How to disable touchpad?

I would like to disable my touchpad since I just bought a mouse. I can't find the way to do this. There is no option in the control panel when clicked on the mouse icon. What the heck?

    I have an HP Pavilion dv4000 with a touch pad, but do not see any button just above the touch pad. i want to disable it because as i type, my plam brushes the pad and jumps the cursor to a different location. Gets really annoying at times.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, I have the same issue with my HP Pavillion dv4000. I do not have a "smalll button just above the touchpad". The spacebar is just above the touchpad.

Are there any other ideas on how to disable the touchpad?

Thanks

Hello

Please perform the following steps to disable touchpad

For any touchpad
1. Click Start.
2. Click Control Panel.
3. Click Mouse.
3. Click Device Settings tab in the Mouse Properties window.
5. Click the Disable button.
6. Click Apply and then OK.

If the device settings are not there you need to check the a.net in msconfig for alps touchpad file and reinstall the drivers.
If your notebook has Synaptic Touchpad then there will be "synt" instead of "a.net" .

This should resolve the issue.

Thanks
Regards

Wondering pointer


Try downloading the Touchpad drivers, then you will have that option.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.



You can disable the touchpad once you have the touchpad driver installed. Most times when it installs the touchpad will be at the bottom right near the time. you should also be able to get to it in the Control Panel.

Want to disable the touchpad. When I type i accidenlty hit it and it makes the cursor move.


First, make sure the device drivers for the touchpad are installed.
Once the drivers are installed, open Control Panel --> Mouse --> Dell Touchpad.
Click on the large screen with an arrow, which will open the touchpad configuration window.
Click on 'Device Select', and right at the bottom is a box which you can tick to 'Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when a USB mouse is connected.
As soon as you tick that option, a message will pop up in the taskbar, confirming your selection.

You can make doubly sure however, by also choosing 'Disable' under the Touchpad' heading in the same window.

Be sure to click 'Apply' once you've made your selections.

Toshiba u505 cursor jumps to other line when typing n


Hi.
Based on the information you have provided, it seems that the issue might be due to the Touchpad "Tapping feature".
This issue usually occurs when the Touchpad Tapping feature is enabled.
You may disable this option by following the steps mentioned below:
1) Click on the "Windows" logo icon. 2) Then, type "mouse" in the search option. 3) Click on the Mouse options which should be mentioned on the search list. 4) Once you have the Mouse options window open, click on the "Device Settings" tab. 5) Then, click on the "Settings" tab. 6) This will open the "Touchpad settings" window. 7) In this window, check for the "Tapping" option. 8) Once you have found that, disable that. 9) By doing this, you will disable the Touchpad tapping feature.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to contact for further information and assistance.

I can not disable touchpad of INSPIRON 1545 of DELL Computers There is no option for disabling touch pad in the MOUSE option of Control Panel


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'
immortal4u_1.png

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'

immortal4u_2.png

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

Hp Paviliion dv4-1365dx .....When I type all of a sudden the cursor will jump and I'll be typing into what I have already typed (just did it)....very frustrating HELP!


Unfortunately the touchpad of most laptops is very sensitive. This will cause the slightest nudge of the thumb or wrist to move your mouse and possibly even "click". In order to avoid this issue and associated frustration, I always 1) disable the touchpad when I have an external mouse plugged in and 2) disable the "tap click" feature. Follow the instructions below for these two suggestions.

Disable touchpad

  1. On my system there is a small button just above the touchpad that disables it, yours might as well. If not, go to Start>Control Panel> Mouse>Device Settings>and Device. Highlight the Disable Button.
  2. Follow the same steps as above but instead of Disable button select Device button and select the Tapping option and unselect "enable tapping".
Good Luck,

Touchpad Sensitivity


Click on the start menu and select "Control Panel". Once in the control panel, select "Hardware and Sound". Once in the hardware and sound menu, click on "Mouse". Once the mouse menu comes up, there should be a tab labeled "Dell Touchpad". Click on that tab and then click on the large touchpad icon to take you to the touchpad options. Once in the touchpad options menu, click on "Device Select". Once you click on deivce select you should see the option to "enable" or "disable" the touchpad.

Disable Touchpad Clicking


Hiya, At the bottom right of the screen, by the clock, you should see an icon for the touchpad.....

Hint : Hover the mouse over the icons and wait for the "Pop-Up" Display to see what they do if your not sure.

When you find the one for the touchpad, simply right click it and scroll down to the option that says "Tap To Click" and left click it so that there is NO TICK next to it..........

........ This will DISABLE all tap click options and leave the touchpad as a touchpad and the buttons as buttons...........

Hope This Helps, Kind Regards,

Me :D
