Hi,

I have had my macbook pro for a day now and im getting used to it slowly. But a minute ago I opened up "Finder" and dragged HD Macintosh from underneath devices onto my desktop and it disappeared. Where has it gone? and how do i get it back?

Also quick question, how do I right click words/sentences to copy and paste etc like on MS?

Thanks for any help.

Tomsimo

Welcome to the forums!

For question 1 - with finder open, click the finder dropdown menu, select Preferences, in preferences select Sidebar - in there, you should see under Devices Hard Disks (which probably has a '-' in the little check box) click it until a check mark appears and you should have your HD back in the sidebar

For question 2 - with both fingers on the mouse trackpad, push down - that will be your right click. You can adjust right click (secondary click) options in the Preferences window under the trackpad.

Another thing to consider - if you've highlighted something, you can usually press Command+c top copy the highlighted text and Command+v to paste it where you want.
