How to disable touch pad

HP Recommended
255 G7
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am forever accidentally touching the touch pad on my 255 G7 notebook and sending the cursor on wild excursions across the desktop. Since I prefer to use a more conventional mouse anyway, I would like to be able to disable the touchpad in a way that makes it easily reactivated - any ideas? I thought it might be possible to disable it in "Win+X -> Devices" but the Disable Device option in the Driver tab is greyed out 😞

You might have a touch button kind of thing on your touch bad, just touch it hard two or three times the light will be turned on and then your touch pad will be off existing boiler efficiency

Hi, This laptop doesn't appear to have any lights relating to the rouchpad - it doesn't even have one for number lock! I had heard that some HP notebooks have the sort of virtual button that you refer to at one of the corners of the touch pad but I don't think the 255 G7 does. I've certainly not been able to find it.
