with two fingers side by side to get the "right click" effect.  You can also right click without tapping with this setting.

Go to System Preferences and choose Keyboard & Mouse.  Select "For secondary clicks, place two fingers on the trackpad then click the button". This allows you to right click by placing two fingers on the trackpad and then clicking the mouse button. 0acf97a.png

How to upgrade my macbook pro to Yosemite


Apple has made this feature free, and fairly simple. You should first make sure you have a backup of your hard drive on an external drive (easiest to complete with the TimeMachine feature of your Macbook Pro).

  • Open the App Store app and select the Featured or Top Charts tab. You can search for Yosemite, although Top Charts will usually list it as #1 in the Top Free apps.

  • Click on the Download button for Yosemite wherever it appears (either in the search list, or in Top Charts). Follow the prompts.

  • Depending on your connection speed and the specs of your macbook pro, the installation will take one to four hours.
    • Of course, you will have to have an Apple ID to download anything from the App Store.
    • If you don't have an Apple ID and don't know how to get one, please ask another question on FIXYA.

My MacBook Pro is unresponsive. I can move the cursor around, but when nothing happens when I tap the touch pad.


If this is a brand new macbook and you have not been familiar with them before....be aware that the whole touchpad is clickable by pressing it down. You can also go into your settings, under the mouse applet and choose to enable the tap to click rather than pressing the button.

Mousepad Problem


I assume we are discussing a trackpad.
It's possible that your have your "tap to click" feature enabled, and you are inadvertently tapping the trackpad while you are sliding your finger around. Visit Apple Menu / System Preferences / Trackpad to set your trackpad controls in a way more comfortable for you.
If this doesn't solve your problem, you will have to provide us with a more specific description of what actions you are performing, and what actions the Mac is performing.

Installed vista on macbook air and some drivers dont work


Ok, so you commited the sacriledge of installing Windows on a Mac. Enough complaining... The Mac hardware is really tight to the Mac software. Some features of the Mac aren't understood by Vista (and XP for the matter). I ask myself if the F12 (eject cd) is working under Vista?

Macbook wont work with freecom dvd lightscibe pro firewire


Hi:


I know exactly how you feel, since the lightscribe feature is great, but the lightscribe software is pc and not mac compatible, though the burner will work up til that point in the process on a mac.

I solved the problem by using an external dvd burner on a spare pc which will accommodate the installation software for lightscribe and burn and create and decorate the dvd.

I have yet to try a possible solution involving a Core Duo and combo Mac/PC Operating system since I still use an old iBook G4 to create videos but if your Macbook will accommodate both types of OS then you might try using the lightscribe software installation disk on your macbook in pc mode as a windows application.

Let me know if that works for you

Microphone on Apple Macbbok 13" 2.4 GHZ,2GB


Check to see if the microphone works on the macintosh side of the computer, chances are it won't, microphone usage on Macintosh computers has been hit and miss, sometimes the microphone needs a pre-amp or USB interface like a Griffin iMic adapter.

Macbook trackpad tapping


Check in system preferences under keyboard and mouse in the trackpad section. You'll probably find that the trackpad taping will become annoying when typing but you can also enable two finger scrolling there - which you're should probably have.

If you purchase a program called Boot Camp, VMWare Fusion, or Parallels you can load both XP and OSX to run dually or separate.
