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.

In order to help you, we need to know the exact product number of your laptop.
The product number is located in the HP Support Assistant.
Go to the Start menu and scroll to H>HP Help and Support>HP Support Assistant.
Open the program and click on your computer in the list.
The Product Number will be listed either on the top or bottom of the window.

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.
