\015 I haven't used a touchpad before. I haven't had a laptop and I am confused about all of these icaons. I am an experienced PC user, but the laptop is a different animal. I am looking for the most basic information on a Toshiba keyboard. This is so basic it's embarrassing but I can't seem to find the information I need anywhere.\015

There are lot of people who can't get used to the mouse or (touch pad as it is called) on the lap top. I know, I am one. I hate the touch pad. Easiest solution is to use a regular mouse with a USB connection. Or you can buy a wireless mouse. If you carry around a lap top, it becomes a must that you have a laptop case. So, a wireless mouse is not going to be a hindrance. Best option would be a wireless one. Buy one. Put the CD that comes with it in the drive. set up the receiver (just install the program that came in the CD. That is it.) Put battery in the mouse, and press a button (a small button called connect) at the bottom of the mouse. And you are all ready to go as usual. This connect thing is a one time operation. You need to repeat it only when you change the battery. I guess you will get used to the key board in a weeks time. If the touch pad start acting up, you can disable the touch pad, so that only your mouse will be active. I am not sure what icons you are referring to, but if they are on the key board, most keys of the laptop have multiple functions. They are kind of colour coded.Look closely on the Fn key. you may notice that it is a little gray. You will also notice other markings that are gray on the keyboard. This means when that key is pressed in combination with Fn it has a new function. For example, Fn and F6 will decrease the brightness of the screen. Fn and F7 increases. Fn and F8 will turn your wireless on or off. There a few other functions like that too.

I've had the acer one for 2 weeks. While using it today, the single and double click functions of the touchpad stopped working.

There's nothing in the small manual that came with the computer to cover this situation. Thanks for the help. Carl
