MacBook Air Trackpad Settings


By default, your MacBook Air trackpad is set to scroll in a “natural” direction (scroll up to move the page up and scroll down to move the page down). Some people prefer to scroll the opposite direction.

Open System Preferences.

Click on Trackpad.

In the Scroll & Zoom tab, uncheck Scroll Direction: Natural

Secondary Click (or a right-click)

The default settings is a two-finger click, but this can be changed to the bottom right or bottom left corner from the Point & Click tab.

Tap to Click

This setting allows you to tap to select rather than click. You can also change the firmness of the tap/click and the tracking speed.
