Question about Computers & Internet
Go to the Control Panel. Under the 'Hardware and Sound' options, click 'Mouse'
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 I can not disable touchpad - immortal4u_2.pngr />
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

Go to Dell website and download the driver for the touchpad. Then you can disable the touch pad from the Icon tray.
