Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab Touchscreen Operations
Part of the Samsung Galaxy Tabs For Dummies Cheat Sheet
It takes a certain finesse to work a touchscreen gizmo like a Galaxy Note or Galaxy Tab. Here are some of the common operations you can perform using your fingers on the tablet's touchscreen:
Touch: Touch an object, an icon, a control, a menu item, a doodad, and so on. This action may also be referred to as a tap or a press.
Double-tap: Touch the screen twice in the same location.
Long-press: Touch part of the screen and keep your finger held down.
Swipe: Touch your finger on one spot and then drag it to another spot. A swipe can be fast or slow. A swipe is also called a flick or a slide.
Pinch: A pinch involves two fingers, which start out separated on the screen and then are brought together.
Spread: The opposite of pinch. Start out with your fingers together on the screen and then spread them.
Rotate: Touch the screen with two fingers and twist them around a center point, like turning a combination lock on a safe.
