How to disable touchpad in laptop ??

If you a laptop user, you might find it frustrating when your finger brushes up against the touchpad causing a erratic movement of the cursor.It is annoying as the cursor jumps to some random location on the screen.

So , how to turn off this touchpad in laptop to prevent erratic movement of cursor ??

  • Go to control panel and click on Mouse properties icon.This appears directly only in classic view of control panel
  • If you are having categorical view,click on printers and other hardware and then click on mouse properties icon
  • Now click the device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present.".
  • Now the cursor won't move from touchpad.

  • Alternatively, you can disable the touchpad of your laptop by clicking the "Disable Device" in the Touch Pad setting. You can even disable the touchpad from the BIOS setup [press F2 or del when the computer starts to enter BIOS settings].
There are no keyboard shortcuts available for this setting.Moreover some laptops coming now are having a button for locking the touchpad when needed.That might be much helpful as you cant go to control panel every time you type.You can create a shortcut of mouse properties somewhere in your quick launch or start menu for doing the above procedure in a faster way.

I have aspire one, vista home edtion but there is no dissable touchpad settings. The only settings available are Buttons, Pointers, Pointer Options, Wheel and Hardware. I still can't dissable my touchpad.

I couldn't find the disable the touchpad button so I uninstalled the drivers for the touchpad. It is still working and driving me crazy cuz the cursor jumps all around when I accidentally brush against it. What should I do now to disable the touchpad?

This is bullshit.

Hello everybody

The easiest way how to turn off the touchpad is to go on www.synaptics.com
download a proper driver for your operating system and turn it off in the program what you installed. and its really working
Pety

maybe we should invent a touchpad that pops out of your loptop and you can use it as a regular mouse.

ofcourse it will be wireless and chargeable when you put it back on your loptop. :-)

For Acer Vista laptops you go to Control Panel->Mouse->Device Settings [Or Drive settings for some]
Then click on 'Synaptics Touchpad' and click 'Disable'

louis vuitton handbags is a statement of class a status. With prices starting in the thousands of dollars and going up to the tens of thousands of dollars, louis vuitton for sale is not an item that is available to just anyone, or something that people save money for. It shows that Monogram Jokes owner has the means to buy Monogram Leather , but at the same time, those means are a normal part of his or her life.

It worked great for me, it was under "device settings" in the mouse portion of the control panel... thank you so much! I have windows 7

You would think there would be a disable button under the touchpad settings wouldn't you? Because mine doesn't have it when I have an alternate mouse source.

tutup aja pake lakban 10 lapis, pasti beres

Thanks for taking the time to post a comment.
That is quite a hefty server package you have going there. Very glad to hear that all is well with it.

There is a universal utility that does a job automatically for any type of touchpads and alternative kinds of pointing devices - UnTouch at http://www.averk.net/untouch.html
It was written when I was got crazy with my VAIO after I tried to turn touchpad off when I connect USB mouse.

Using Fn + F7 on Acer Aspire will disable the mouse pad
it toggles both on and off, you need to hold it for a few seconds to enable it. I think that same combo worked on my Sony vaio too.

Thanks for the tips. I've been wondering how to disable that annoying touch pad for a while now.

I have tried uninstalling the USB Devise and work when i using the mouse.

But i want to Disable Touchpad without any installation.. So i'm using simple shortcut key ‘Fn+F1’, Fn+F2…Fn+F12
