Touchpad basics

The following items teach you how to use the touchpad:

  • Move your finger across the touchpad (2) to move the cursor.
  • Press the left (1) and right (4) buttons located on the edge of the touchpad to do selection and execution functions. These two buttons are similar to the left and right buttons on a mouse. Tapping on the touchapd is the same as clicking the left button.
  • Use the 4-wa scroll (3) button to scroll up or down and move left or right a page. This button mimics your cursor pressing on the right scroll bar of Windows applications.
