What is a touchpad?
Touchpad is also known as track pad and it is a pointing device. It consists of a specialized surface. The surface can translate the position and motion of the user’s finger to a relative position on the computer screen. Usually, a touchpad is used in portable computers to accomodate a pointer device within less space. You can use this device as a substitute of a mouse. The size of the touchpad may vary within 40 square centimeters. A touchpad larger than this size is rare. Apart from computers, touchpads are used in personal digital assistants and portable media players.

You can perform the rudimentary mouse functions just by gliding your finger on the surface, then press on the buttons or tap on the pad to click or trigger vertical scroll just sliding a finger along the touchpad’s right edge.
