Hi! Everyone, Not sure this is the right place so please excuse me!

I don't really know much about it but there is this feature that I use all the time: "Two fingers swipe left-right" with the cursor placed on the toolbar of any app to move it to the next desktop (if any).

The feature stop working on Catalina do you guys know anything about it?
Note that this also happened when I upgraded to Mojave but then like magic started to work again.

I found that too - it had got turned off in trackpad settings - you can probably just go in and turn it back on.
Hi! thank for the suggestions but I cannot find the setting for that in trackpad setting except the two finder swipe between pages. I enabled it but when swiping with two fingers with the mouse cursor on the status bar nothing happen.

This is annoying as it a feature that I use a lot.

Sorry, I misread your original post.

I've never used/discovered that gesture, can't find it listed anywhere, and it doesn't work for me in Mojave - can't see anywhere to turn it on. is it possible that it's a third-part app that enables it?

Maybe it a third parti app indeed but even I don't know what app and it a feature that I have been using since at least high Sierra and like I said after each upgrade the feature stop working and then like magic starting working again I never did anything special to enable it.

I usually restored all my users preferences so I don't have to reconfigure everything.

I have that working by enabling three finger dragging in trackpad settings in accessibility. Captura de ecrã 2019-07-28, às 07.22.39.png
