Touchpad Basics

The following teaches you how to use the touchpad:

Acer Laptop Reset Button

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 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.

Function

Left Button (1)

Right Button (4)

Main touchpad (2)

Center button (3)

Execute

Click twice quickly

Tap twice (at the same speed as double-clicking the mouse button)

Select

Click once

Tap once

Drag

Click and hold, then use finger on the touchpad to drag the cursor.

Tap twice (at the same speed as double-clicking a mouse button); rest your finger on the touchpad on the second tap and drag the cursor.

Access context menu

Click once

Scroll

Click and hold to move up/down/left/right.

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

Using the Keyboard

The keyboard has full-sized keys and an embedded keypad, separate cursor keys, two Windows keys and twelve function keys.

Lock Keys and embedded numeric keypad

The keyboard has three lock keys which you can toggle on and off.
