1. A computing system capable of being used in facilitating outer user touches for performing tasks at the computing device, the computing system comprising:

  • a sensor cover having a sense surface having multiple holes with conductive leads; and

    the computing device having;

    a capacitive sensor coupled to the conductive leads of the multiple holes of the sense cover to detect a user touch to the sense surface of the sensor cover, wherein the sense surface is to cover at least a portion of the sensor;

    a processor; and

    storage capable of storing instructions to be executed by the processor, wherein the instructions when executed by the processor cause the processor to perform an action in response to the user touch.
