Touchpad Basics

The following teaches you how to use the touchpad:

  • 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 (top/bottom/left/and right) to scroll a page up, down, left or right. This button mimics your cursor pressing on the vertical and horizontal scroll bars of Windows applications.
