Are you talking about in a Text document or on the desktop?

One thing though is in Windows the HotKeys are CTRL+C and CTRL+V. Well in OSX it's Command+C and Command+V.

If you want a Right Click menu on your Macbook you can either setup the trackpad for Two Finger Taping or use Control+LeftClick.

You need to set your Macbook up for the right click function. Go to /System Preferences/Trackpad (and Mouse) and select the secondary, right click function. Then you can right lick for the contextual menu from which you can select Copy and Paste.

By the way, Control Click on a one button mouse will work like a Right Click on a two button mouse.
