How can I set up middle click and right click on a trackpad? I would prefer something like:

  • middle click = click with two fingers,
  • right click = click with 3 fingers.

Currently, only the right click is enabled, using: System Preferences | Trackpad | Point & Click | Secondary Click = click with two fingers.

I am using MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2021), macOS Monterey Version 12.6.1.

    [I can't add this really as an answer, because I've no direct experience with it.] Mac has never natively supported middle-click, even on a three-button mouse. It has no native functionality supporting it either. You'll need a 3rd party utility - there are a few here - switchingtomac.com/tutorials/… & then some way of telling the Mac what you expect it to do in response.
