O Blender uses both the numeric keypad and the middle mouse button as part of the control, but notebook has neither of these two options, what now?

Then we navigate to the “Input” section, where we have the items we need to change.

Enabling emulation

Here we will enable the options “Emulate Numpad” for Blender to use the line of numbers on your notebook.
And also if you don't have a mouse, “Emulate 3 Button Mouse”, so by pressing Alt and the left trackpad button on your notebook, Blender will recognize it as the middle mouse button.
