How To: Use the Touchpad

How to use the touchpad 

 

If you're using a Chromebook, use the touchpad to move the pointer and select items on the screen. Here are some gestures and actions supported by the touchpad:

move cursor Move the pointer: Simply move your finger across the touchpad. 
click Click: Just press down on the lower half of the touchpad. Since tap-to-click is enabled by default, you can quickly tap the touchpad to click.
right-click Right-click: Click the touchpad with two fingers. 
scroll Scroll: Place two fingers on the touchpad and move them up and down to scroll vertically, left and right to scroll horizontally.

If you have Australian scrolling enabled, move two fingers up to scroll down. (It works in the same way as say, your smartphone or tablet.) If you have multiple browser tabs open, you can also swipe left and right with three fingers to quickly move between tabs. 

Swipe: Quickly move two fingers left or right to go backward or forward on web pages or while using apps.
drag 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.
