HP Envy Laptop, disabling Mouse/touch pad

Jim L

Hiya folks,


Just bought myself a HP Envy laptop, installed Jaws etc but for the life of me, my friend with vision who has helped me setup this up we cannot disable mouse/touch pad at all, we can go into the setting disable it from it saying enabled but it doesn’t stick either within a session or a reboot, sometimes stays for a few minutes then just works again.


As I’m using a screen reader in Jaws going anywhere near the mouse/touch pad can be annoying as it moves your place sometimes.


Anyone have any work around/ little freeware software/app that can disable this feature permantly?.

We’ve tried googling an answer but nothing we found so far helps.

No function keys do this either.


Any help will be appreciated.
