Windows keyboard shortcuts on a MacBook Pro



In a comment to my previous post there was a question from Shawn Oster regarding Windows keyboard shortcuts on the MacBook Pro. Here is a page from Apple’s website that pretty much explains the landscape when it comes to the keyboard. I decided to post it here because the URL is from Boot Camp Installation & Setup Guide which is a PDF file and not terribly accessible not to mention that that page didn’t come up searching Google. Btw, on page 20 of this PDF you’ll find the table below as the secret to right clicking which is to simply hold two fingers down on the touch pad and click the button.
