How can I disable clicking of touchpad. I did it before but it somehow started up again.

If you have a touchpad icon down in the bottom right hand corner on windows task bar click it and you should see a menu that comes up. In that menu you should see tap to click. click that to disable your clicking for the touchpad.

If the option is not there go control panel and click on hardware and sound, then devices and printer. under devices and printer you should see mouse or mouse properties. There should be a option in there to turn it off too.

Touchpad not funjctioning on Toshiba Satellite L40/45 laptop

You might have inadvertedly disabled the touchpad.

1. Press Fn + F9 to enable the touchpad.
This key combination acts as a switch, enabling or disabling the touchpad: press once to enable (if it is disabled), then press again to disable.

2. If the touchpad still doesn't respond, check the settings in the mouse control utility.
Click on the touchpad icon on the right side of the task bar if you see one or click Start button/Settings/Control Panel, select the Mouse icon and Press Enter.
Change the settings if necessary.
