  • Touchpad Tips

    Use the touchpad to move the pointer and select items on the screen. Tap-to-click is enabled by default on your Chromebook and allows you to tap instead of clicking down on the touchpad. You can adjust how your touchpad works by going to Settings from the Chrome menu or Status area.

    1. To move the pointer, move your finger across the touchpad.

    2. To click, press down on the lower half of the touchpad.

    3. To right click, click the touchpad with two fingers.

    4. To scroll, place two fingers on the touchpad and move them up and down to scroll vertically, left and right to scroll horizontally.

    5. To swipe, quickly move two fingers left or right to go backward or forward on web pages or while using apps.

    6. To drag and drop, click the item you want to move with one finger. With a second finger, move the item. Release both fingers to drop the item at its new location.
