How to Double Click on MacBook: A Quick Guide

What Is the Equivalent of Double Click on a Mac? The equivalent of a double click on a Mac is the same as on a Windows PC. Simply double-tap on the Mac trackpad or mouse's button to double click. Windows adopted how the Mac uses double-clicking, so switching from Windows to Mac is relatively seamless.

Are you a new Mac user or someone who has recently switched over from Windows? If so, you may have noticed that you have to click down to open applications or links on your Mac trackpad. This can be frustrating, especially when you’re used to simply tapping to open items. The good news is that there’s a feature built into the Mac trackpad that allows you to tap to click. In this quick guide, we’ll show you how to enable this feature.

First, go to your system preferences and find the trackpad section. Click on it and look for the point-and-click feature. The first setting here says “tap to click.” Select this option to enable the tapping feature.

In addition to tap to click, there are many different gestures and features you can use with your trackpad. We recommend checking out the full tutorial on all the different scrolling and gesture features available.

Once you’ve selected tap to click, you can open applications and links on your Mac by simply tapping on them. No need to click down anymore! Of course, you can still click if you prefer.
