Your Surface Typing Cover has a touchpad with two buttons that you can use like a mouse. Use touchpad gestures to do common tasks. Learn how to adjust touchpad settings for things like changing scroll direction or preventing the touchpad from responding to accidental touches.
If your Surface device is equipped with a touchpad, it has right-click and left-click buttons that work like the buttons on a mouse.
Press the button firmly to click. A quick tap is interpreted as a touchpad gesture. To learn more about gestures, see Try the latest touchpad gestures.
To keep accidental touches from making the cursor jump while you’re typing, you can set the delay before taps work, turn taps off, or turn the touchpad off. See Change the touchpad settings to learn how.
Here are some of the gestures you can use on your touchpad. Except as noted, these gestures work with all Surface Typing Covers and the Surface Book keyboard.

|Tap, immediately tap and hold, then drag|| |
