@jarvis1995, welcome to the forum.


The procedure that you tried should have disabled the Touchscreen.  I just tried it on my Win 10 HP laptop and it worked perfectly.  When I clicked "Disable" I received a warning that "Disabling this device will cause it to stop working".  I clicked "Yes" and it stopped working as promised.  I suggest trying this procedure again.


Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.
