Customizing Your Trackpad Settings

If you use a Trackpad with your Mac you should check out all of the customization settings. Even if you don't change anything, there are probably gestures you aren't aware of that you could be using.

    I have the same settings but I can't get the Force Click and haptic feedback option to automatically open Quick look or open a photo. I must have something else set someplace but haven't found it yet.

    So I have looked on my M1 Macbook Air and I can't make the "Look Up and Data Detectors" work with the Force Click with One finger. It does work with the "Tap with three fingers". I'm wondering if yours works as you show on your macbook or is there a difference with using the Magic Keypad.

    Dan: Not sure. Could be a setting, or just the model you have.

    Hi Gary, I have a problem with the sensitivity of my external trackpad. If my fingers are on it and I accidentaly brush it lightly while looking at a page it highlights large areas.

    Margaret: Have you turned off Tap to Click? That's probably the only adjustment that would make a difference. Other than that it is just training yourself to not touch the Trackpad unless you want to move the pointer or click.
