    When I boot into XP using Boot Camp my touch pad works fine for moving the mouse cursor and I can scroll using 2 fingers, but when I tap my finger to click, that doesn't work (I have to actually use the button) and I have no way to right click. Ideas?

    Did you also make ad load the Apple drivers CD? (see the Boot Camp .pdf)

    I don't believe Gestures are supported.

    If you enable the two-finger + click = right-click you should be set.

    So click = click
    Two fingers on pad + click = right click

    Yeah, but the 2 finger right click is what isn't working. Nor is the the 1 finger left click for that matter.

    If you are talking about "tapping one finger on the actual pad to click" that is not supported. Neither is the tapping two fingers.

    If you rest two fingers on the pad and click the actual button it will right-click.

    Ok, didn't realize I could rest 2 fingers on the pad to right click. Good. I was really getting worried without an external mouse there was no way.

    Yep. You can configure that for OSX as well so you don't have to change the way you think between the two systems as well.

    Configure touch pad by using Bootcamp control panel

    I know this thread is out of date.
    But for in case of other new mac user: you can configure your touch pad for click by touch in Bootcamp control panel. Just open your control panel, and look for Bootcamp item.
    You can configure your mac keyboard, touchpad, ...

    Ensure that you have installed bootcamp from your Mac OS installation disk to have the Bootcamp item available in control panel.

    Mine is Macbook with windows 7 sp1.
    I am using rEFI for multiboot on mac box.

    I was wondering if there was anyway to enable gestures (like the back and forward gestures)?
