    One big thing thats throwing me off with Lion is you cant double tap a window and drag it around, instead they have this new three finger method. Is there a way to get it to work like before?

    Sure, you can use one finger. Just click instead of tap. (I abhor tap-to-click.)

    Its a hidden option in the accessibility options now. Stupid, I know.

    Sounds like I'm really going to enjoy getting used to a dumbed down OS. First thing I'm doing is going into System preferences and making everything the way it was on SL.

    i wouldn't say the 3-finger approach is any more or less dumb inherently, it's more a matter of preference. as to why they "hid" the preference for tap to drag separately from all the other trackpad stuff is beyond me.

    Thank you! This was killing me. It may be a little thing, but I use it many times per minute on my iMac. Now I'm back in business...
