  1. Can't disable trackpad on Asus Windows 10


    Recently, I've noticed that the trackpad has been turning on despite having a mouse plugged in. I'm currently not sure on how to disable the trackpad. If anyone could be of help, that would be appreciated.

  2. asus k55a mouse pad problem on windows 10

    Hi,

    i fixed this issue with the trackpad buttons not working and also the trackpad being disabled after every reboot when upgrading from windows 8 to 10 by uninstalling the ASUS ATK software using control panel and re-installing from the asus site.

    The ATK program was under utilities on the asus support site.

    The trackpad buttons seem fine now even after rebooting.

    after update Windows 10 trackpad not functioning at all ASUS X205t

    The update to Windows 10 disabled the trackpad on my ASUS x205t.

    I have tried toggling the Fn/trackpad key.

    Keyboard works as far as I'm able to use it which is limited.

    Is there a way to go back to WIndows 8 without a working trackpad? What do I do now?

  4. Can't disable trackpad on Asus Windows 10

    It's Fn plus f9 on my ASUS K75DE. There is also a setting in the ASUS Smart Gesture "Mouse Detection", that will turn it off if a mouse is detected.

  5. I have a Asus G74S, and I can't seem to find Smart gesture, is there a certain location where it is?

  6. Look for a icon that looks like a touch pad down in the notifications area by the clock. Or in Control Panel, if its installed. It was installed for me via Windows update. Without it I have no scroll function. In Windows 8.1 I have to install it manually.

  7. Looking it up, it comes up as nothing, do I have to install it? And from the looks of it, it isn't in the notifications area.

    Can't disable trackpad on Asus Windows 10

    Controlpanel>View large icons> Mouse> Elan> tick Disable when using external device.

    note if the touch pad drivers are updated the default is reset

  12. Hard to say if its actually needed. It is for me or I have no scroll. Check the downloads on the ASUS site for your model. See if Smart Gesture is listed, it may be under utilities, before you install it. If it's not listed it likely isn't needed for your model. If so, it's up to you if you want to try it. You can always uninstall it again. I hunt around for the setting your after in control panel first though.

  13. Can't disable trackpad on Asus Windows 10

    Did you look at the F keys across the top of the keyboard? It's usually up there with the brightness and volume up down etc.

    On my Asus x55 i do NOT have the smart gestures program, I removed it.
    but i do have the Elan driver
    Elan Touchpad 15.8.4.3 x64 whql driver, which MS prompted me to download, 4 august 2015.
    It now resides in
    C/programFiles/elantech.

    The other file name to look for is Synaptics who provide the elan driver

    If MS is not offering you that driver get it from Synaptics

    Its working properly on mine

    IF the elan driver is not installed then the Fn+F9 shortcut will not work.

    Roy

    This is not just an Asus issue, any comp using synaptics will need to use the above driver

    The Solution for Disabling my Asus and Toshiba Laptop's Touch Pad was finally accomplished. I had to download the current driver for the Touch Pad from the Asus and Toshiba Manufacturers and re-install them after upgrading to Windows 10. After the install of the drivers, both appeared in the Mouse Settings Properties. Under Device Settings, the Synaptics TouchPad appeared and I was able to DISABLE it.
