    Touchpad orientation


    Hello

    I use a laptop without a touchscreen display and recently, I happened to flip my display to portrait (flipped) mode because I found it to be more convenient when reading a book. But it still remains a mystery to me how to rotate the touchpad along with the display because using the former in the landscape mode when the latter is in portrait mode is exceedingly difficult. Can someone help me rotate my touchpad along with my display?

    Thanks in advance.

    :)
     

  2. screen orientation

    Hi,

    There's an option on Windows 10 to switch between landscape and portrait orientation. We recommend following these steps on how to switch the screen orientation from portrait to landscape:

    • On Cortana search, type display settings.
    • Choose Display settings from the list.
    • Under Orientation, select on Landscape and click
      Apply.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    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
