Windows Phone 7 Finger Gestures

Part of the Windows Phone 7 For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Many of the functions of the Windows Phone 7 are right on the screen, so you need to get the hang of several finger motions:

  • Tap: This action is the most common one. You use it for typing, making selections, and launching applications. To tap, you just touch the screen quickly. It functions like the single click of a mouse on a PC.

  • Pan: To pan, you place your finger on a point on the screen and drag the image on the screen until you lift your finger. The pan motion allows you to move slowly around the virtual screen behind the physical screen.

  • Flick: Flicking moves you quickly around the virtual screen. To flick, you quickly brush your finger across the screen in the direction that you want the image to move.

  • Pinch/stretch: These motions are closely related and control the degree of zoom. To zoom out, you put two fingers on the screen and pinch the image. To zoom in, you put two fingers on the screen and stretch the image.
