Follow these steps to disable the Touchpad or ClickPad when an external USB mouse is attached. You can also add a touchpad icon to the taskbar for quick access to settings.
Search Windows for TouchPad.
From the results list click TouchPad settings.
Click Additional settings.
To disable the touchpad when using a USB mouse, check Disable external pointing device when external USB pointing device is attached.
Under Tray Icon, select if and how the touchpad icon is displayed in the taskbar.
Refer to this document HP Notebook PCs - Using the TouchPad or ClickPad (Windows 10) for additional help.
