Dell laptops feature a touch pad, which is used for navigation in place of an external mouse. This allows the user to scroll, click and select items on the display without extra devices. The Dell touch pad can be customised for sensitivity, scrolling and tapping speed. The touch pad can even be disabled when you want to use an external mouse. Customise the Dell touch pad to best suit your needs. Dell touch pad driver updates are available for download from their website.
