Track pad / Touchpad

The track pad is divided into 3 sections

Mouse pointer area

mouse area of the trackpad

Left mouse click

mouse left click area of the trackpad

Right mouse click

mouse right click area of the trackpad

Mouse pointer area

The mouse pointer area of the track pad allows you to move the computer's mouse pointer across the screen. The motion and position of your fingers are being translated and transferred to their relative position on the computer screen.

The mouse pointer area has several features and capabilities you should be familiar with:

sensitivity

Sensitivity - The track pad is sensitive to the speed of your finger's motion and adjusts the proportions between the track pad and the screen accordingly. The faster you move your fingers, less distance would be needed to move the pointer a larger distance on the computer's screen.

extendibility

Extendibility – In case you move your fingers pass the boundaries of the track pad, the app dynamically extends the limits of the track pad area so the functionality being performed is maintained and remained active until you lift your fingers.
this is a Briskbit Gamepad unique feature.

Mouse left click – a single tap on the mouse pointer area simulates the functionality of the mouse left click.

double tap - double click

 

 

Mouse double left click – a double tap on the mouse pointer area simulates the functionality of the mouse double left click

Drag and Drop – drag-and-drop functionality is gained by double-tap-and-stay-down. Double tap without lifting the finger after the second tap selects the element (window, file, etc.) and then moving the finger while it is still down on the element, simulates the drag functionality and the object follows the finger's move. To release the element and stop dragging lift your finger.
