    I cannot get my right mouse click to work in Windows and it's driving me crazy! I've tried the shortcuts (ctrl + shift + click) and it still doesn't work. I'm dead in the water without being able to right click. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have a brand new MacBook with 2.16 processor and I'm running Windows XP. I am using the trackpad located in the MacBook.

    You need to enable the right mouse click on the Mac and then it will work in Windows, too.

    Systems Preferences/Keyboard and Mouse/Mouse. If your are right-handed, set up left mouse button as primary button and right mouse button as secondary button.
    Once you have done this (and if Parallels Tools is installed) it will work.
