Mousercise 1.2: The Touchpad

A touchpad

This is a touchpad. It is a pointing device often found on a laptop computer as a substitute for a mouse.

A touchpad has a tactile surface and usually two buttons.

You will not be using the right button at all during these exercises.

Move your fingertip lightly in a circle across the surface of the touchpad and watch the cursor move in a circle on the screen.

You can complete all Mousercise lessons using a touchpad.

Move your finger so that the cursor is here. Now press the left

button once.
