Hey, as mentioned in the title I have a bit of a problem. First of all I want to excuse my poor English (I'm Danish), I'll try to explain my issues as precisely as I can. I have a white MacBook from 2010. The problems are the following: I can't right click, I can't highlight text (or copy and paste), I can't make the icons and files on my desktop bigger - and I can't move them around. If I open a wordfile I can't make it bigger or move it around either. I can however open the icons and files perfectly fine. I tried calling the apple support line, but they could not help me for free, and I sort of can't afford to pay for it right now. The support woman told me that she thought it was something that could be fixed. I hope this is the right place to ask this question.

Also I hope this is a hardware question? :S

If you connect a mouse and use that do you still have the same problems?

Umm I haven't tried that actually (I don't have a separate mouse), but I'll ask my boyfriend if I can borrow his. I hadn't thought of this solution really. Thanks!

Well, I just discovered a new problem - I can't install his mouse, because I can't move the installation into the programs-map (which it wants me to do). But thanks for the tip anyway!

A USB mouse needs no installation. It may come with software but the basic point and click will just work.
