Touchpad

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

  • Move your finger across the touchpad (2) to move the cursor.
  • Press the left (1) and right (4) buttons located beneath the touchpad to perform selection and execution functions. These two buttons are similar to the left and right buttons on a mouse. Tapping on the touchpad is the same as clicking the left button.
  • Use the 4-way scroll (3) button (for selected models) or Acer BioProtect fingerprint reader (3) supporting Acer FingerNav 4-way control function (for selected models) to scroll up or down and move left or right a page. This button or fingerprint reader mimics your cursor pressing on the right scroll bar of Windows applications.

NOTE: When using the touchpad, keep it - and your fingers - dry and clean. The touchpad is sensitive to finger movement; hence, the lighter the touch, the better the response. Tapping too hard will not increase the touchpad's responsiveness.

NOTE: By default, vertical and horizontal scrolling is enabled on your touchpad. It can be disabled under Mouse settings in Windows Control Panel.
