    Hold Control, Function, Shift, and Page Up at the same time.

    also, to scroll up and down easier drag two fingers up and down the track pad.

    thought i'd share, not sure if everyone else already knew this.

    yeah i came on here to update, it seems whenever you get out of the browser you have to re-enable it. seems kinda stupid to me. it's frustrating.

    If we get enough complaints maybe we can get an update via Logitech?

    Thanks (not that I have been home to try it yet) I was bemoaning the fact that there was no scroll wheel and that scrolling was difficult

    Two Finger scrolling is hit or miss for me, I found it easier to scroll up and down with the arrow keys

    I found with scrolling you have to touch both fingers at the same time, that's why it feels hit or miss. I also found after you touch them both correctly you can move just one finger up and down.

    Nerdkill, tap to click should only need to be set again if you turned off the keyboard power switch. Interesting.

    That's what Logitech says, but that's not how it's actually working. Seems even switching between apps disables it. I'm in the habit of hitting the key combination almost every time I want to use the touchpad. Not nice. This needs a permanent setting.

    Yes, you think a company that makes Keyboards would know this is a needed function on GTV. It should be a toggle in the system settings.

    Once set it stays that way for me even across apps. Unless I turn it off manually with Ctrl+Shift+FN+Pg- (page down). Weird. Have you tried it again after a soft reboot with Ctrl+Alt+Del ?

    I was given this tip while talking on the phone to a customer service rep but also find it very frustrating that the function stops working everytime you leave the window in which it was enabled. Dear Logitech - update please!!!

    Thanks for the tip, this is very useful! Are there any other gestures that the trackpad can handle?

    DavidM, please make sure you have the latest update installed. It's at Home > Applications > Settings > About > System Updates. Go down to build number and tell us what it is.

    I am not having these troubles. Once tap-to-click is set, it stays across apps. It doesn't matter where I set it initially to.

    Mine seems to be working most of the time.
    But the scrolling on long pages was almost a deal breaker...
    It is just plain difficult to scroll fast either way.... Almost brought it back....
    It needs a setting for scrolling if you ask me.

    Just discovered that if you hold onto the selection button located just below the pad and click on the drag up and down section on the right side of the tv screen within the browser that you can scroll more fluidly and more quickly.

    You don't have to keep the cursor over that portion of the screen once you start to scroll. You must keep the button pressed and you can lift your other finger on and off the pad as much as you like. Just like using a laptop!
