Magic Trackpad doesn't want to single-click

My magic trackpad, maybe 6 months old, tracks just fine, swipes and scrolls just fine, does multi-finger gestures and two- and three-finger tapping totally normally. Just doesn’t do any normal clicking / tapping. Like almost every Apple product, it’s pretty frustrating to google for. Anyone have any ideas that aren’t turning a setting or device off and on?“magic+trackpad”+won’t+click

has lots of results…:face_with_hand_over_mouth:

Anyway, try removing the Magic Trackpad from the Mac’s Bluetooth System Preferences then power down the Trackpad for a few seconds then try re-pairing.
