This question already has an answer here:

I used to have a gesture where I could place 2 fingers on the top bar of an application/a file and use a third finger to drag it around. What gesture is this?

  • I think a one-finger click and drag will do, I don't think what you said is a real gesture. – owlswipe Jan 6 '17 at 1:51
  • @owlswipe I found it. Its not a "gesture" per se, but an accessibility option. Settings -> accessibility -> Mouse/trackpad -> trackpad options -> enable dragging -> 3 finger drag – TemporaryFix Jan 6 '17 at 1:53
  • @Programatic Ah ok. Nice. – owlswipe Jan 6 '17 at 2:01

Found it. It's not a gesture but an Accessibility feature. Navigate to the screenshot shown below (System Preferences > Accessibility > Mouse & Trackpad > Trackpad Options...) and you can enable dragging from there.

Switch it to three finger drag and your lost functionality will be restored.
