Iam writing this on my wifes new notebook PC.Did not think you needed a mouse but just used the small panel at the bottom to scroll but when I scroll to say a desktop icon nothing happens when I press enter.Am I doing it wrong never used one of these before.With a mouse you just double click the icon and in you go but how does it work with this panel what do you press enter does not work

I have two Laptops and a Netbook, always used a mouse. Daughter now uses one of the Laptops but get on okay with the touchpad. Not me I do not like them

My laptop has bluetooth so I bought a bluetooth mouse and it is excellent, no wires to get in my way.
