The invention of the computer mouse was an important step in making computers easy to use for the average at-home user. The next step, the trackpad, allowed laptops to become a versatile, portable option for people.
The trackpad, or touchpad as it is sometimes called, is a touch-sensitive part of your MacBook you use to control the cursor and click on links and files to prompt an action from your laptop.
The trackpad on your MacBook can register many different multi-touch gestures to perform specific tasks, such as:
You can enable these in System Settings on your MacBook if they are not already turned on by default.
You might notice issues with your trackpad. Some common problems people experience with their MacBook trackpad are:
These are signs that you will need to replace the touchpad on your MacBook. Your MacBook’s trackpad can malfunction or stop working for many different reasons, such as:
You might feel that without a working trackpad, you can just plug in an external computer mouse and use that instead. But for many users, that is more of an added inconvenience because the whole reason they use a laptop is because it is easy to pack up and move.
Needing to remember to bring an extra mouse with you everywhere will probably begin to get tiresome for you very fast. But fixing the trackpad on your own is certainly not recommended.
And taking your MacBook to Apple’s Genius Bar is also a terrible option – they can often take weeks to even look at your problem, and then a few weeks on top of that to do the repair.

When your trackpad needs to be replaced you may notice any kind of problem, most users notice that the cursor jumps or moves without the touchpad being touched. Some users notice that the cursor starts acting odd and hard to use after a period of time, it doesn't click properly or it doesn't respond.
