model #20369. I want the touchpad to disable when I engage the wheel mouse.
Tech Support Specialist: Chris L., Support Specialist replied 6 months ago

There is not a way to disable it when you use the wheel mouse. I can give you something that will disable it when you're typing if that will help. Is the problem that the cursor is jumping around?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
