  1. How do I disable my touchpad


    Since the update, my touchpad settings are gone. The only option I have is to lower my sensitivity. I try clicking on Precision touchpad settings but it always takes me to the basic settings. Before the update I had my touchpad disabled because it drives me nuts when I am typing or doing something and constantly hit the touchpad and my cursor moves. How am I supposed to disable it now?

    How to disable the touchpad.

    Hi Ralph,

    There are a lot of factors for this issue to occur. To
    isolate the issue, we have some questions for you:


    • Were there any changes made before the issue occur?

    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    If it is a tablet, the touchpad will not be disabled as a design. For more accurate information, we suggest that
    you contact your manufacturer
    for further assistance.

    Update us on how
    everything goes.

    Regards.
