The first few things that I noticed after installing Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan was that three finger drag/swipe gesture was missing. Three finger drag is very useful and cool feature that you don’t find in Windows or Linux.

Other thing that I found which was not enabled by default was “tap”. So I had to press trackpad to perform a click. You can enable tap feature in Trackpad settings inside System Preferences, but three finger drag feature has been moved to “Accessibility” inside system preferences.

Enabling three finger drag gesture

Step 1: Go to “System Preferences”.

Step 2: In System Preferences, open “Accessibility”.

Step 3: Select “Mouse & Trackpad”.

Step 4: Click on “Trackpad Options”.

Step 5: In “Enable dragging”, select “three finger drag”.

Enabling “tap to click” feature

Step 1: Go to “System Preferences”

Step 2: Select “Trackpad”.
