  1. Turn OFF the touchpad on my Dell Laptop


    I do not use my touchpad on my Dell Laptop. I have set it to Low sensitivity. It still moves the cursor as I am typing. I have also tried taping a cover over it-no help. How can I turn it off so as I type, the cursor does not move around the screen?

    :)

    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

    Enabling touchpad windows 10 Dell laptop

    Hi Amy,

    I realize that it must be difficult for you when things are not working as it should. Sorry to know that you are facing this issue.

    Please answer these questions to get more clarity on this issue:


    • Did you make any changes to the pc prior to this issue?

    • Have you installed all pending updates on the pc?

    A lot of Dell touchpads have an area at the top left of the pad which when double-tapped will toggle the touchpad On/Off.

    Further, follow these steps to check if that helps:


    • In the Search box, type touchpad.

    • Touch or click Mouse & touchpad settings (System settings).

    • Touch or click the Touchpad toggle to turn off or on the Touchpad.

    Note: When there is no Touchpad toggle look for Additional mouse options at the bottom of the page.


    • Touch or click Additional mouse options.

    • Touch or click the Dell Touchpad or Click Pad tab.

    Touch or click the link, Click to change Dell Touchpad settings, there may be an option to enable or disable the Touchpad.

    Keep us informed to help you further.
