Mouse Pad and Right and Left Buttons

I hit something on my Tablet and disabled the mouse pad as well as the right and left click options. My only way to navigate with the mouse is to connect through the USB port. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Mouse Pad and Right and Left Buttons

Great job, I myself prefer to use a extra mouse rather then the built in one, if you chose to do this it wont work right away but if you give it a moment to recognize the mouse it will then be functionable.

Shut off touchpad

Most pc's use a program named symnaptics touch pad. Go to the control panel, select the mouse tab then mouse properties and device settings (select disable). Here you can disable the touch pad. I would recommend you have a usb mouse up and running prior to doing this procedure (saves tons of headache).

When I make a selection using the mouse I used to be able to tap on the mouse pad for this Gateway Tablet PC, now I have to use the right-click selection.

If you go to the Gateway computers support site there may be updated drivers or software for your tablet pc that allows tweaking the mouse pad adjustments (with more refinement possible than was on your tablet originally).

It is also possible that the pad is experiencing wear / mechanical problems.

There's an icon for it in the control panel. It can be left on all the time. If you're using a mouse, it won't interfere.

How to use the pen

Using the pen is quite simple.
You extract it from its storage space and use it as a mouse, left clicking it as you would a mouse.
By pressing the tip of the pen on an area on desktop or on an application window and maintaining the pressure for a short while, you activate the context menus (the equivalent of a right click.)

On the Windows task bar (for Windows XP) there is a small icon near the start button that shows a pen pointing outside: that is the input panel. Click the icon with a mouse or your pen, and an input area opens. In that area you write with the pen (writing Pad) or enter letters and symbols one at a time (Character Pad) or use a virtual keyboard.

Under the red X that closes the input panel there is a small gear. C;ick the gear with the pen or a mouse to configure the settings.

Your pen may have an eraser at the rear end and/OR on the side. It is used to erase characters or whole sentences.

To actually record (write) what you enter with the pen you must have a text-editing application open and running.
Whenever you approach the pen to the screen near a text-area (search area of IE or other compatible applications) a small icon appears to be clicked to enter text. This happens is you select UNDOCK in the input panel configuration.

This should get you started with the pen. Try these steps, and if you have any other questions post them as comments to this thread and it will be my pleasure to answer them.
