I can single tap my trackpad for a left click, and tap it with two fingers for a right click. Is there any way to bind a three finger tap to perform a middle click?

I tried MagicPrefs, but it's limited to the MagicMouse only, it doesn't work with the trackpad.

  • Not sure about 2011, but MagicPrefs now does work with a trackpad.

You can try BetterTouchTool. There might be a setting to do that. Maybe you'll even find another gesture to triple-click that you'll like better.


There is also another tool that I like more then BetterTouchTool, it's called MiddleClick and does exactly what you expect :-)

  • This is exactly what I was looking for to get middle-click paste working on a virtual machine. Thanks! Apr 30 '14 at 15:11
