How do I turn off the mouse pad? I have an external mouse

Customer Question

How do I turn off the mouse pad? I have an external mouse that I use exclusively. However when the mouse pad is operational the program I'm typing in does some moving of it's own - very annoying!!

Hello & Welcome to JustAnswer.
Thank you for your question. I will do my best to assist you.
just to confirm, you want to turn the touch pad off? the one built onto the laptop and use the external mouse only?
Optional Remote Connect Service - Quick Resolution
Would you like me to remotely connect to your computer and fix the issue - The remote service will be an additional service for $34 but will allow me direct access to work on your issue and fix it (while you watch on your screen). If you need remote service, reply with the words "i want remote"
If you do not need the remote service, then simply provide me the requested information above. If you need remote service reply me with the words "i want remote".
Thanks

Yes, turn off the built-in touch pad and use the external mouse only.
