Using and Configuring the TouchPad (Windows 7 and Vista)

This document pertains to HP notebooks with Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
A TouchPad is a pointing device with a touch-sensitive surface located on the palm rest of the notebook. On some notebooks, the right side of the TouchPad will have a vertical line that indicates a scroll function. Additionally, the TouchPad is usually accompanied by two or more buttons that function as left and right buttons on a conventional mouse pointing device.

  1. TouchPad LED
  2. Touch-sensitive area
  3. Left-click button
  4. TouchPad on/off button
  5. Vertical scroll zone
  6. Right-click button
The TouchPad can be configured to interpret various gestures on its surface as different actions. For example, if the TouchPad has been configured to do so, a two-finger leftward swipe while browsing a website will take you to a previously viewed page; or, double-tapping the TouchPad while the cursor hovers over a text file will open the file in your default text editor.
You can adjust the sensitivity of the TouchPad, enable or disable the features and gestures, and change the functionality of the buttons. It usually takes a little practice to get comfortable with the TouchPad.
