Help with macbook trackpad

in macOS edited January 2014
I just upgraded my macbook tiger to leopard.

In tiger i could do the right click tap 2 fingers.

But I can not do the same in leopard.

The only option i am given is "For secondary clicks, place two fingers on the trackpad then click the button"

I know that I should have the option to just do a 2 finger tap.

Please help me.


Mac OS X version 10.5.2

I am up to date on all firmware and software updates.

I do not have any programs that would conflict with this either.

    Hi J4507,

    Have you selected all the right options in System Preferences -> Keyboard & Mouse -> Trackpad tab? For what you want the 'Tap trackpad using two fingers for secondary click' option should be ticked.

    It's also good to go through all the other options and see what you might want there as well.

    Hope this helps

    it works for me, so there must be something wrong in the perefences or if you still cannot find it go look on apple to see what other people are doing.
