Tap to click

Try going to System Preferences/Trackpad/Point & Click and checking the box for Tap to click. It saves wear and tear on your clicking finger. Try it and see. It’s a one-finger tap– remember that.

Pressing down on the trackpad, the old-fashioned way, will still work, even with Tap to Click checked, so you get it both ways.

This works for laptop users and also for those using Apple’s Magic Trackpad.
