Function keys

The computer uses function keys or key combinations to access some 
hardware and software controls, such as screen brightness and 
volume. The dedicated function keys each have a specific function. 

Touchpad

The built-in touchpad is a pointing device that senses movement on 
its surface. This means the cursor responds as you move your fingers 
across the surface of the touchpad.
