  1. touchpad on laptop


    I want to "disable" my "touchpad" on my Inspiron 1525 laptop. I went into Device Management/Human Interface Devices. I "did not" see HD-compliant touch screen, only HD-compliant vendor-defined device. I "disabled" this device, but it did not disable my touchpad. What do I do to "disable" my touchpad?

    :)

    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

    3. Select Device Manager to open it
    4. Click down arrow to left of "Mice and other..." to expand
    5. Right click Dell Touchpad

    TouchPad problem

    see attached screenshot of the keys after I re ran the scan

    so i assume next steps are to have that program open that you suggested whilst using the laptop and then when the touchpad gets disabled to check if the keys have changed?
