How do I "right click" on a MacBook Pro?

As the title suggests, how do I "right click" on the MacBook Pro if I do not have an external mouse hooked up?

You will first need to go into the settings to turn the feature on. Then tap the trackpad with two fingers. This acts as the right click.

Thanks guys, that did it.
Needed to turn the "two fingers on the trackpad" and click button.

Thanks again.

Would it hurt them to put a freakin secondary button in?

Guess it would ruin the minimalist styling lol

Now hold down Control + ALT + Command (all at once) and press 8

Everything goes opposite. It's sick!
