I, personally, would drop the touchpad and use a mouse...lol...I hate those little touchpads.
Same here, can't stand having to use a finnicky, no good, downright bloody awful, tech from hell, PITA touchpad... TG for wireless, portable mices.
Yeah, I know, I spelt mice[s] wrong. So what! I'm in a Mr Jinx type 'mouse luvin' mood' and I can spell how I want.
