Today’s post addresses an issue relevant to owners of the Asus EEE TF101 Transformer tablet with the attachable keyboard dock with touchpad. As a previous post on multitouch using the touchpad illustrates, the default pointer is one or more circles that represent the position of each finger on the touchpad.
Although I personally prefer circle pointers and find them especially well-suited for multitouch, some users of the Transformer are driven mad by this style of pointer(s) and desire the single “traditional” arrow style mouse pointer of yesteryear.
If you desire to use the single arrow pointer, start by tapping or clicking Apps in the top right corner of the Home screen. Next open Settings, select Language & input category, then scroll the right section down to the Mouse and trackpad settings heading. Next, select Touchpad pointer style and finally Mouse cursor mode in the center dialog window.
Return once more to the Home screen and you will then see the traditional arrow style pointer move in concert with your touchpad finger.
