I have been having issues with my trackpad lately and I believe that I have a broken trackpad sensor, but I thought I would ask here to see if it was something to do with the software instead of the hardware.
Lately my trackpad has been acting like tap to click is on even though I have disabled it. If I place my finger on the trackpad it believes that I am holding the button down even though I have not clicked. It also acts as if I am dragging windows if I place my pointer over the top bar of a program and hold my finger down, it allows me to drag the window.
Does this sound more like a worn out trackpad? Or is there somewhere in the software that has gone wrong.
Steps I have tried so far.
- Removing all launch agents and daemons and booting without any external drivers loading.
- Enabling and re-disabling tap to click in system preferences.
