Using the Stylus
Your iPAQ Pocket PC comes with a stylus that you should use to
tap or write on your screen.
Ä
CAUTION: To prevent damage to your iPAQ Pocket PC screen,
never use any device other than the stylus that comes with the
Pocket PC or an approved replacement to tap or write on the
screen. If you lose or break your stylus, you can order extras at
www.hp.com/products/pocketpc/options.
You can perform three basic actions using the stylus:
Tap—Lightly touch the screen to select or open an item. Lift the
stylus after you tap an item. Tapping is equivalent to clicking an
item with the mouse on your personal computer.
Drag—Place the point of the stylus on the screen and drag an
item across the screen without lifting the stylus until you have
completed the selection. Dragging is equivalent to dragging with
the left mouse button pressed on your personal computer.
Tap and hold—Hold the stylus pointer on an item for a short
time until a menu displays. Tapping and holding is equivalent to
right-clicking your personal computer mouse button. When you
tap and hold, a circle of red dots appears around the stylus to
indicate that the menu will soon pop up.

Installing the Battery
The Pocket PC has a small internal backup battery that allows
you to change the main battery without losing RAM data
(user-installed programs and data) as long as it is replaced
immediately.
It is recommended that you fully charge the iPAQ Pocket PC
battery before setting up the unit, and recharge regularly. Your
Pocket PC uses some power to maintain files in RAM and the
clock. While working at your desk, keep the Pocket PC and
Charger Adapter connected through the USB Synchronization
Cable. When you travel, it is recommended that you carry the AC
Adapter, Charger Adapter plug, or an optional spare battery with
you.
