in the mouse and keyboard settings make sure that the right click button on your mouse is set to secondary click.

Also, make sure you have two-fingered tapping set for right click. With this option turned on, you can right-click simply by tapping anywhere on the touchpad with two fingers. Once you do this, you'll be amazed how naturally it comes.

Also note that you can scroll by holding two fingers to the trackpad if you have the option enabled.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
