    Hey! I need some guidance here as I couldn't find any help by searching in google. So I am a new mac user (10.7.2) and I was wondering how to enable the tap-to-click instead of the current settings i have, which is pressing the trackpad. The trackpad preferences is entirely different from the previous versions and there is no checkbox to disable to pressing of trackpad.

    Thank you!

    settings > trackpad > point & click

    first checkbox is the one you are looking for

    That is the one which i had problems with ^

    When i check the box, i need to press down the trackpad to click something.
    When i uncheck the box, there is no way i can click anything.

    I just want a light tap on the trackpad to click... :(

    something sounds seriously b0rked then. i would try reinstalling lion. then if i still had problems i'd take it to a service center/apple store (might not hurt to try it with a magic trackpad or something)

    what hardware are you using?

    You will need to push down to uncheck/check the box but once it is checked the tap to click will be activated!

    Are you using a MacBook trackpad or a Magic Trackpad?

    It seems like bringing it to the apple store will save some trouble :p

    If not already done so! Try rebooting your MacBook and try again
