Now that you're in "Settings", click on the window labeled, "Ergonomics." 

Here you'll be presented with several options : 

  • Adjust your mouse or touchpad speed by bringing your cursor to the "Slow" or "Fast" option, depending on which speed you prefer,
  • Select your preferred cursor contrast, either black with a white outline or white with a black outline,
  • Customize the cursor's size by clicking on one of the "cursor size" icons. 

 Don't forget to restart your Ordissimo after changing your mouse settings.

3Description of your touchpad.

A. This tactile zone allows you to move the cursor around the screen. Placing two fingers on the touchpad allows you to scroll vertically, in the same way that you would with the scroll bar located to the right of the screen or with the mouse's scroll wheel.

B et C. These act as the mouse's right and left click buttons and both respond in the same way on an Ordissimo.

Simply press on the right or left area of the pad to simulate the click you desire.

Bluetooth mouse

This type of Bluetooth mouse doesn't come with a USB connector and is not compatible with your Ordissimo. 

On Ordissimo 13 inch Agathe models, it's possible to avoid inadvertently clicking by disabling your touchpad: click simultaneously on the "Function" and number "1" key. 


5Touch screens (tablets and all-in-ones).

A touch screen allows you to scroll down a page by sliding your finger from down to up :

1. Place your finger toward the bottom of the page you wish to scroll        2. Slide your finger from the bottom to the top of the screen, the page will follow your finger. Remove your finger from the screen to stop scrolling.

You  can repeat this gesture as many times as is necessary until you arrive at the bottom of the page.
attention If you slide your finger rapidly up the screen, the page will continue to scroll even once you lift up your finger, gradually slowing down on its own. 

Using a mouse or touchpad couldn't be simpler than with an Ordissimo.
