    Just want to know if this is everyone's experience or mine alone. Scrolling with my type cover trackpad is not reliable in the browsers (ie or chrome) and I sometimes have to swipe a lot just to move down the page and it's certainly not smooth. Also I've tried using the down arrow to scroll but sometimes I press it in the browser and it just doesn't move the page down.

    I have no problem with trackpad scrolling, but the "down arrow" will only register when firmly stuck in the middle. It is maddening to go past the "d├ętente" of the key and not have anything happen. This could be a design limitation due to the width of the arrow key.

    Yeah, it's not that efficient.

    i have had no issues using the track pad to scroll. that said, if i have a lot of real estate to cover, i usually drag the scroll bar within the browser.

    I had the same trackpad problem when scrolling in a browser. I went to my MS store and they graciously exchanged my type cover.....problem gone. Attaching it for the 1st time triggered some updates that I don't recall seeing before, so maybe that was actually the problem.
