[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> So, you got a new Mac Book or Mac Book Pro like this one. Well, one of the first things you might is that a Mac Track Pad can take some getting used to. I'm Veronica Belmont from CNet.com and on today's quick tip, I'm going to show you how to make your Mac's scroll like butter. First, let's go into the system preferences, then go to keyboard and mouse and then track pad. We want to select use two fingers to scroll, clicking, and tap track pad using two fingers for secondary click. Now, let's open up Firefox or any other web browser to give it a shot. So as you can see, when you want to scroll through a window, just use two fingers up and down on the pad. Using two fingers and tapping the pad will right-click and one finger will left click. Just like a normal mouse. Now if you want to change the settings even further, you can just go right back into system preferences and do it there. Make sure you look for more quick tips on CNet TV, I'm Veronica Belmont and I'll see you next time. ^M00:01:03 [ Music ]
