Transferring windows using a Mac trackpad can be a daunting task. You have to click, hold and then drag. However, thanks to the known accessibility feature, you can quickly drag windows using a three-finger gesture. Below you will see how you can achieve this.
Once activated, three-finger transfer is quite easy to use. All you have to do is move the cursor to the line tools and gently press the trackpad with three fingers to "grab" the window. Then move all three fingers to move the window. Once the window has reached the desired location, simply lift a finger from the trackpad and you will leave the window. Use this method as often as you like.
Usually, you can activate the “tap-to-clickOn your Mac so you don't have to click on your trackpad all the time. However, this technique does not work when it comes to moving and replacing windows.
Three-finger transfer is easy to activate, but it takes a little more searching to adjust. First, click the Apple icon in the upper-left corner of your Mac screen and select “System Preferences".
In System Preferences, click “Accessibility".
In the sidebar, select “Pointer Control“. Then on the tab "Mouse & Trackpad", Click the button"Trackpad Options".
In the small window that appears, click the check mark next to “Enable Dragging”And then click on the drop-down menu and select“Three Finger Drag".
When done, click the “Button” buttonOK".
You have now activated the three-finger transfer function. Just move the cursor to the toolbar in any application and then drag with three fingers and the whole window will move.
If you do not like this feature, it is easy to turn it off. Just go back to Settings> Accessibility> Pointer Control> Mouse & Trackpad> Trackpad Options and uncheck “Enable dragging".
