1281. My Mac touchpad is not working right.

Connie asked: I have a MacBook, and something's wrong with the touchpad. Every time I touch it, it acts as if I had clicked with the mouse. It's driving me crazy. How can I fix this?

Sounds like Connie or someone using her MacBook fiddled with the settings not quite sure what they were doing.

In the settings for the Mac in the trackpad settings there’s an option labeled "point-and-click".  Once you go there, the first option is "tap to click".  And if that’s on and if you tap the trackpad it acts as if you clicked the mouse.  

I generally don’t like that feature so I turned it off on my Mac. And now Connie has too.

Just go to settings,  trackpad,  point-and-click and turn off the "tap to click" option.
