Finally! A good use of the Force Touch trackpad

March 23, 2017

I have no idea how many people use Outlook for emails anymore, but my guess is that people still use them for work purposes.

If so (and you also own a new-ish MacBook with Force Touch trackpad), you’re in for a treat. Whilst I was in a meeting this afternoon I accidentally held my finger on the last “click” of the trackpad over a link. See below:

Outlook Force Touch trackpad

It opens a web view within a mini popup browser. Mind blown! As far as I know it’s a feature for Outlook only - I’ve tried in Chrome and it shows a boring dictionary thing.

It’s probably the best use of the force touch I’ve seen, I don’t know about you.
