    Does anyone know if there is a page with all the trackpad shortcuts.

    I know two finger scroll, but I think there is some way to use two fingers to right-cklick, and something elde to zoom.

    Any guidance would be helpful.

    Thanks

    Holy Crap! That is awesome.


    I am currently imagining how quickly this prank can be deployed on other people's MacBooks! Tomorrow should be fun.

    Hold two fingers on trackpad and click bar for right click.

    You can also tap with two fingers.

    - if you have the "tap-click" enabled. I was fed up with my pointer being laggy so I "un-enabled" it. The two-finger click bar is for those not using the tap-click.

    The only thing I'm jealous of is the two-finger click. That's all.

    And you're all amazed by the control-scroll? It's been around for a while...

    You can add this functionality to iBook G4s and aluminum powerbooks using iScroll2. Using it, I could control-click by having two fingers on the trackpad and hitting the click button.

    Slide three fingers backward is going back one page
    three fingers forward is going forward one page
    two finger scroll
    two fingers in opposite, diagnol directions to zoom (like with an itouch/iphone)
    four fingers up - move all widows to outer edges
    four fingers down - move all windows to original position

    those are all i can think of right now... I though apple used to have a page on it, but I cant find, I'll keep looking and post it if i discover it's location.

    Also, moving four fingers down while the windows are in their normal position will open Expose, moving four fingers back up moves back to original positions.

    If you go into System Preferences, and then Trackpad, it shows you all the controls, plus videos of how to do it :)
