Touchpad?
« on: December 03, 2015, 07:05:32 pm »
I have an HP Envy touchscreen laptop. When I go to complete a box around tabular data using the touchpad, it keeps asking me if I want to delete the box. It is especially a problem with identifying the row height.

Can anyone help here?
Thanks!

Sorry, my touchpad broke (from old age and overusage) before these sites came up, so I'm not sure.  (New mouse accessory now plugged in.)  I think I remember holding the little right-mouse-button down with my left hand while my right hand moved the cursor on the pad.  It was not easy.

If it has buttons next to the touchpad I'd try disabling the mouse-down functions for the pad itself and use the buttons.

Sigh - my non-Geek comes out again, NOTHING I have, phone or computer, uses a touch screen.
