I am a PC user and have never used an ipod till today, but need to download some radio programmes onto work ipod for Mon, so have brought the ancient MacBook from the office home.
I am struggling.
When I want to download sth from the BBC site, it says to use the right-hand click. I don't have a right click. I can only get it to play the programme, not download it.
Any tips?

Press the Option key (CMD) should be to the left of the space bar when clicking.

On a Mac it should be the CTRL key, not cmd, and and a mouse click to do a right click.

However you could try clicking the right side of the click pad to see if that does the same thing.

Also Macs have various ways of doing right clicks other than that. Open up the System Preferences and look under "Keyboard & Mouse" depending on what you've got connected. Depending on what version of the OS you have you might see ways of just turning a right click or of using two finger clicks to do it.
