for some reason on my windows boot camp partition it will not allow me to simply tap the touch pad and have it act as a click. it works perfectly in mac os just not windows like most laptops. is there a fix for this.

I don't think you can tap in windows. I tried to find out before and nothing... but I know with the bootcamp drivers you can right click with two fingers and click the button

Other laptops have had this feature with windows so it's just Apple not providing a driver which allows the tapping to be recognized in windows.
