Default New to Mac and Reaper Please Help

So I'm trying to get used to Reaper, I'm patiently and slowly going through the training videos on the Reaper website. Only problem is sometimes Kenny says to right click this or that which I though in mac world was "Control-Click" but that doesn't bring up some of the menus he's getting by right clicking???

At the moment I'm trying to name regions from a live recording off my M32 as song titles so they are easier to track throughout the recording. Kenny says to right click on the regions banner and he gets a edit menu. I "control click" and get nothing? I know this is stupid easy but I'm trying here, and getting frustrated...

Thanx in advance...

It's disabled by default.

Go to Preferences/Editing behavior/Mouse and check the box for "Control-click emulates right-click"

It's just written backwards. (Right-click emulates control-click of course.)
The idea is to free up the control key for even more modifiers. It's an odd default with all the right-click menus. I remember this setting well because this messed with me for a bit!
