How to use a laptop?

Laptops or laptops are becoming an increasingly powerful portable alternative to smartphones and desktops for serious work on the go. Whether you’re transitioning to your first laptop or just sitting on an unfamiliar one, it can feel a little weird at first.Fear not, follow the steps below to get started with all your laptops and we’ll have you set up like a pro in no time.

If you use a laptop at home, find an outlet and plug in the charger.

Laptops run on battery power, which can drain quickly, especially if you use your laptop a lot. Unless you’re in a remote or exotic location that you absolutely can’t leave, it’s best to keep your laptop plugged in.

Place the bottom of the laptop on the table where you are sitting.

They’re called “laptops” because they fit on your lap, but that doesn’t mean it’s always the best or the right place. Try to find a comfortable angle for your wrist and hand – this may mean moving your laptop around until you find the best position for you.
Do not place your laptop on soft, damp, or rough surfaces that may block openings. Most laptops have vents on the sides and bottom that need to be opened for the laptop to work.

Lift the lid to open it until the screen is comfortable.

Most laptops have some kind of clip or lock that opens the screen.
If the laptop won’t turn on, don’t force it on! Instead, look for a latch. You don’t have to force the screen on.
Do not pull the cover back too far. An obtuse 45-degree angle is where the laptop should be opened. Pulling it further may damage or damage the lid or hinge mechanism.

Find the power button and turn it on.

On most laptops, the power button is behind the keyboard. The power button is usually marked with the generic “Power On” symbol, which is a circle with a line in the middle.

Use a laptop pointing device.

On most computers, this is a flat touchpad called a touchpad that lets you use your finger as a mouse. Just swipe your finger across the touchpad to move the cursor.
Many touchpads support multi-touch – using multiple fingers results in different user interface actions than using just one finger. Experiment by dragging one, two or three fingers on the laptop and try out different “gestures” or finger movements.
Lenovo laptops may use a small red joystick button called “Tracking Point” located between the “G” and “H” keys on the keyboard. Use it like a high-sensitivity joystick with just your finger.
Some older laptops may have trackballs. Rolling the ball on the trackball moves the mouse pointer.
