Dragging a window using trackpad

Recommended Posts

Is there anyway to do this without using the click button?

 

When I click and hold to drag a window it doesn't work unless I use the hard click on the bottom of the bottom of the trackpad. 

 

It's the same with highlighting text - it seems I have to use the hard click all the time for both these operations.

 

It's also the same when dragging applications from the applications folder to the dock.

Seeing this is being asked in the Mac forum, I suppose you have an Apple Trackpad? Just use three fingers to move a window / select text. Under config / main system, (or whatever it's called) look for the Trackpad options, there's a detailed guide on what you can do with it, followed by graphic examples on how to use your fingers to do multiple tasks.

 

/edit: need coffee... spelling errors and bad sentences.

Go to: System Preferences -> Trackpad

 

You can find a list of useful gestures the trackpad supports, such as the three finger drag.

I hate three finger drag. I went into accessibility settings and turned on dragging. It's solved now. Thanks.
