Magic Trackpad: About the Tap to Click feature

Learn more about the Tap to Click feature for Magic Trackpad.

With the Tap to Click feature on Magic Trackpad, a single tap or double-tap of your finger can act as a click or double-click, without having to physically press on the trackpad.

To enable this feature for your user account, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure your Magic Trackpad is paired, turned on, and connected to your Mac.
  2. Choose System Preferences from the Apple () menu.
  3. Choose Trackpad from the View menu.
  4. Under "One Finger", enable the option for Tap to Click.

Trackpad System Preferences

Even with the Tap to Click option enabled, you can still press to click your Magic Trackpad.

Additional Information

Tap to Click is a user specific preference, just like your Desktop picture or Screensaver. If you log out of your account, you won't be able to tap to click at the logout screen. In addition, when you start up to the Install DVD or Apple Hardware Test, the Tap to Click feature won't be available.
