Use your Chromebook touchpad

You can use your Chromebook’s touchpad to move the pointer, right-click items on the screen, and more. Here’s how it works:

Move the pointer: Move your finger across the touchpad.
Click: Press the lower half of the touchpad. You can also tap the touchpad to click.
Right-click: Press the touchpad with two fingers, or hold down the Alt key while clicking with one finger.
Scroll: Place two fingers on the touchpad and move them up and down to scroll vertically, or 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.

See all open windows: Swipe down with three fingers.

Switch between tabs: If you have multiple browser tabs open, you can swipe left and right with three fingers to quickly move between tabs.

Drag and drop: With one finger, click the item you want to move. With a second finger, move the item. Release both fingers to drop the item at its new location.
