    The "delete" key next to the "end" erases to the right.

    The "delete" key next to the "+/-" erases to the left.

    Not sure if the Macbook is different to the MacBook Pro, but I don't have an "End" button. I have to press "fn" and "Delete" to delete to the right.

    Is there a way without pressing "fn"?

    OOPS - sorry I did not read your original post correctly. Not sure about the MacBooks as own an iMac.

    Though I did a quick Google for "macbook keyboard delete key"

    You might find some answers there.

    mouse right click, is it not common knowedge that you go to system preferences select mouse keyboard button then selectmouse buttons settings change the right side to secondary not primary then all you need to do is press on the right side of the mouse for right click. This might be common knowledge but never see it in anybodys help tips

    The most common recommendation is Kingston RAM. It's available very cheaply from just about anywhere and has an excellent reputation. 2Gb sticks are very cheap at the moment, with 1Gb costing extremely little. 3 or 4Gb will make for an excellent machine, especially if you start going photo or video crazy. Apple's iMacs, as well as their notebooks, take notebook DDR2 RAM. A simple option is to use StaticIce to find the best price.
    the new macbooks use DDR3

    Hi all, well I'm new to the forum and new to Mac's, I'll be picking up a MBP this week .
    Any way I thought I'd checkout this sticky... seemed like a logical place to start but I've found none of the links in the OP are going to the correct page. E.G. "Ive just switched to Mac, what's the best program to..." links to "Powermac G5 CPU usage question".

    Any chance of these being fixed up for any other new users?
    I've had a look around and found most of the answers I was looking for, but this may be useful to others and hey that's what it is for right.

    About a month ago, the owner of MacTalk broke the forums, so you'll find that all the links that were posted prior to that are borked.

    Hopefully, the links in important threads like this will get fixed soon.

    Our apologies, the forum links were recently broken.

    The entire website is being re-constructed over the coming weeks, and all of this information will be re-edited and re-posted in a new area.

    For now, assume this article as non-functional

    Default Another right-click

    If you have a newer (like, Intel) MacBook, with the "multi-touch" trackpad, you can set it to right-click with a 2-finger tap on the trackpad.

    You can also set it to scroll with 2-finger drag.

    You do the settings in System Preferences>Mouse & Keyboard.

    The forums had to be re-built some months ago after an epic screw-up. Because of the rebuild, all the thread IDs changed, and so did internal links. I've had it in mind to rebuild the first post for a while now, but I haven't been around. I've fixed a few of the links, including the long-lost link to iPirate's keyboard shortcuts post.
