The Satellite C855D's touchpad features multi-touch gesture support, providing an innovative alternative to conventional scrolling and buttons. The touchpad features an advanced, touch-sensitive interface solution that senses the position of a finger or fingers on its surface and recognises pinching, swiping, and rotating motions performed by simply moving your fingers.
The multi-touch touchpad recognises six different finger gestures, including:
- Pinch Gesture - two-finger pinch delivers zooming functionality in many Windows applications. The two-finger pinch zoom can be used to zoom in or out of photos, maps, or documents.
- One or Two Finger Scrolling - scrolling delivers functionality in Windows applications by using one or two separate fingers in a horizontal or vertical motion anywhere on the touchpad, with the scrolling rate controlled by your finger speed.
- Chiral Scrolling - whenever you wish to scroll just slide two fingers downwards (or upwards) and then you can move your fingers in clockwise or anticlockwise motion to continue scrolling.
- Momentum Motion - delivers smooth, fast, trackball-like cursor motion. A quick flick of one finger across the touchpad surface can move the cursor across the entire screen and is ideal for use with computer gaming applications.
- Rotation - rotate photos and other items in 90-degree increments by placing two separated fingers on the touchpad and moving them around in a continuous clockwise or counter-clockwise circular motion.
