Satellite P50-C-18K - Touchpad - how to disable tap to click? Windows 10 64bit

Question: Satellite P50-C-18K - Touchpad - how to disable tap to click? Windows 10 64bit

Just bought my Satellite P50-C-18k laptop yesterday - I do not like having tap to click as it seems to be over sensitive and accidentally selects various links as I move the cursor around.
So a simple task - how to disable tap to click on the touchpad - or seriously reduce the sensitivity.

I have of course gone to control panel and unchecked all of the various multiple finger options etc for the touchpad/Elan. I have also had a look at the mouse options but nothing obvious there. I downloaded the touchpad driver from the Toshiba website but that made no difference.

I noticed an earlier thread where people were messing around with the registry but on a different model so i dont really want to try that on my new laptop but if someone can confirm if thats suitable for use with Windows 10 (anniversary updated) 64 bit on the P50_C_18K I will give it a go.

The website is pretty frustrating - with Yoko offering tips that are not really helpful and no obvious way to make a quick phone call for support.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L50-B-1NL running on Windows 8.1. I am trying to disable the tap to click option on the track pad, as I find it is way to sensitive causing increased frustration.

I searched Google and it says there is an option to turn of track pad, but when I go into my settings the turn off option is the only one missing? Is there a way I can turn off tap to click as it is driving me mental.

Answer:Satellite L50-B-1NL - How do I disable tap to click on touchpad?

If I understand you right you want to disable whole touchpad, right.
You can do this using FN+F5 key combination or using F5 key only.

Please open user?s manuals and check page 58. There you and find very useful info about usage of F keys.

Answer:How to disable touchpad click sound on Satellite L


Usually the touchpad does not create any sounds.
I assume you have installed an USB mouse and the sound appears due to the usage of this mouse.

I have no clue what mouse software this is but I think you should check the settings inside this tool.
Otherwise you have to check the control panel -> mouse
There are some options which are available to mouse and touchpad.

Hello all

I have had my new Toshiba Satellite C50D-B-11N laptop for a few days now and I like it a lot.. However I do NOT like the touchpad clicker. Is there any way to turn the click function off on the touchpad as it clicks things whilst I?m moving my finger across the touchpad and it is really annoying me seriously and there is no setting that I can find to resolve this issue!?

I have looked in mouse and touchpad settings and there is no setting to turn the touchpad click function off. Can anybody help please?

Thanks very much

Answer:How to disable touchpad click on my Satellite C50D-B-11N?

To be honest such issue is not known to me and I heard it for the first time now. Usually if something should be ?opened? you must use tapping option.
With other words, so long you have permanent contact with touchpad surface nothing should be open and click option cannot be active.

Anyway, check please if you can find tapping option in mouse properties and disable it just to see if problem persists.

I updated an old G530 (4446-23U) with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit last night and everything more or less works (sound, wireless, webcam, etc.) but the one thing I'd really love to do is turn off the "tap to click" functionality on the TouchPad. I downloaded the Windows 7 64-bit drivers for the TouchPad from and although it did change some of the features that appear in the mouse settings in the control panel, disabling tap to click isn't one of the options. Any suggestions? Thanks!


Go to Solution.

Answer:G530 - How Do I Disable TouchPad "Tap to Click" Functionality on Windows 7?

As I understand your concern, you are unable to disable tapping.Make sure the touchpad driver is installed and the version for the driver is can download the touchpad driver from the mentioned below web link. After this go to Control Panel, open Mouse category then Synaptic/Alps  and then Touchpad Settings and check for "Tapping" option.  Also, like to share with you that if you want to disable the complete touchpad then you can do it with Fn+F8 key.

Hi There,

Whilst the laptops originally came with the 'Touch Pad On/Off Utility' to control the touchpad 'on/off' button located just above the touchpad, I have accidentally un-installed it and cannot find it in the driver list.

I notice there is an XP version but not Windows 7 version.

Can anyone assist me?

Kind Regards,

Answer:Re: Satellite Pro U500-1DK - Touchpad On/Off utility for Windows 7 64bit


Why you have uninstalled this tool if you need it?

Anyway, for Windows 7 you need the tool ?Value Added Package?. After new installation of VAP, the touchpad on/off button should work properly again.

I have a U500-00X012 (Australian Model) which I have updated to Windows 7 64bit. The Toshiba Australia website says to use the Vista 64bit ALPS touchpad driver. I could not get any Vista driver to work with my U500.

The correct driver is available from the Toshiba Europe website

The driver is v7.105.303.117

Hope this saves somebody the many hours I have wasted trying to get the touchpad to work.

Answer:Satellite U500 - ALPS touchpad driver for WIndows 7 64bit


Normally the most Vista drivers also work on Windows. Do you get an error message during the installation or what happens exactly?

Another question: Why you don?t try the driver from the European page? Normally it should also work on your notebook.

I've updated my Click Mini to Windows 10. I've encountered one problem where sometimes my touchpad isn't working correctly. Instead of making the pointer move up and down when instructed, the pointer will go left and right. When making the movement to make the pointer go left and right, it goes up and down. To avoid the problem I connect a mouse or use the touchscreen, however it's still quite annoying.

After booting up the click mini, this seems to be the case 50% of the time.. I suppose it's a software issue. Is there a fix? Is this a known issue?

I have been using my Lenovo X1 carbon for 4 months.  But the experience has been awful. I don't know if my tackpad is defective or not.  Currently I am in the Philippines and there is no way to check or service my unit since they don't carry this model here. My problem is when i tap the touch pad the right click button comes out 80% of the time.  This is really annoying.  I already disabled the right click to double finger tap.  But still even with one single tap on the middle of the touchpad the result is 80% of the time its like doing a right click.. Very annoying. Please help me.  If this is touchpad is defective can anyone let me know so I will have this serviced in Dec. in the US.

My son has just purchased a Satellite P850 laptop to use for school work and gaming and has noticed a problem with the behaviour of the touchpad.

When using the touchpad, if you have one finger in the area of the touchpad used for mouse movement, and then try to click the right hand mouse button, the laptop behaves as if you clicked the left mouse button. If you click the right hand mouse button when you are not touching the mouse movement area, it behaves correctly.

We have tried changing various touchpad settings but have not been able to correct this problem. We have also updated the drivers for the touchpad to the latest version from the Synaptics website, but the problem still exists.

Is there a particular driver or setting that gives the correct behaviour of the right hand mouse button whilst still touching the touchpad with the other finger?

Answer:Satellite P850 - Right click on touchpad acting like a left click

> When using the touchpad, if you have one finger in the area of the touchpad used for mouse >movement, and then try to click the right hand mouse button, the laptop behaves as if you clicked >the left mouse button
Sorry but I use touchpad too but in moment when I use one of the touchpad buttons I don?t touch touchpad area at this moment. I have two Toshiba notebooks and I tried to test this on both of them but none of them react on the way described in your posting.

As far as I know such behaviour can be result of ?confused? touchpad.
>... when you are not touching the mouse movement area, it behaves correctly.
In my opinion it is the right way to use touchpad correctly. I don?t think you can change anything using some other touchpad driver. Preinstalled driver is tested and I think the right one.

Is there any way to disable the right-click zone of the touchpad on my T440s?  The lower right corner seems to be permanently mapped to a right click with one finger, which is completely unnecessary given that I use two fingers for a right click.  Disabling this would make the touchpad behavior much more predictable.

Hey guys,

I have an HP Pavilion dv2700 Notebook with Windows Vista. When I first set up the laptop, I disabled the "tap to click" feature. But the tap to click feature has been enabled once again and now I don't know how to disable it. Originally, I believe I did the common sense thing and went to control panel, mouse, device settings and disabled it. Now when I click on mouse in control panel, I'm given only four tabs to choose from: buttons, pointers, pointer options and hardware. Device settings is no where to be seen. I've gone to a plethora of forums and every solution has said to use this device settings tab which isn't there.

I feel silly for posting to ask this - but I have spent an hour trying to sort this out now and am at the point of banging my head against a wall!

How do I disable the touchpad click feature on my laptop mouse.

I have an Advent 5301 and the touchpad is synaptics.

In "Mouse Properties" there are no options regarding the touchpad at all. Please do not tell me to go there. I have been there and I have looked thoroughly through every part of it. There are no touchpad options.

I tried downloading a driver by going here: - but that just stuck me with a program called Scrybe, which did not appear to do anything at all.
It took forever to download and install, so when it was finally done and after all that proved to be useless I uninstalled it out of rage, and now I just get errors if I try and install it again. I only try to do so as I am at a loss as to what else to do.

Could someone please find me a link to the driver for my laptop? I have looked but I'm drawing a blank right now.

Please help before I go insane!

First Lenovo product, purchased a T440.  The touchpad is really, odd I guess is the best word.  You can physically depress the entire trackpad to trigger a mechanical "click" or you can tap to click.  The mechanical click is obnoxious at best.  It's just sensitive enough to accidentally press down when moving the pointer. Is there a way to disable this mechanical pressing?  Like a screw somewhere to lock it in place?

The default right button click zone is on the lower right corner of the touchpad and there is no way to move it to other corners of the touchpad.

I have read all the forums and scoured the internet and still no success. I have a Dell Inspiron 1520, recently upgraded to Windows 7. I installed the Alps electric driver and i still cant disable the tap to click function. Did i install the wrong Alps driver? First i installed this driver from R227995 because i read on a forum that it worked for someone. When it didnt work for me i rolled back the driver and then simply went to update driver via the properties and hardware tab in the control panel and updated the driver automatically.

Well, I too struggled with trying to disable tap-to-click functionality for a few hours.  But, I finally came to find a very simple solution.  I have a Dell Latitude E5410 with an Alps touchpad installed and it seems to have the latest drivers.  But, for some reason there was no Touchpad administration GUI that I could find anywhere.  I could find one to administer mouse options, but not touchpad ones.  At first after searching around I was getting the impression the Alps touchpad just didn't have a way to disable tap to click and that I'd have to install a new driver or something!  But, that didn't make much sense.  (Just goes to show, don't always believe everything you read.)  After searching for replacement drivers for a long time, I gave up on that idea and looked for a way to change settings in the registry.  I saw some things there under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Alps\Apoint\Tapping but I wasn't sure what to modify exactly.  Then researching this I started to think maybe there was an INI file somewhere I could change to modify settings. Finally, I looked in the following path...  C:\Program Files\DellTPad ... and in this folder I saw a file there called "DellTpad.exe".  When I double-clicked this to run that program I then saw TouchPad Settings and clicked that.  Under "Taps" there was a checkbox to disable "Tap to Click...

Dear Support,
I have a Dell VOSTRO 3560 laptop that has an Elan Tech SmartPad touchpad. I like its responsiveness very much.
Unfortunately, I recently spilled a bit of coffee and some of that went under the touch pad left and right buttons. The buttons stopped functioning but the touch pad itself is still very good.
Even before the spill I rarely used the buttons. I always used the touch pad to tap to click and two finger tap to right-click.Strangely though, after the spill when the hardware buttons stopped working, the tapping on the touch pad also stopped working. I made sure that the touch pad still can do tap clicking by uninstalling the Dell TouchPad driver and reverting to the Microsoft Mouse PS2 driver. In that case I can use the tap to click feature but only for 1 finger tap. I do not get any other feature as the driver is the simple generic MS one.
My question is would it be possible to still use the Elan tech provided (Dell TouchPad) driver and somehow configure it to accept the tap to click and two finger tap to right-click? This in addition to all the remaining scrolling and gesture support that the driver implements? I tried all the Dell Touchpad settings applet but nothing changed. Perhaps a registry value setting in the section for the elantech?
What seems to be happening now is that the driver is doing some hardware diagnostics, determining that the hardware buttons left and right are not working, and consequently completely disabling left and right click comm... Read more

Anyway, I want to disable the mouse pad but I can't. I have the user guid on my laptop, which says, Touch Pad :Pressing FN + F9 enables or disables the touch pad function. Sadly it does not! when I do press it nothing happens, I do not see a change in the Touch Pad icon, which apparently, if done right should have a big red X or something like that, but again it does not happen.

I've also looked the mouse properties of my mouse, and when I select the Advanced tab, then Advance feature settings...., under Touch Pad settings, there is no option to disable it which is higly strange.

What OS do you have and are you running the factory settings or have you installed your own Windows?

I think you should try to reinstall the touchpad driver and the Value Added Package. The Toshiba VAP controls the special function like the FN or illumination keys. You can find all on the Toshiba website: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

So remove the touchpad driver and VAP, restart the notebook and install the newest versions.

Touchpad driver does not depend on notebook model.

Hi, vtjiggy
Does this apply to the entire TrackPad? Do both left and right-clicking require a great deal of force? You could also try installing the latest Synapatics driver and see if that helps at all. Synaptics is the company that develops UltraNav, which is installed on all ThinkPad systems by default. The latest driver can be found here.
Good luck. Let me know how it goes,

Answer:Satellite Pro A200: I want to disable "Tap to Click"

Maybe this thread can help you:

*Mouse -> last tab called ?Device Settings -> Settings? of Synaptics TouchPad*

In new window choose the second option called tapping.
There you have to uncheck the option ?enable tapping?.

Is there a way I can turn off the zoom function on my touchpad.
It's very annoying when it continuously changes zoom.

Answer:Satellite C50-B - How to disable touchpad zoom function?

Go to control panel -> mouse
Here you should check the last tab.

The name of this last tab depends on the touchpad driver which is installed on your notebook.
There are two possibilities: either its ELAN or Synaptics driver

In case your notebook supports ELAN touchpad, go to ELAN tab.
Now you will see new ELAN Smart Pad window providing 3 tabs: One finger, Multi finger, Additional
Choose ?Multi-finger tab? and disable the option called Zooming.

I have had my Satellite L450D-11X laptop, pre-installed with Windows 7 64-bit, since November and have just learned about the function key to disable the touchpad - a very desirable feature. Unfortunately pressing the key combination Fn + F9 does not work. There is an answered question - now closed - in this forum which advises restoring the laptop to its original setup to cure this problem, which I presume means running an HDD recovery procedure and restoring the application software - not a trivial task. I took a chance and downloaded and installed the Synaptics Windows 7 x64 TouchPad driver. It has a facility to disable the touchpad from the mouse properties dialog, which works.

I became aware of the possibility of disabling touchpads when installing a friend's new Acer laptop, which has a button next to the touchpad for switching it off and on. Come the day when every laptop has such a switch an awful lot of laptop users will be happy, judging by the number of people I came across on the web looking for a way to disable their touchpads, especially when typing.

I would prefer if the L450D's key combination worked, however. Does anyone know how to do this without doing an HDD recovery? Some of my other function keys are also 'broken'. Not vital, but I do hate things that do not work as specified.

Answer:Unable to disable touchpad on Satellite L450D-11X

What you should do is to reinstall Value Added Package. You can find it on Toshiba download page. This package contains several tools and one of them is flash cards utility (FN buttons control). Remove preinstalled VAP from the system, restart your notebook and install latest version from Toshiba support page.

By the say, this small button is also available on some Toshiba models. If I am remembering well it must be available on A500 and U500. Maybe also on some other new notebook models.

How do I disable my touch pad zoom function on my L750? I couldn't find anything about it in the user guide but it's driving me INSANE. There are like 5 zoom functions already and toshiba decided what I really need is another one right on the touch pad where it will constantly get in the way.

Anyway, any help would be much appreciated.

Answer:Satellite L750 - how to DISABLE touchpad zoom


I assume you are speaking about the pinch zoom.
It a additional option from Synaptics. The touchpad settings should provide the option to disable the pinch zoom.
Go to control panel -> mouse

I recently upgraded my A305-S6829 laptop from Windows Vista to Windows 7. I use a portable mouse and would like to disable the touchpad.

Unfortunately, the touchpad doesn't show up on my device manager and FN+F9 doesn't work either.

Please help me. Thank you.

Answer:Satellite A305-S6829 I would like to disable touchpad


First of all; this is a Toshiba US series notebook model.
Usually you have to use the drivers from this page:

But it seems that Win 7 drivers are not released on this page for Satellite A305-S6829
Therefore I think you could choose the touchpad drivers from Toshiba European driver page. There you can choose the A305 series or the A300.
I think you could choose also other Win 7 touchpad drivers released for newer notebook series.
Please install the touchpad drivers and check if the FN+F9 would work.

Note! If no FN buttons work, then you will need to install VAP (value added package) and Flash Card Support Utility

I have a new U920t-102 which I am very happy with, but I have this issue with the mousepad's right click (meaning the 'button' the user is able to press on the bottom-right side of the mousepad): sometimes it actually works as a right click, sometimes it works as a left click.
This is annoying especially during web navigation: I'm used to right click on links and open them in a new tab, but when the right click acts as left, I loose the current web page.

I tried to figure out what this behaviour depends on, looking at the animated synaptic icon in windows' tray bar while playing with the left and right click; if I continuosly press the right click button on the mousepad, after some repetitions it will consistely and correctly work as right click, but if press the left click once or more than once, the right click button works as left click for some pressures, and then 'corrects' itself and start again to work correctly.

Any idea/suggestion? is it a hardware problem?


Answer:Satellite U920t-102 touchpad right click issue

Usually the touchpad right / left click can be configured in the Synaptics settings.
Right click on Synaptics icon in tray and point to devices properties.
In buttons tab you will be able to choose right handed scheme or left handed.
Here you could choose the scheme appropriate for you.

You can also try to uninstall the Synaptics touchpad driver and could test the touchpad functionality without the usage of additional touchpad software.

But if this doesn’t help, your might have hardware problem

There is no option to disable it on this laptop, I have searched for the answer online but nothing, there seems to be no way to do it on this model of laptop. I tried downloading the new touchpad driver from this site but had absolutely no effect and gave me no more options to disable it, it changed nothing. Completely stuck now and its driving me crazy!

The mouse also clicks on its own randomly even when Im not touching it, always seems to get bad when im gaming.

I still want to use the touchpad to move the pointer around, just don't want to use it to click.

Answer:How do i disable tap-to-click on Satellite C660/C660D?

On my Satellite S50-B is installed ELAN software and tapping option can also not be disabled.

Explanation: one finger tapping always performs Point/Click/Select function, which is equivalent to clicking the left mouse button.

It is really strange that this option doesn't exist.

Anyway, if you don't need touchpad in general you can enable/disable it using Fx button (don't know exactly which one on this notebook model).

how can I disable tapping on a A210-103 with a Synaptics touchpad.
Tapping means to me that when I touch the touchpad the notebook translate it under circumstances as a mouse click which I don't want.

In the German settings I have found nothing like "tapping".


Answer:How can I disable tapping on Satellite A210-103 with a Synaptics touchpad

Hello Hans Juergen

Of course you can disable the ?tapping?.

I assume you want to disable this ?tapping? and instead of tapping you want to use the both touchpad buttons. Am I right?

This can be disabled in;
Control Panel -> Mouse -> last tab called ?Device Settings? (or similar).
There you have to choose ?Settings? of Synaptics TouchPad

The new window should open and there you could find many different details and settings.
You have to mark the second option ?tapping?. It?s under the point ?overview?.
There you have uncheck the option ?enable tapping?

That?s all ;)

Having just bought a ClickMini to replace my trusty Libretto 100 there are a couple of things that I hope other users or forum experts can help me with.

1) does anyone know how to TURN OFF tapping to click on the ALPS 'mouse pad'. Having been used to a 'nipple' and proper click bars this 'feature' does not work well for me, giving false activations more often than I would like. Note that I have looked at the pad properties in Control Panel and, it appears from this, that tapping either is not active (which it is) or that it cannot be changed. Note also that the ALPS driver is up-to-date having downloaded from the Toshibs website without effect on my problem.

2) how can I display the status of both the battery in the tablet section and that in the keyboard dock? Several folk refer to doing so, or seem to, in the threads below but I cannot find any way of doing so. Your help and advice will be valued.

Finally, although new to this forum and with a new machine, I am far from a Newbie in PC computing terms having bee using compurters in various guises since before the IBM PC was invented.

I have a brand new Satellite L50 CI3 laptop. However, it seem there is a fault with the left and right buttons on the touchpad.

The right click behaves like a left click i.e. it does not open a menu.

The left click cannot drag and drop, this includes when using scroll bars.

Answer:Touchpad right/left click is not working properly on Satellite L50


On this virtual way it is not easy to say what is wrong there. Have you noticed this issue from he first day of usage?
I mean when you start your notebook for the first time it has original factory settings and everything should be OK.

If I understand you right there is some reaction when you use touchpad buttons so what you can try is to set all touchpad options to default settings.

The left click on my touchpad has stopped working. It works *very* occasionally but mostly it doesn't. It also freezes the screen if I try to click it too often (in a fit of temper usually ;) )

A USB mouse works fine, which is okay when I'm working on my desk but means I can no longer use my laptop on my lap! The tap click does work, but I don't like using it.

I reinstalled the drivers and that hasn't solved it. I turned the laptop upside down and gave it a good shake to get rid of any crumbs etc under the mouse and that hasn't solved it either.

Any other ideas?

Answer:Satellite C650D - left click on touchpad does not work

Test the touchpad and it should be disabled. I hate microsoft and dell for putting me through this. The answer is so obvious but for some reason it throws people for a loop.

I recently updated/upgraded my Windows 8 laptop to Windows 10 operating system. I would like to know how to disable the tap-to-click touch-pad feature in Windows 10. It was easy to do on 8, but after searching through the settings on 10 I am unable to locate that setting. Thank you.

Answer:How To Disable Tap-to-Click on Windows 10

I thought I would update you on this. After playing with the settings on Windows 10, I have located the setting to turn off the tap-to-click setting. Follow these steps:

On the right side of the bottom taskbar click on the NOTIFICATIONS icon, then click on ALL SETTINGS. Click on PERSONALIZATION, then THEMES. The last option under RELATED SETTINGS is MOUSE POINTER SETTINGS, select it. Then click on the last tab called DEVICE SETTINGS and again on SETTINGS. A new window will open up with the mouse pointer options. Uncheck TAPPING and you're all done. Hope this helps.

Since upgrading to Windows 10 we are unable to disable the touchpad for our 540p model Thinkpads.The "disable" toggle is not available under mouse settings or under the Ultranav tab. Anyone have any ideas of how to disable these as the trackpads are viewed by many as being substandard and an error point for some of our users. Thank you

Answer:How do I permanently disable my G62 touchpad in Windows 10

Again, thanks!  But that window still does not open, and I do not have a ClickPad option.  My G2 laptop is apparently too old and too cranky to ever work.  Thanks again, but I am throwing in the towel and never buying an HP laptop again.  I do hover love my HP printers. I am now closing this subject!

Hi there. I recently got a new laptop and while I have been able to figure out how to strip the majority of the useless Windows 8 crap out, but I cannot find how to disable this workspace thing when you click the top of the screen, probably because I am using the wrong keywords in Google.

Screenshots as to what I am talking about:

Any help would be most appreciated!

Answer:How to disable the top click and drag in Windows 8.1?

Hey there Brink! What I mean, is when you click and hold the top of the desktop in Windows 8.1, it lets to move it in the Metro interface, similar to how you can set those windows to take up half the screen.
What I want to disable is the whole click and hold thing, since it interferes with selecting items on the desktop.

I have an IdeaPad y480 with the release version of Windows 8 64bit installed. I have downloaded the driver on lenovo's drivers page named "0pto09w8.exe" found under the "Mouse and Keyboard" category for the Lenovo IdeaPad y480. It says it is for Windows 8 32 and 64 bit versions and it's release date is "24 October 2012" (tomorrow). However, I could download it so I am assuming the right version is ready early?  Problem:I download and run that exe. It extracts then attempts to run but I always get this error:Even running in compatibility mode and/or as administrator. I've tried the Windows 7/xp drivers and I get similar errors or they just don't work at all, again in compatibily mode and/or being ran as administrator. Any ideas or any help is appreciated! Google hasn't help much, haha. Thanks,Andy

Answer:IdeaPad y480 Touchpad on Windows 8 64bit - Can't install driver

I encountered the same problem. I manage to fix it by pressing "No to All" when you initially run the installer. It seems like the original files are being overwritten by a different file.

I purchased a T440s a few months ago. Suddenly I am unable to right click on my touchpad in order to open drop down menus, where they are available,or to right click while highlighting text? I manage to do this if  I click on a specific spot around the bottom, middle of the touchpad, but this takes a lot of fiddling around in order to get the precise spot that happens to work.  It is certainly not a practical solution.  Does this sound like a physical hardware issue, that I need to bring my laptop to the depot for, or might this be something else that can be addressed within my settings or some sort of update?   Has anybody else had this specific problem?   Thanks!    

Answer:suddenly right click not work on t440s touchpad, only awkward middle click

For the sake of troubleshooting, I should add that when I connect a mouse it works fine but, of course, this too is not a practical mobile solution.  A response from someone from Lenovo on this site, in particular, would be appreciated.

If you wat to disable your touchpad on your 64-bit gateway laptop (my laptop is a M-1617) you need to first fdind 64-bit drivers for you laptop. Synaptics doesan't have what you need, Gateway doesn't support Windows 7. I finally found drivers that you can install and disable and enable at will. I downloaded the 32-bit & 64-bit drivers for the Gatewqahy NV73. It worked great...Just right-click on desktop, select personalize, select pointers, select touchpad, select disa ble....wala

Answer:Disable Gateway Touchpad running Windows 7

If you are having issues finding drives, also check for an option in your system's BIOS. A lot of machines have an option to turn it off there as well.

Answer:Synaptics touchpad windows 10 wont disable

You can diable the touchpad when an external mouse is connected like so:
In the control panel, select the menu item Mouse, then in the properties go to "Device Settings" and hit the checkbox "Disable internal pointing device when external USB pointing device is attached".

Yesterday I installed Windows-7 on my Inspiron 1525 laptop.  I was
previously running Windows Vista and the Vista-driver for the touchpad
had the intelligence to detect the fact that I have a USB wireless-mouse
(Kensington brand) and so it disabled the touchpad each time I booted
the PC.
But under Windows-7 the touchpad was staying active. I didn't want it
to be active since that was causing problems when I inadvertently touched the touchpad as I was typing.
I went to the Synaptics website, went to the downloads section, and I
downloaded a driver named:
I used Windows Explorer to access my downloads folder and I double
clicked on the above .exe file to run it.  That replaced the
Microsoft-supplied driver for the touchpad with the Synaptics-supplied
driver. The touchpad mouse control worked just fine with the new Synaptics driver.
Then I clicked Start,   Control Panel,   Mouse,   and selected the 
Device Settings tab.  That tab displays the settings for the Touchpad. 
It has a "disable" option, so I clicked on that.  Then the touchpad was
entirely disabled.   If I ever wish to enable it again, I can navigate
to the same place and click on the "Enable" button.
So now my laptop is running under Windows-7 with the touchpad disabled and I use my
USB wireless-mouse as my only mouse.

Answer:How to disable Inspiron 1525 touchpad under Windows-7

I had the same problem (Dell XPS L502X / Windows 7 Professional 64). I downloaded the driver R242713.exe from Dell website, and after installing the driver everything worked exactly as Snowcat explained it here (very good and complete explanation). I am very happy because the jumping pointer issue is really annoying...
Thanks, Snowcat!!

Search for touchpad turned up over 27000 hits, so sorry if this is redundant.
Windows 10 has installed a generic PS/2 Compatible Mouse driver on my Dell 1545.  No suitable driver is available for W10 from either Dell or Alps.  (R270497 ran when I first installed W10 but MS has somehow decided it is no longer operable after the "Anniversary Update" and refuses to install it.)
I am happy with the way the touchpad works with my Alps touchpad except for tapping.  I am too clumsy to have tapping active, and would really like to disable it.  Of course, the Dell Touchpad Settings software doesn't run on W10.  Quickset gives me no access to touchpad settings.
Does anyone know how to disable tapping on that touchpad?  Preferably a full-up package to make adjustment like Dell Touchpad Settings used to do.  But I would have no problem editing the Registry if someone could point to the proper parameter that would disable it if no full-up package is available.
