Jeff,

There are a couple ways. One is to click and drag the pointer across, using your finger on the little pad. It's just the same as using a mouse only it's a two handed job. The other way is to keep clicking on the text - one double click will highlight one word and if you keep clicking it will then highlight the paragraph. Both ways take some getting used to.

You can also get a mouse that is laptop compatable which will plug into a USB port and you can even get wireless ones where a little unit plugs into a USB. These go through a lot of batteries but if you get rechargables it's not so bad. You can even get keyboards that will plug into a USB port if you don't always like using the smaller keyboard on the laptop.

Good luck!

Ann

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Thanks, Ann. I finally figured it out...I hold down the left click button then drag my finger on the mouse pad....i finally got it when I read its a two handed job.  Sheesh I felt pretty stupid for awhile.

But, Im really getting the hang of this laptop and Im loving the wireless remote!

Thanks, again.

LOL, don't feel bad, it took me a bit to figure that one out too. ;)
