    Hi all,

    I have seen many of my MacBook friends swiping left or right using three fingers to move between Mission Control spaces. I cannot seem to do this using my iMac's Magic Trackpad.

    Can anyone help me set this up please? Currently, I swipe up using three fingers to open Mission Control and select the relevant space from there, but swiping between spaces would be very convenient.

    Thank you!

    Pretty sure you just swipe with 4 fingers to accomplish this.

    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    That's only to swipe between full screen apps, not Mission Control spaces.

    4 or 3 finger swipe left or right will move you from one space to the next depending on your settings. If you want the menu that pops up at the top and shows all the apps then you swipe up with 4 or 3 fingers depending on how you have it set in settings.

    I have attached a screenshot of my settings on to this reply. Please take a look at it.

    I can't seem to find an option to change settings regarding moving from one space to the next?

    In Setting goto Accessiblity, I setup my 3 finger to drag and drop which is very handy versus trying to keep pressure on your finger and the track pad while moving. If you goto this you cant have the other setting on 3 finger in your picture. Check it out on both setting and play around.

    Attached are the settings I am using between the 2.
