    It’s been like this for quite a while and I can’t find anything on how to fix this. It’s turned on in settings and even if I uninstall the driver and restart my laptop, the problem still persists. I watched TechFixIT’s video on this and none of the solutions worked. Its not the touchpad itself being broken. I know that cause whenever I open up my laptop, I can see the touchpad symbol with a red cross over it, meaning it disables itself upon opening. Help

    I want to disable touchpad on Dell laptop


    Hello everyone,
    My laptop's touchpad works and I don't want it to, because I prefer a mouse. It's a Dell Inspiron 11 3000 series on windows 10 OS.

    What I have tried that hasn't worked:
    • start<settings<devices<mouse & touchpad<additional mouse options. This opens a window called Mouse Options which has 5 tabs up top, none of which involve the touchpad. The Hardware tab shows 2 devices: the mouse itself, and the USB. No touchpad there.
    • windows key+x<mobility center. No touchpad to be found.
    • various function keys. No options for touchpad on/off.
    • device manager<mice and other pointing devices. Again, only the mouse and usb show up. It appears the touchpad is working without a driver, which is a little spooky.
    Any other suggestions? I could try downloading a third party driver, but that seems like a step in the wrong direction.
    Thanks
