moderated Re: A question for HP laptop users

Van Lant, Robin

I’m on an HP laptop right now. I pressed Windows key, typed “touchpad” (all one word) in the search and it came right up.  The first setting I landed on allows me to turn on and off the touchpad with a toggle. The second setting allows  you to chose whether the touchpad stays on when a mouse is plugged in.

And to be more specific about disabling it in control panel, you can just tap the windows key, and type in device manager, and bring that up, and you may need to right arrow into something to find the touch pad to disable it.

Either HIT compliant devices or maybe another section.

Enter on it when you find it and it puts you in its properties, and on the first page you should find something that is checked called

enable this device

and you can uncheck that, and tab to close or okay.

Sorry yes, I meant the touchpad.

Brian, I don’t have the details on me at the moment but I will check about the mouse.

Hi, Glenn. FN plus ESCAPE does not turn off the touch pad. On Dell computers, FN plus ESCAPE turns off function keys as Media or Hot keys.

Do you mean the touch pad?

I think someone wrote in that on one brand, they used FN + Escape to turn it off.

Otherwise, you can go to control panel and disable it there too.

Hi all,

Is there a shortcut key to disable the mouse on an HP laptop? My particular laptop is HP ProBook 640 G4.

On Toshiba laptops I used To press the Fn key + f9 to toggle the mouse on and off. My HP Pro doesn’t seem to have this function and the HP help desk in Australia hasn’t been of much use either. They advised me to double press quickly at the bottom left every time I turn the laptop on but that seems to be hit and miss.

Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and regards
