    hi everyone, I've searched this issue across forums and quite a lot of people using different apple machines seem to have the same problem about the tap to click, so I would to bring this issue up again. My macbook pro 15 is about a month old, about 2-3 days ago, I realised that the tap to click stopped working occasionally, after a few tries, it did work again but it's very annoying, so I now switched back to the mouse click. The drawback of using mouse click is that it's very noisy if you are in library or at a quiet office. Is there anyone having the same problem? Is it a hardware (trackpad) issue or software (OSX) issue? Thanks!

    My daughters macbook always you to tap to click. From the first minute I owned my MBP, 2011, I tried to do this and guess what? Didn't do it. This is a MBP, not a MB & sings an dances. There must be a function in the settings that you can change? I have all the other functions on the trackpad that I'm aware of. Just not tap to click.

    Lol, go to settings, trackpad & its there. Highlight the tick box next to it and there you go! Thanks for your post. I wouldn't have bothered checking that up so we've solved our problems. Ta ta.

    Have you tried the following?

    System Preferences > Trackpad (under Hardware) > Tap to Click (under One Finger)

    As far as I remember, my MBP didn't come with this option as default. You have to enable it on your own.
