How to Use the Touchpad

The touchpad integrated in your notebook is a pointing device that is compatible with standard mouse, allowing you to control the notebook by pointing the location of the cursor on the screen .

▶ Configure the Touchpad

You can customize the pointing device to meet your personal needs. For example, if you are a left-handed user, you may want to swap the functions of the two buttons.

In addition, you can change the size, shape, moving speed and other advanced features of the cursor on the screen.

To configure the touchpad, you can use the standard Microsoft or IBM PS/2 driver in your Windows operating system. The Mouse Properties in Control Panel allows you to change the configuration.

▶ Position and Move

Place your finger on the touchpad (usually using the forefinger), and the rectangular pad will act as a miniature duplicate of your display. When you move your fingertip across the pad, the cursor on the screen will move simultaneously to the same direction. When your finger reaches the edge of the pad, lift your finger and place it on a proper location of the touchpad to continue the movement.

How to Get Started

▶ Point and Click

When you have moved and placed the cursor over an icon, a menu item or a command that you want to execute, simply tap slightly on the touchpad or press the left button to select. This procedure, called as point and click is the basics of operating your notebook. Unlike the traditional pointing device such as the mouse, the whole touchpad can act as a left button, so that your each tap on the touchpad is equivalent to pressing the left button. Tapping twice more rapidly on the touchpad is to execute a double-click.

▶ Drag and Drop

You can move files or objects in your notebook by using drag-and-drop. To do so, place the cursor on the desired item and slightly tap twice on the touchpad, and then keep your fingertip in contact with the touchpad on the second tap. Now, you can drag the selected item to the desired location by moving your finger on the touchpad, and then lift your finger from the touchpad to drop the item into place. Alternately, you can press and hold the left button when you select an item, and then move your finger to the desired location; finally, release the left button to finish the drag-anddrop operation.
