On my new notebook the touchpad fully extends into the area which i would use as buttons on the bottom. This means that unless I use the touchpad with 1 finger only, clicking results in moved cursor and consequently misclicks. In previous machines I either had separate buttons or would be able to reduce the pointing area of the touchpad through the synaptics software.
On this laptop I only can configure windows precision touchpad.
Is there a way to reduce or disable this behavior?

I had an old hp 6460b laptop and found the touchpad got in the way so I disabled it. I did this by going into device manager, input devices, and finding the touchpad and disabling it. Note, I already had a usb mouse connected. Now, when I power on the laptop, I get a beep and then a yellow led appears in the touchpad indicating that it has been disabled. I then operate the laptop using the keyboard and an external mouse.
