turn off touchpad on 15-ba015na

Example: Pavilion 15-ba015na
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hi, Juat bought HP Notebook 15-ba015na. I am more comfortable with external mouse and plugged in one. I works but so does the touchpad, which I want to deactivate. With my old Toshiba Satellite laptop this was dead easy with the fn keys. Does anyone have a solution for my HP? Browsing the net, I found one possibility but it was scarily complicated and I'm no techno wizz, to say the least :) Not even surI am posting on the right board... 

I appreciate any help. TIA.

Hi,

 

You should be able to do this as follows.

 

Open windows Control Panel and in the top right, next to View by: select 'Large Icons'.  From the new layout, select the Mouse entry and then select the ClickPad Settings tab.

 

Enter a checkmark against 'Disable internal pointing device when external USB pointing device is attached', then click Apply and Ok to save the change.
