The easy way to enable the tap to click feature on the Mac

As a piece of innovative hardware, the trackpad on a Macbook is a serious piece of software, as it allows users to interact with various elements on the macOS graphical user interface (GUI). The support for multi-finger gestures elevates this piece of hardware to an entirely new level, not to mention the trackpad’s insanely large size. One of the first things you’ll notice is that you won’t be able to select an element on the screen by just touching on it with your finger on the trackpad. Considering that this is a gesture that is present on practically all laptops, it seems unusual that it was left off of a gadget with such a high price tag as the MacBook.

As it happens, Apple has not eliminated this gesture but has instead chosen to keep it turned off. In this article, we will demonstrate how to access and enable the touch to click function on your MacBook. If you are familiar with the tap to click feature on other devices and wish to use it on your MacBook, there is a very simple way to do so.
