Laptop technician: Richard, Laptop Specialist replied 22 days ago

Thanks

To do this

  1. You can find on your Windows 8 start screen a “Control Panel” icon; left click on the icon to open it.
  2. Now you will have to left click on the “More settings” feature to open it. You can find this on the left of the screen after you clicked on “Control Panel”.
  3. A window with “Control Panel” will open. In that window double click (left click) on the “Mouse settings” feature.
  4. After you get in the “Mouse settings” window left click on the “Change mouse settings” feature presented there.
  5. A “Mouse Properties” window will show.
  6. You will have to left click in the upper side of the window on the “Buttons” tab.
  7. Now next to “Left button” you need to choose the option “None” from the dropdown menu.
  8. Next to “Right button” you need to choose the option “None” from the dropdown menu.
  9. Left click on the “OK” button in the lower side of the screen.
  10. You should now have the touchpad buttons disabled and properly use your mouse.

Let me know how you go please

Laptop technician: Richard, Laptop Specialist replied 22 days ago

ok, then do it this way

Click start, then Settings

Then type in Touchpad and click on touchpad Settings.

Then you should be able to turn it off there.

Let me know how you go please

and I have to go right now so I dont know what to do at this point ... but the 41 buck I spent didnt seem to be a real good buy
Laptop technician: Richard, Laptop Specialist replied 22 days ago

Either instructions will work, so a step is not being done correctly..

do you want it off while you are typing?
