Use the touchpad as follows:

  • Slide your finger over the surface of the touchpad to control the movement of the cursor. Tap the touchpad to perform selection and execution functions.
  • Press the left (1) and right (3) buttons to perform selection and execution functions, just as you would use the buttons on a computer mouse.
  • Use the scroll key (2) to scroll through long documents and web pages. Press the top of the key to scroll up, and the bottom to scroll down.
