With the tapping feature on the touch-pad, its part of mouse option in the control panel. Now I could be mistaken, either that or its under its own software that was install under the ibm folder in the programs list under the Start Button.
I'm trying to remember without a ibm thinkpad not in front of me.

Let me know

How do I disable my touchpad on my Compaq Presario CQ56?


In the top left hand corner of the touch pad there is a little white dot. Double tap that with your finger and it should light up orange and that means your touch pad is disabled, double tap again to enable it. Hope that helps!

How to disable mouse pad double tap


On all Panasonic Toughbook models, if the Touchpad driver is
properly installed then you can disable the "TAPPING" feature.
Check under device manager. If the driver says PS2 Mouse,
then you need to locate your touchpad driver. Otherwise
locate the advanced setting under MOUSE under the control
panel and find "TAPPING" and un-check to disable feature.
Good Luck!

Dont know how to switch my touchpad back on when it switches off without rebooting!!


This laptop has a special feature which allows you to double tap the top left hand side of the touch pad, and it will then enable, or disable the touchpad. If you see a orange light on the touchpad, then double tap the light, and it should enable the touchpad again. On a side note, you should be concerned with why the touch pad is disabling itself to begin with!

Orange light comes on occassionally on mouse pad and cursor freezes, how do i stop this


Tap the orange light quickly two times to enable the touchpad. Touch the same spot twice to disable the touchpad. To see the instructions from HP type "mouse" into the Search Programs and Files. Click on "Change mouse settings" and click Device Settings. Click on "Settings" and click "Touch pad disable zone". I was delighted to have found this as I had been restarting the computer manually to enable the touchpad. Shame on HP. The instructions for this simple problem are difficult to locate for the average user. They can do better.

How do you turn off the touch pad


Some notebook users find the touch pad annoying because at times, while typing fast, their thumbs accidentally brush up against the touchpad. This is frustrating because the mouse cursor jumps to a random location on the screen and can cause undesirable things.

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.

Can I disable the touchpad double click feature on


You can go to the control panel and click on Mouse. Look at the top tab and click on settings. The window that comes up shoes the touchpad device, highlight it and click on the settings button. Look at the list of options and click on tapping. Look for the little box and uncheck if it says enable tapping. This will disable the tapping function of the pad, so you will only be able to scroll with the pad and click with the buttons. Click apply and ok.

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.

I have an Asus K60 Laptop.I can not figure out how to turn off the touch pad, as I am using a wireless external mouse instead of the touchpad on the laptop.Any clues?


Did you try the FN key and F9...
That is what they say to disable your touchpad

You have a function key which is called Fn That key allows you to use the functions on the F series keys

So Fn then F9 should do the trick

I want to disable the "click" feature of the touch paD on my HP Pavilion DV2000 laptop. It is too sensitive and I want to only click using the buttons. Can you help me find the settings ?


Some laptops have a button directly on them to disable the touchpad feature, if you do not have one of theses. Look in your control panel for touchpad software. Synopsis TouchPad software is one of the more popular softwares, If you see this red ICON in control panel, open up the configuration window for it and there you will able option in there to disable the tap click.
