    I just bought my mac book pro last month. I have never owned a mac before. Can someone tell me how you can copy and past using the keys? I know that there are allot of short cuts that you can use but I don't know them.

    For just about any shortcut you remember from the PC, replace the Ctrl key with Command. I.E. Command + C is copy, Command + V is paste, Command + A is select all, etc.

    What happens if I want to open something in a different window? IE one of the other topics, rather than having to go back and forth using the back button? Thanks for your quick response too!

    Open in a different window, like open a link in a browser in a different window? If that's what you mean, hold down Command and click the link. It will open it in a new window/tab depending on your settings
