Master’s computer operation is sometimes too fast to follow with eyes. The feature is that it uses a lot of keyboards, and the combination of mouse and keys is also excellent. Let’s master it too. Not only the operation method but also the efficient memorization method will be taught three times in the “Reintroduction”. It is a guarantee that if you wear it, you will be able to make a fool of yourself with your colleagues at work.

A “touch pad” equipped on a laptop computer as a substitute for a mouse. Some people dislike this and use only the mouse. Is it easier to scroll and zoom in / out with the mouse? It’s a ridiculous misunderstanding, rude to the touchpad. If you only have simple operations such as clicking and dragging, the treasure will be lost. The true value of the touchpad is “touch gesture” (hereinafter referred to as “gesture”). It is in.
You can use two-finger gestures, which is almost the same as the touch panel.
Gesture is to call a specific function by “number and movement of fingers”, for example, swiping with two fingers to scroll the screen.Figure 1). You can do the same thing with a touch pad as you would with a touch panel on a smartphone or LCD display.
The touchpad is very close to the keyboard. While typing characters, reaching for a mouse far away each time to scroll or zoom in / out will reduce work efficiency. Use the touchpad positively.
However, be careful about the type of touchpad. Two-finger gestures can be used on most models, but three or more operations require multi-touch support (“Figure 2). Since it cannot be judged visually, try the gesture or check the correspondence with the “touch pad” on the “setting” screen. Multi-touch compatible ones are called “high precision touchpads” in Windows.
The “number and movement of fingers”, which is the point of gestures, is almost the same for both touchpads and touch panels (Figure 3). Tap, swipe, pinch out, pinch in, etc. are familiar operations on smartphones. Use up to 4 fingers on Windows 10 and 11. The functions executed by each may differ depending on the application (especially with three or more fingers), but scrolling with a two-finger swipe and enlargement / reduction by pinch-in / pinch-out are common.
[Note]For details on touch panel screen gestures that can be used in Windows 11, see the Microsoft support page (https://support.microsoft.com/ja-jp/windows/a9d28305-4818-a5df-4e2b-e5590f850741#WindowsVersion=Windows_11). You can check the details by searching for “Windows with touch gesture” in
