MACBOOK JUNKIE’S ONE FINGER SECONDARY CLICK SETTING: OFF
The Trackpad One Finger Secondary Click setting allows you to perform a right-click action by literally pressing down on a corner of the trackpad. If you choose to enable this feature, you are given the choice of which bottom corner you want to use for the secondary click.
If you don’t like to press down on the trackpad and don’t want to be forced to click in one of the bottom corners, you will probably prefer to enable the Two Fingers Secondary Tap feature.
If you aren’t sure whether to choose One Finger Secondary Click or Two Finger Secondary Tap, go ahead and enable both so you can use either option whenever you like. I personally do not like pressing down on the trackpad and therefore do not use One Finger Secondary Click. It’s just not necessary and places too much strain on my hand.
You can see Apple’s video example of One Finger Secondary Click by hovering over the One Finger Secondary Click option in your Trackpad Preferences Pane.
