Well, I'll be dadgummed. My laptop has those two rectangles on the touchpad! Taxlady -- you're a genius! I use a wireless mouse, but that is incredibly useful information to have for a future Plan B.

No fair snickering, you IT people.

A horse-laugh might not be out of place considering how long I've been using this laptop.

Glad to be of help.

Back in the 1995, I got my first laptop computer. It didn't have a numeric keypad. Since I enter lots and lots of numbers for my work, I found one that I could attach to the RS232 port. The numeric keypad had a touchpad, since a mouse was usually what went on the RS232 port back then. I made sure there was a way to click with the touchpad, since I wouldn't be able to use my mouse while it was attached. That's why I know about the buttons for clicking when using the touchpad.
