How do I use my Arc Touch Mouse?


The Arc Touch Mouse is a reliable wireless mouse that includes Microsoft Touch technology and BlueTrack Technology®. It can be used just about anywhere, even on a rough wood surface or carpet, up to 30 feet away from your computer.
Its innovative design allows for quick use and storage. Curve it to get started, and then smoothly glide your finger up or down the Touch scroll strip to use it. Flatten it to turn it off.
The Touch strip on the mouse responds precisely to the speed of your finger movement, using Haptic feedback (light vibration that signals scrolling speed) to scan through documents or web pages as quickly or slowly as you need, entirely by feel.

Use Touch

  • Slide your finger up or down the touch strip to scroll.
  • Flick your finger up or down to scroll quickly.
  • Tap at the top or bottom to page up or page down.
  • Double-tap in the middle to middle-click. (In Windows Internet Explorer, middle-click a link to open the link in a new tab.)
  • Double-tap and hold equals middle drag. (In Microsoft Word and Excel, middle drag to AutoScroll.)

Reassign mouse buttons

IntelliPoint software provides default commands for all of the mouse buttons. You can reassign some buttons to different commands or keyboard shortcuts to better fit your work style. You can also disable buttons you might press accidentally, such as the wheel button. For more information, see How do I reassign mouse buttons?

Store the transceiver

When you turn off the mouse, you can either keep the transceiver plugged into your computer’s USB port or store it in the storage space on the underside of the mouse.
