I want to be able to play a video on the Screenpad (Screenpad 2.0) while using it as a touchpad without having the Screenpad go dim. I believe this is available though "Extender Mode". On my UX434FLC, the F6 key only has three settings: 1) Screenpad mode, 2) Traditional touchpad mode, and 3) Touchpad disabled. Extender mode is not present.

I have managed to play video on the touchpad with the touchpad still usable as an input device twice so far: once from youtube and once from a CBS news website. While I've reproduced the sequence of actions that made it work the two times, I have not been able to reliably reproduce the result. Also, the "Movies and TV" app on the Screenpad functions as desired, but I don't want to play movies or TV, I want to play videos ebedded in websites and/or youtube.

On a possibly related note, I also do not get the "app switcher" icons (shown in appswitcher.jpg captured from your training video) when dragging a window on the main screen. I did get the icons the first time I used the PC, but never again. Also, the Screenpad calculator seems to be just the Windows calculator as opposed to a Screenpad optimized app as demonstrated in one of your videos (but that may have been for Screenpad 1.0). I mention this because I'm suspecting that a driver may not be correct, even though this is a brand-new system.

Thanks in advance for your help.


  • Hi @Jeffz1! Please find our answers below:

    1. On screenpad 2.0, extender mode is included in screenpad mode
    2. If you want to use both screen at the same time without dimming screenpad, we would suggest you to use an external mouse instead
    3. Screenpad calculator is for Screenpad 1.0. As for Screenpad 2.0 we indeed use the Windows calculator by default.

    Let me know if you need other help. Thanks!
