To be clear, see the enclosed image. The slider with the word Threshold
on it is an example.

Hovering the mouse pointer in the upper half, e.g. over the word
Threshold, changes the mouse pointer to an upwards pointing arrow;
clicking in the bar when the mouse pointer displays the upwards arrow
will set the amount directly: clicking on the left of the top-half of
the bar will set Threshold to 0, clicking on the right (over the 81.5 in
this example) sets it to around the maximum of 255, clicking in the
middle (e.g.just under the "g" of "sample merged") sets it to about
half, or 127. Dragging in this mode will drag the edge of the shaded bar

When the mouse pointer is in the lower half of the bar, e.g. in the
shaded area under the word Threshold, the mouse pointer is shown with a
cursor made of a horizontal arrow pointing both left and right. In this
mode, dragging in the bottom half of the area will select the number
(81.5 in the image I attached to this message) and the number will
change as you drag.

In addition, there are two small arrows to the right of the number, and
clicking on those will increase or reduce the number shown. But those
are not the arrows being discussed in this thread :-)

I hope this helps.
