I would like to set up my PC touchpad so that I can drag when touching with three fingers, like on a Mac.

I haven't found a way to do this.

Here is my device's info


You could use a substitute gesture: double-tap and drag (or tap and half):

  • Tap, immediately tap and hold, then drag
  • Moves an item or selects text
  • Like moving a mouse while you hold down the left button

I'm a macOS user, and can say that this gesture is a very good replacement for three-finger in Windows.

    Thank you for your answer. This is what I use, but it still is very different from macOS, and thus generates cognitive burden each time I would like to drag something – Vic Seedoubleyew Aug 17 '18 at 8:34
