Archived - Boot Camp: Difficulty using Multi-Touch trackpad in Windows
If you are using Microsoft Windows Vista or XP on your MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air with a Multi-Touch trackpad, you may have difficulty using the trackpad to select or drag items on the screen. You may notice any of the following:
- When using your thumb to click an item the cursor may move slightly and not select the intended item.
- The cursor may shake when you press or remove your finger from the trackpad.
- If you press down with your thumb, then use your finger to select or drag an item, the cursor may unexpectedly release.
Log into Windows on your Mac. Download the Multi-Touch Trackpad Update for Windows XP and Vista 1.0. Open the installer file and follow the onscreen instructions to install the update.
The Multi-Touch Trackpad Update for Windows is intended for use on Mac computers with a Multi-Touch trackpad. Installing the update on a Mac with no Multi-Touch trackpad will have no affect on functionality.
