    In the new menu, we need to click "Mouse and touchpad"
    .
    There are several mouse options that will, for example, make the primary button left or right. We need the "Touchpad" section. In this case, we only have one option. It's to help prevent the cursor from accidentally moving while we type by changing the delay before clicks work. In this video, the option is set to "Medium delay". Depending on the touchpad, we may have other options. We set everything according to our preference.
