On my HHP laptops there is a mouse setting to disable the touch pad if you have a physical mouse plugged in. I purchased a mouse with a small dongle and keep it plugged into a USB port.

However, I notice that sometimes the mouse pad gets turned back on probably
from Dell updates, so I'm gradually learning to live with the mouse bening
If someone has instructions for turning the mouse pad off on a Dell
computer, and keeping it off, I'd appreciate them.

Subject: Laptop mouse question
I have had numerous laptops over the years and the "mouse" area always
causes problems. Often times I inadvertently touch the mouse area and JAWS
loses focus. Do most users turn off the mouse and connect an external mouse
if sighted users want to utilize a mouse? Any input would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
