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 system preference
  • 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.
