In my Chrome Browser, whenever i "Force Click" (hard clicked by one finger) upon a Word, the dictionary lookup Pop-up is always popping out.

Like this:

enter image description here

I have already DISABLED the "Force Click" setting in the Trackpad Settings:

And then already Restarted the Chrome. And also did (related or not) the:

$ killall SystemUIServer

But this annoying pop-up (Dictionary Lookup) is still there. I'm sure it is not a Chrome Extension.

What should i do to totally get rid of that, please?

Thank you all!

  • For clarity, "Look up & data detectors" and the killall SystemUIServer is unnecessary/irrelevant - just uncheck "Force Click and haptic feedback" (see @Scott answer below) Commented Sep 4, 2018 at 23:01

Switch 'Look up & Data Detectors' to 3-finger tap. You can then re-enable it. This avoids disabling force touch entirely.

  • what about iMac?

  • This was helpful, thanks. It doesn't seem like Force Click is all that helpful though, seems like it only applies to quick preview in finder and some media controls which I haven't seen. Commented Nov 7, 2022 at 22:01

You have to also uncheck "Force Click and haptic feedback" at the bottom of the Trackpad Point & Click settings.
