How can I disable Touch Pad?
Posted: 05-Nov-2007 10:05

This is really stupid, however, I have a Toshiba Laptop (can’t remember the model off hand, however it’s only a few months old) and the problem is the Touch pad, I can not get it turned off. It is driving me crazy as I use a wireless mouse and when I am typing the curser is jumping all over the page. I have tried the function keys to turn it off yet it doesn’t work.

Any suggestions please!!

Hello Fiona

On every Toshiba notebook Touch Pad can be disabled on two different ways. The first one is using FN+F9 key combination or using DISABLE option in mouse properties.

That’s all!

Silas is right. The principle is always the same but easiest way to do this is FN+F9 key combination usage. When the touch pad is disabled you will see it as small symbol in task bar (touchpad symbol with red X).
