Touchpad

The built-in touchpad is a PS/2-compatible pointing device that senses movement on its surface. This means the cursor responds as you move your finger on the surface of the touchpad. The central location on the palm rest provides optimum comfort and support.

Note: When using an external mouse, you can press Fn-F7 to disable the internal touchpad. If you want to use an external PS/2 mouse, first enable the touchpad, connect the external PS/2 mouse, then disable the touchpad if necessary.

  • Move your finger across the touchpad to move the cursor.
  • Press the left (1) and right (3) 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 touchpad produces similar results.

The touchpad also has scroll functions with the center button(s).
