2018 HP 15.6" HD SVA BrightView WLED Backlit Premium Laptop

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a 2018 HP SVA Brightview WLED Backlit Premium laptop and I would like to disable the touch pad.  I hate the touch pad and am using a wireless mouse instead.  The touch pad mouse always ends up somewhere i don't want to be and it mucks up my sentences or inadvertently ends up deleting whole sentences because of something I've done by accidentally brushing a sleeve across the touch pad.  Please help if you can.

Hi again, sorry for the delay.  My product number is 2MW32UA#ASA

Model IS-bs15bc1

I hope this makes some sense.  I found this on the back of the computer. 

Thanks

You model is HP Notebook - 15-bs158cl.

Judging from the drivers available, it should have a Synaptics touch pad.

 

Go to All Settings > Devices > Touchpad and look for a line that says... Additional settings and click on it.

See if it has a button for Clickpad Disable and click on it.

Does that work?

It wasn't exactly as you showed it but there was a line that showed the touch pad and an additional line to be able to disable it.  Thank you so much.  I have been hours trying to find out how to disable it.  This is brilliant.

Thank you again.
