Sep 7, 2014

I've been using MacBook Pro for over a year now and everything was just fine, but now, right click isn't working anymore. It is working on some sites actually, but not on every site (for example: [URL]) I just can't click the right click button on this site for example?

MacBook Air :: Trackpad Click/Button Not Always Working?

Jan 23, 2009

Just bought my MBA about a month ago. Recently it started doing something weird, mostly on the dock icons.

Sometimes when I go to click on an icon, it doesn't do anything, regardless of whether I am clicking, double clicking, or pushing the button below the trackpad. I end up having to move the cursor off of the icon and back on once or twice before it will let me click.

MacBook Air :: Trackpad Click Button Not Working Properly

Feb 26, 2009

basically i havent had my macbook air that long (few month, maybe few more) but all of a sudden the click button on the trackpad has almost became slightly annoying, that when you press it slightly it clicks in as if youve clicked but nothing has happened, and then i press a slight bit more (normal pressure for a click) and it works normal. its just really annoying and it seems to be getting worse at one end, and ideally id like it to stop.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Physical Click No Longer Working

Aug 22, 2009

About 3 days ago I noticed that right clicking on items was becoming increasingly difficult to do. The system would only register about 75% of my right clicks. Later that day the left click stopped working almost entirely. When I go to drag items, I either get no response or the pointer will grab the item briefly and then let it go after moving a very short distance. It does seem to work when I put a significant amount of pressure on the trackpad when clicking but I've seen some horror threads about trackpads cracking so I'm attempting to avoid applying too much pressure.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Stopped Working - Cannot Left Or Right Click

I have owned my MacBook Pro for about 3 years and just a couple of weeks ago the trackpad stopped working when I clicked on it. I can still use it by finger touch but I can no longer left or right click on it. I have been using a mouse for the past week so that I can right click.

MacBook :: Trackpad Tap To Click Stops Working / Re-enabling Starts To Work

Dec 27, 2010

I have an Unibody MacBook. I've experienced that under OS X "Tap to Click" function of the trackpad stops to work after "some" usage. Then I go to System Preferences, disable the feature, reenable it and it starts working again. OS X is updated and firmware updates are all installed.

MacBook Pro :: Sometimes Trackpad Will Not Click

Sep 16, 2010

Basically, the trackpad works just fine most of the time. However, sometimes (often enough to be aggravating), it will not click. A typical scenario is this: I'll have a web browser or something open and I will want to close the window. So I go to click the red button. The cursor is over the red button, and the button turns to an x, notifying that I am in the right spot. I will click the trackpad, and it will make the click sound, and nothing will happen. I'll try clicking several more times and nothing. The click just won't register no matter how many times I click. What I will have to do to make it work is stop clicking and take my hand off the trackpad for like 5-6 seconds, then click, and it will work. I do not have tap to click on. This is a 15" MBP 2.4ghz i5.

MacBook Air :: Does The Trackpad Have A Loud Click

Oct 22, 2010

For the new MacBook Air owners: how loud is the click on your trackpad?

I have a black MacBook which has the separate button (pre-glass trackpad). It's almost completely silent. On almost every unibody MacBook Pro though, the click is really loud and can sometimes even be heard in the next room.

How is this with the new Airs? Still loud or not really noticeable? I like to click instead of tap, but not if everyone can hear my neurotic clicking all day long

MacBook Air :: TrackPad Click Bar Fails

Mar 5, 2008

Yesterday I was using my MacBook Air. And I began to hear a loud click, when I clicked on the trackpad, click bar.It's a mechanical sound, it actually comes from the click bar, but only on the left side. I couldn't figure it out, but my son was at home, and he did.The left side of the click bar has raised up a tiny bit, maybe a 1/64th of an inch. The right side remains flush.Apparently something underneath the click bar has broken, or whatever, and allows the left side to float.

So when I click, the sound I hear comes from the raised end of the click bar, as it travels up and down.I'm going down to the Apple Store tomorrow morning to see a "Genius".What are my chances that they'll replace my MBA, rather than sending it to neverneverland?

MacBook Air :: MBA Trackpad Button - No Right Click?

Mar 7, 2010

I've been considering either a MacBook Pro 13" or a MacBook Air. I'll probably wait until the next MB Pro refresh (looks to be toward the end of March), and either pick up a new one, or possibly a refurb (of the earlier models) or close-out. Not sure yet.

I'm a long-time Mac user, on Macs exclusively since 1987, so no stranger to the platform.

I was checking out the MacBook Air (Apple Store and Best Buy), and noticed something about the trackpad.

It has the "button" at the bottom. But - try as I might - I could not configure it to do a "right click" (that is to say, press "towards the right" on the button to display a contextual menu).

I was able to go to the "trackpad" preference, and was able to set up the "two-finger touch" to invoke the "right click". But there seems to be no way to use the right end of the trackpad button itself to do this.

Is this correct, or did I miss something?

By comparison, it is easy to set up the MacBook Pro to do a right-click, even with its "buttonless" trackpad.

But this feature seems missing from the MB Air.

Is it?

MacBook :: Trackpad Gone Stiff - Can't Click

Jun 23, 2010

The trackpad on my 2009 Macbook has suddenly gone stiff, I can move the cursor around however the button is stuck down and can only highlight text and will not let me click. A small drop of water hit against the pad 5 minutes before this happened so i don't know if this has anything to do with it.

MacBook Pro :: Why Does It Right Click Instead Of Scrolling On Trackpad

Mar 27, 2012

Every now and then my trackpad acts up. When I scroll down/up (2 finger swipe down/up), it does a right click instead of scrolling. I bought this brand new at the apple store and its acting up within less than a month. I don't want to have an exchange if they'll give me a refurbished looking one.

MacBook Air :: Trackpad Tap To Click Unresponsive After Sleep?

Nov 20, 2010

I just got a 13" MacBook Air and I'm having an issue with it; googling around I've seen slightly similar problems, but nothing identical to what is going on with mine. I have the trackpad set to use the "tap to click" option in System Preferences and I've noticed that after I sleep the machine and wake it again, something gets bungled with it. The tap to click either stops responding entirely, requiring that I use the regular physical click instead, or it's highly, highly unresponsive. I've seen other reports of erratic clicking and the mouse moving on its own after sleeping the laptop.

Which thankfully mine isn't doing, but I haven't seen anybody reporting this slightly more demure issue. In any event, rebooting the machine fixes the problem completely until I sleep it next. I'm not 100% convinced that this is an Air issue, however, since I think it affected my 15" MacBook Pro to a lesser degree right after I upgraded that machine to 10.6.5, but I can't be entire certain of that since I no longer have that laptop and rarely used it without an external mouse in the first place.

MacBook Pro :: TrackPad Clicks But No Click Occurs?

Jun 20, 2009

I have early '09 uMBP17 and I'm experiencing one of the issues which apparently plagued first TrackPads: when I press a TrackPad it clicks, yet application doesn't register the mouse click. It happens 50/50. If I press harder/hold pressed a bit longer - it works more often. Still very very annoying.

I have seen that issue with late 2008 MBPs was resolved with trackpad firmware update (and my uMBP17 has the update already).

Has anybody experienced the issue on early 2009 MBPs? MBP17?

MacBook Pro :: Activate Tap To Click Functions On Trackpad?

May 22, 2010

All time PC user and finally picked up my first Mac, a brand new 2010 2.4 MBP! Just wondering, being used to normal tap to click functions from PC machines im wondering. Do most of you MBP users use tap to click or actually use the click on the trackpad? I've noticed using the click is more accurate as far as responses, but isn't as efficient/fast as using tap to click. Can I get suggestions from you MBP users on what you guys use? I'm far in between the two so I want to know which one I probably should use so I basically "learn" to use it over time. Also, noticed when I activate tap to click and use dragging, when I start to drag a window, and find the place I want to leave it. I'll raise my finger like 1mm in the air and it still registers my finger there and will still move it. It wont unlock my finger from the drag lock unless I lift it more than 3mm off the trackpad.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Stuck - How To Turn On Tap To Click

Apr 17, 2012

My trackpad is stuck and will not click at all.  

I can still make the cursor move and am able to get into System Preferences and go to the Trackpad settings, but I am unable to click the little checkbox that allows me to turn on "tap to click". If I had tap to click turned on I could use my computer as normal. 

FYI - I am traveling, I have no spare mouse/trackpad, there are no mac stores anywhere near by, the battery is brand new, I have no tools to remove the battery, and I need this fixed by tomorrow morning.

Now I have to click on each folder 5-6 times before it opens. I restarted my computer about 3 times yesterday and nothing worked.

MacBook Pro :: Water Spilled On Trackpad - Cannot Click / Scroll

Jan 11, 2011

I just spilled literally about four drops of water on my trackpad. However it was in the bottom left corner and some may have got through. When I rebooted (I know I panicked should not have turned it on 10 minutes later) It worked briefly and then I could not scroll or click. I have applecare, but I don't think it covers this.

For people to start getting use to not having a button with the track pad and only learn to use multitouch like how it is on iphone?I realize now that i turn on trackpad clicking that i just about NEVER use my think click button. Also the click button is so small i'm thinking they did it on purpose so it'll force us to use multitouch.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Not Register Every Click / Delete Key Broken

Nov 24, 2009

I've had my 13" unibody Macbook Pro for a few months now and I've loved it, until now. The delete key on my keyboard has almost completely broken. It doesn't pop like the other keys. It's muddy and now unresponsive, working only 1 out of 3 hits. Additionally, my track pad doesn't register every click now. It works at about the same rate, 1 out of 3 or so. Should I take it in to an Apple Store? The nearest one to me is about an hour and a half away.
