Question about Computers & Internet
I prefer to use a USB mouse and would like to de-activate the touch pad as I find if I accidently touch the pad, my work is nowhere. Can this be done in a semi-permanant manner?
Yes, this can be done by holding down the blueish FN button in most acer laptops this is in the left lower corner of the keyboard.
also while holding down the fn key you have to press the Touchpad button, its one of the buttons between F1 and F12 these buttons should have small blueish icons in them, One of them is the touchpad as this varies between laptops I would suggest you try them all untill you find the correct one which disables and enables the touchpad.
Let me know if you need anything else and if you got it sorted you can close the thread with a fixya rateing.
Good luck and feel free to ask me for further assistance.
