Chromebooks: Touchpad Tips

Use the touchpad to move the pointer and select items on the screen. Here are some gestures and actions supported by the touchpad:

Move the pointer: Simply move your finger across the touchpad.


 
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: Click the touchpad with two fingers.


 
Scroll: Place two fingers on the touchpad and move them up and down to scroll vertically, left and right to scroll horizontally.


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


 
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.
