How do I Turn OFF gestures for ELAN Clickpad

HP Recommended
Pavilion 15-CS3XXX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

On my Envy laptop I can go to Settings/Mouse/Other mouse options and there's a mouse properties box that lets me turn off gestures.  On this new Pavilion there seems to be no such box.  I need the click pad to function, I just want the gestures functionality stopped.  How can I do that??

@PBRCaptain1 Welcome to HP Community!

 

I understand that you would like to  turn off the gestures for ELAN Clickpad.

 

You can enable/disable the touchpad option from Control panel under Mouse option. Control panel contains settings of all the system device installed on the computer.

 

To disable the touchpad option on the computer, follow the steps below:

  1. Press Windows logo + X keys on the keyboard and select Control panel from the context menu.
  2. From the top right corner of the screen click on View by and select Large icons.
  3. Click on Mouse option from the window.
  4. Click on Device settings tab from the Mouse properties screen, button the Disable button to turn off the touchpad option. 
  5. Click on Apply and OK.
  6. Close the window and check if the changes are effective.

Keep us posted,

Thanks but this does not work.  First - Windows Logo + X - the menu that appears has no "Control Panel" option.

Went to "Control Panel" via Cortana.  "Mouse" did not give me a "Mouse Properties" screen with the enable/disable toggle switches.  It only gave me a screen where I can change the mouse buttons and mouse cursor speed.

On my Envy laptop the Mouse settings screen offers an "Other Mouse Options" screen on which I can find check boxes to enable or disable gestures.  Same on my much older Pavilion DV6 laptop.  This "new" Pavilion laptop does not have that functionality in the Mouse Settings screen.

Now what???

I understand your concerns.

 

Please perform the below steps and check.

 

Press Windows Key + R and enter regedit. Press Enter or click OK.  

1.    When Registry Editor opens, go to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Synaptics\SynTPEnhkey in the left pane.  

2.     In the right pane, right-click the empty space and choose New > DWORD (32-bit Value).  

3.    Enter DisableIntPDFeature as the name of the new DWORD and double click it to open its properties.  

4.    Select the Hexadecimal option and change the Value data to 33. Click OK.  

5.     Close Registry Editor and restart your PC.  

 

After making these changes in the registry, you should see the option to disable your touchpad in Mouse settings. 

Press Windows Key + X to open the Win + X menu and select Control Panel from the list.  

When Control Panel opens, go to Hardware and Sound section and select Mouse.  

1.    When the Mouse settings window opens, you should see the ELAN or Device Settings tab. Switch to it.  

2.    Locate Disable internal pointing device when the external USB pointing device is attached option and enable it.  

Click Apply and OK to save changes. 

 

Have a nice day!!
