Check the fn key on the bottom left. press and hold it while pressing the key that toggles the touch pad on and off. it is f8 on my sLaptop.
Might be f9 on others but you usually can see a print of the touch pad on it.

Two must know usability tips for Mac Laptop users


Here are two general usability tips that every Mac laptop owner must know about. How to simulate a right click with your trackpad, and scrolling through documents much like a scrollwheel. I have long assumed these were common knowledge, but I’ve heard enough complaints and wishes and had to demonstrate them to enough people to prove otherwise. So if you don’t know about these two trackpad features, then you do now, and once you start using them, it’s impossible to go without.
  • Right Click with Trackpad - Hold two fingers on the trackpad while you use the click button
  • Scroll through pages a la Scroll Wheel with trackpad - Place two fingers on the trackpad and move them up to scroll up, and down to scroll down. Works horizontally as well.
If these features aren’t working for you, they are probably disabled. Here is how to activate them:

Note: Several of our readers have pointed out that these tips are not compatible with some older PowerBook and iBook models. However, a program called iScroll2 enables the scrolling ability on these models. Get iScroll2 here. Thanks to all who pointed this out!
To activate these options (assuming they are turned off), go to Apple menu -> System Preferences. Navigate to the ‘Keyboard & Mouse’ preference pane under Hardware. Click the Trackpad tab. Under Trackpad gestures, be sure that “Use two fingers to scroll” and ‘Place two fingers on trackpad and click button for secondary click’ are checked, as shown in the screenshot below.

Touch pad scroll is not working


The reason why your cursor is jumping all over the screen is because you are touching it by mistake with your thumb or hand somehow. You can turn the sensitivity down ans set two finger scroll (and other options) for your touchpad - go to control panel > mouse > device settings >


If you do not have device settings, you need to download the official drivers and software to enable all features. The driver you have is probably the default win 8 generic one. Let me know the model number of your laptop and I can help.

The right position of the finger in the keyboard,on what particular letters do each finger were assigned.


I don't know exactly what you're asking here, but if you mean the home keys, where your fingers are supposed to rest for touch typing, then it's: ASDF for the left hand, and JKL: for the right. Index fingers on F&J, middle fingers on D&K, so on.

MS Office 2007 Outlook - open new email - super large font


Couple of suggestions:

1) try holding the ctrl key and rolling the mouse wheel down.
2) open the message in it's own window, click Other Actions, select zoom from the menu, choose desired zoom level and click ok
3) If using a previous version of MS word, change outlook from using word as your email editor to outlook as the email editor (TOOLS | OPTIONS | MAIL FORMAT tab)

Allocation of fingers on keys


HOME KEYS: Left index finger goes on the "F" (you should feel a small bump on the key), left middle finger --> "D", left third finger --> "S", and left pinkie finger --> "A". Right index finger --> "J" (feel bump), right middle finger --> "K", right third finger --> "L", and right pinkie finger --> ";" (semi-colon/colon key). Both thumbs rest on the space bar While the fingers basically stay on those keys, you stretch up & down for the keys closest to the "home keys" (example: use pinkie for "enter" key on the right; use left index finger for "R" and "T). It takes a little while to get used to this but it's the proper way to type, and it is efficient so once you get used to it, you'll be typing like a pro!!
