How To Enable 'Three Finger Application Drag' in OS X 10.11 El Capitan

An easy way to drag applications around without clicking down on the trackpad is to enable "Three Finger Drag". The option for this setting has changed location in OS X 10.11 El Capitan. In OS X 10.10 Yosemite, this option was in "Trackpad", but now it's under "Accessibility". 

"Three Finger Drag" allows you to move open application windows around by simply hovering the mouse pointer over the top of an apps window, touching three fingers on the trackpad, and then moving around. Removing the need to physically click down on the trackpad. 

To enable "Three Finger Drag" in El Capitan, follow these steps:

1. Open "System Preferences".
2. Click "Accessibility".
3. Click "Mouse & Trackpad".
4. Click "Trackpad Options".
5. Check "Enable dragging", then click the drop down menu.
6. Select "three finger drag".
