Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook
I am unable to adjust my touch pad setting. Recently the Icon seemed to to disabled from my start up bar. I am seeking any advice on how to correct this problem.
Tips for a great answer:
Some laptops don't have dedicated buttons but you can use Function keys (like Fn + F5 on Dell computers) to toggle the state of your touch pad. In the case of HP laptops, you can hold the top-left corner of the touchpad for few seconds and it will disable the touch pad - repeat this to re-activate it.
New laptop computers either have a physical on/off button to easily disable the touch pad or there's an icon in the system tray that lets you manage the various settings of the touchpad. If you don't have that icon, you can go to Control Panel -> Mouse Properties -> Touch Pad to enable or disable the touchpad.
The touch pad can also be disabled through the device manager. Type devmgmt.msc in the Windows Run box to start the device manager, expand "Mice and other Pointing devices", right-click and disable the driver entry that says Touch pad or likewise.
Hope this information will help.
Your response is very much appreciated. Thank you for using Fixya...
