HP Jornada 820 Series Handheld PC - Adjusting the Touch Pad
The HP Jornada touch pad replaces the mouse as a navigation and pointing device. The touch pad buttons act as the primary and secondary (left and right) mouse buttons. In addition, the touch pad can be used as a drawing tablet for use with Microsoft (R) InkWriter.
The HP Jornada touch pad control panel enables you to set options commonly associated with the mouse or other pointing device. It also lets you set special features unique to the HP Jornada touch pad, such as settings that remind you to take a short break.
Prolonged use of the touch pad can put stress on your fingers, hands, and wrists. To reduce the risk of fatigue or stress from using the touch pad, the HP Jornada touch pad surface is very sensitive and requires only slight pressure from your fingertips.
To Open the HP Touch Pad Control Panel
On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to HP Utilities, and then click HP touch pad.
Frequent breaks can significantly decrease fingertip and wrist fatigue. Use the Short Breaks tab of the touch pad Properties dialog box to remind yourself to take a short break from the keyboard after a set number of minutes or a set number of clicks on the touch pad. Select one or more of these options, and then select the interval from the drop-down lists. You can set the reminder to play a sound or display a custom message to signal that it is time for a break.
Tap and Drag Behavior
Use the Touch pad tab to set properties of the HP Jornada touch pad. For example, you can set it so that you can simply tap the touch pad rather than click the primary button.
Touch Pad Options
When you are typing, you may find it comfortable to rest your wrists on the edge of the keyboard. You can automatically disable the touch pad when you type, so you can rest your wrists on the touch pad without inadvertently moving the cursor or triggering a click.
To Disable the Touch Pad
On the Touch pad tab of the HP touch pad Properties dialog box, select Disable touch pad when typing.
Adjust the slider to set the interval after which the touch pad is reactivated.
