    Noob here with first post to MR. Just joined the Mac family 3 months ago. I've been an avid reader of MR on a daily basis since I made the switch, and first wanted to say thanks for all you guys do in here.

    1st Question: I've set my MBP to drag with a double tap. However, when I release the trackpad it takes a full second (it seems) before I can go about doing something else. In other words, I'll double tap a window...drag it to where I want, and then have to wait a second or so before I can move the mouse pointer again or else it will continue to move the window.

    Is there a setting somewhere to minimize the time necessary between the double tap lock and when my finger is removed from the trackpad?

    Hope this question makes sense...

    Thanks in advance

    After you finished dragging the window to its destination, tap again to lose the window. For more settings, take a look at System Preferences > Trackpad.
