@NMT7,

 

I reviewed your post and I understand that you want to turn off the touchpad on your computer.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

I recommend you follow the below steps to disable the touchpad on your computer.

 

  1. Click Start.
  2. Type device manager into the Search box. In the Device Manager, expand Mice and other pointing devices. IDG. Look for your mouse in the Device Manager, to disable its touchpad.
  3. Right-click the touchpad's entry. In the menu that pops up, click Disable.
  4. Confirm your choice in the pop-up window.

 

In case if you use an external mouse, then I recommend you follow the below steps.

 

Step 1: Open Settings, click Devices icon and then click Mouse & touchpad.

Step 2: Under Touchpad section, turn off the option labelled Leave touchpad on when a mouse is connected. Please note that the option might not appear in non-precision touchpads.

 

Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!
