Touchpad Basics

Use the touchpad as follows:

  • 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.
  • Use the 4-way scroll (2) button to scroll a page up, down, left or right. This button mimics your cursor pressing on the vertical and horizontal scroll bards of Windows applications.

NOTE: A. Keep your fingers dry and clean when using the touchpad. Also keep the touchpad dry and clean. The touchpad is sensitive to your finger movements: the lighter your touch, the better the response. Tapping harder will not increase the touchpad's responsiveness. B. When using an external USB

mouse, you can press Fn+R to disable the touchpad.
