Skype
 
Can anyone tell me how to have Skype open automatically when I open the computer. I changed to SL and can't find the setting for that. Thanks.

There are two ways of doing it... the first, in System Preferences -> Accounts under "Login Items". Click the "+", navigate to where you have Skype installed (Applications, probably) and add it.

If you have Skype in the dock, you can right-click on it, select Options -> Open at Login.

Hope this helps.

To right-click on a MacBook Pro, click as normal while one finger remains on the touchpad. Or hold down Ctrl on the keyboard while clicking.

if i remember correctly, i who am not familiar with the trackpad had the same problem so i had to go into system preferences and click on the trackpad and under the ONE FINGER, I had to check Secondary Click for Bottom Right Corner

If i recall it was not set up that way until I did it myself

For some strange reason, Apple even with their most recent models seems to insist on still using their "single click" thinking as the default setting and the user must change the settings in the pref pane settings for mouse/keyboard and/or trackpad.

And rather than stating or showing the normal "control+click" or "right-click" that everyone else refers to for the option, Apple calls and provides the option for "Secondary".

And no explanation as to what "Secondary" actually refers to without doing some extra checking.

Gheese, you'd think they'd want to make some of their latest mice and trackpads setup with better default settings rather than leaving a user with a basic single-click mouse setting!!!

No kidding, all it does is confuse new users...
