  1. disable tapping on touch pad / Windows 10


    Your instructions for removing tapping from my laptop's touchpad ask me to navigate as follows:

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Click on Personalization, then Themes.
    3. Select Mouse pointer settings

    There is no "Mouse pointer settings" when I get to "Themes".

    I just switched from Win 7 to 10. Now I cannot use my machine because whenever I touch the mouse pad, the pointer jumps down 1" - 2". I can scroll up about 1.5" before I have to remove my finger and touch the bottom, and then the pointer drops another 1" - 2".


    I NEED TO TURN OFF THE TAP OPTION!

    :)

    Disable touch pad after installing Windows 10


    I have a Synaptics touch pad on my HP Envy laptop. Prior to upgrading to Windows 10 if I went to mouse in the control panel there was a checkbox to check to disable the touch pad if a external mouse was detected. This worked fine. Now under Windows 10 I can still check the box to disable the touch pad but the setting does not stick and has to be rechecked after every reboot. Is there a way to get this setting to stick? There is no disable setting in the device manager for the Synaptics touch pad.

  3. Disable touch pad after installing Windows 10


    Hello - I am having a problem too. Upgraded my Mom's computer to Windows 10 and I go in and check the box "Disable track pad when USB device is in" however after each reboot it comes right back on and it is frustrating as she rests heavily on the trackpad as she prefers using a mouse. Please help!
