Question says it all.

I’m wondering this as I wish to do a reinstall of the OS on my Macbook Pro but 
can’t bring up the recovery boot process, I shut the computer down and then 
restart whilst holding down the option key, I hold this down for 15 seconds or 

Then I use the left arrow key to hopefully select the recovery utility or 
whatever its called and then press enter but unfortunately the Macbook boots up 
as it normally should.

Yes, I’ve tried hitting the right arrow after releasing the option key at 
start-up <smile>.

I take it the option key is the key next to command?
