SOURCE: I can not disable touchpad

Go to the Control Panel. Under the 'Hardware and Sound' options, click 'Mouse'immortal4u.png

Since you have a Dell laptop, you'll have a special tab called 'Dell touchpad' in the window that pops up. Click on the touchpad picture in the window.

In the new window that appears, click 'Device Select'

Click on the 'Disable' radio button to disable the touchpad completely. If you want to disable the touchpad of your Dell laptop only when an external device like a mouse is attached, check the last option that says 'Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when external USB mouse is present'


That's it. You've disabled your laptop's touchpad for good. If you don't find an option to manage your touchpad in Mouse settings, you have to install Synaptics drivers from here. Similar options can be found in other laptops as well.

Good luck ! if your problem is solved don't forget to rate

Have puchased. a acer wireless optical mouse how do I change over from the present mouse pad?

Theres nothing you need to do much, just plug in the wireless transmitter drive into the usb port, then download driver if one is required. Press the link button, usually a small button located under the wireless mouse.. then you should be good to go. You can disable the mouse pad, usually there is a button or a fn key to disable the mouse pad.

My mouse causes me to have to gets in the retype all the time cause it goes back up in my sentence or highlights my words blue

This is a very common issue with mouse pads build into laptops computer and can be avoid by moving your hands away from the mouse pad (meaning to open more) during the typing process. You might also want to try to disable temporarily the mouse pad by pressing the mouse button sometimes located on top of your mouse cell or pad or, by pressing FN key along with "F's" key(from F2 to F12). There should be a pad with a hand meaning to either disabling or enabling your mouse pointer.

Finally, try to use and external mouse.

Good Luck!!

My computer comes on opens windows all looks ok as soon as i touch the cursor, nothing responds,

Make sure that the track-pad (mouse-pad) is not disabled. There should be a button located above the track-pad that allows you to disable or enable the track-pad. If not, I would use a USB mouse and then go into the Control Panel, mouse and change settings there to enable the track-pad.

How do I disable touch pad when using a mouse? ASUS K50IJ Win7 64 bit

To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.

Alternatively, you can permanently disable the touchpad of your laptop by clicking the "Disable Device" in the Touch Pad setting. Advanced users can disable the touchpad from the BIOS setup [press F2 when the computer is booting to enter BIOS settings]

Unfortunately, there are no keyboard shortcuts to enable/disable Touchpad movement or tapping. You can however drag the Mouse icon from the control panel to your Quick launch bar for quick access.

If that sounds too much effort, you may consider adjusting the sensitivity of the touchpad. This can be accessed from the Touch Pad tab of our mouse properties. Choose a low setting.
