How to Change the Settings of a Touchpad on a Toshiba Laptop

By Greyson Ferguson

The touchpad on your Toshiba laptop functions as the mouse for the computer. When you move your fingers over the touchpad, the cursor on the screen moves. The touchpad can also be used to scroll up and down a page and even select an object, just as a standard mouse. To ensure these options are available, you need to change the settings of the Toshiba touchpad.

Step 1

Click the "Start" button on the desktop and select "Control Panel." Wait for the Control Panel window to load.

Step 2

Double-click the hardware and sound icon, then select "Mouse" from the available settings. This brings up a window dealing only with the features of your touchpad.

Step 3

Select the settings you want (such as scrolling and selecting objects) by clicking the box next to the given options.

Step 4

Click "Apply," select "OK" and close the mouse window. The settings for the touchpad on your Toshiba laptop computer have now changed.
