Hello rondarling12,

 

Notebooks and the built-in touchpads only have the 2 buttons, they do not have a Middle Mouse Button "MMB". Unless you are using an external Mouse.

 

***EDIT***

 

As Kalt stated the touchpad itself acts as a clickable button aswell ... but it acts as a "Left Click" ... there is still no Middle Mouse Button "MMB"

If you tap or double-tap the touchpad, it will act as a click.

Is there any way to remap the touchpad buttons?

If tap and double tap works as left click, remaping the left clic button as MMB could be a solution, at least for me... But I don't know if that's posible.
