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.
