    Just got my dad's old macbook pro (5,3) and am loving it compared to my old one (2,2). However, as much as I thought I would love right click, I don't. My hand is used to resting pretty far to the right so that my thumb is generally landing on the "right click" area of the trackpad. I've gotten used to using control-click or apple-click (pending program) for right-click functions and am having trouble adjusting my hand position. Any way to disable this function so the trackpad is all "left click"?

    Thanks for your help,

    Look in System Preferences > Trackpad > Point & Click. You can turn off secondary click or set it to the left corner or to using two fingers.

    I see settings to change where secondary click is for one-finger tapping (which I've disabled in general), but not the mechanical click.

    Am I missing something or am I just going to have to try harder to learn?

    OK so I set it to bottom left corner (under one finger tap) and although the box isn't marked it seems to have worked the way I want it.

    The whole trackpad is a left click now. Not sure why this worked but it did.
