It is a quick double tap and leave your finger on the pad and drag, a quicker double tap than normal.

With most touchpads you hold down the left mouse button to select then move the cursor with the other hand by pressing a finger on the touchpad and dragging it. Be sure your touch pad is not disabled - usually a button near it with an indicator LED.

How do i scroll down using a touchpad? im used to the scroll wheel on my old mouse

it depends what brand product you are using. for most touchpads you just drag two fingers next to eachother on the touchpad and it will scroll up and down. for some others you just drag one finger along the edge of the touchpad

Touchpad does not work

Locate the function key (F1 to F12) that has the touchpad sign. This is often a rectangle with two smaller rectangles below it representing the touchpad and its two buttons.
Press FN + The touchpad button
If this doesn\'t work, then you need to do the following:

  • Navigate using the arrow keys to "Device Settings" or "Touchpad" or the similar option on your system and press "Enter."

  • Press the "Tab" key until the "Enable" option or a check box next to it highlights and then press "Enter." Press "Tab" again until you are highlighting "OK," and press "Enter." Your touchpad will be re-enabled.

    If no go, then update your touchpad driver by going to Computer (right click), Manage > device manager.

    Look for the touchpad driver and update. If you want to avoid these kinds of problem in the future, then install radarsync to automate the updating mechanism of your computer. It\'s automatic and you don\'t need to do anything.

    I hope this helps!

    No mouse, how do i do the things like highlight that i used to right click with

    Does the laptop have a touchpad (usually centered on the keyboard below the space bar) with two buttons above it? Then drag your finger across the selection to highlight it. Then click the right button.

    It may take some practice. I usually end up getting a finger to register as moving to a new point on the screen when I try to move up to the buttons.

    If you are still more comfortable with a mouse, get a USB corded or wireless mouse. Connect the mouse to a free port and use as you normally do. (Wireless mice can be a little tricky when the batteries run down or the receiver and mouse lose their connection.) If you have limited ports, a USB hub will usually be fine for connecting a mouse.

    I hope this helps.

    (Note: some older laptops need the touchpad disabled to avoid confusion. With Windows, Start > Control Panel > Hardware > Device Manager)

    My HP Pavilion Dv6 1030us the touchpad won't work.. It moves okay but It doesn't click! The buttons work fine, the only problem is with the touchpad and is driving me crazy! =/

    Try going to the control panel > mouse settings, Open the mouse settings and at the top of the page, there should be a tab for device settings. Click on this tab, It should bring up the touchpad device, highlight it and click on the settings button. When the settings window shows, scroll down to tapping, highlight tapping and make sure that the box is checked for tapping enabled. While you are in there go through all the other settings.

    It may be set to be over-sensitive to touch - Open Mouse settings in your control panel and look for touchpad sensitivity settings.

    If that doesnt help you probably have a sticky mouse button and the touchpad will need to be replaced.

    What brand and model laptop do you have?? Some are prone to sticky buttons.
