    Hello Macrumors!

    Has anyone been experiencing the same issue I have?
    I seem to click with 2 fingers, down, on the trackpad. I tend to
    'right' click a lot, and I cannot seem to successfully do it all the time. ( Or most of the time.)

    Most of the time, I believe I click down with 2 fingers, but instead of opening the "right-click menu," I always "drag" the link. Any suggestions from much more experience macbook users?
    Thank You!!:apple:

    I have mine set up differently....for a right click, I hold Control while I click trackpad. It's much easier, at least for me.

    why dont you use tap to click settings and just tap two fingers for right click?

    its ALOT quieter too.

    Here is how I have mine set.

    That's what I do as well. Works perfectly.

    I tried that for a while but I was always right-clicking when I didn't intend to.
