Disabling the Touchpad
« on: October 10, 2013, 11:04:28 PM »
Hey y'all, I have a Toshiba Satellite that is running Windows 8.  I love the computer, semi-love the OS; but that is not the point.  When I first got the laptop, I bought a wireless mouse to go with because I absolutely hate the touchpad mouse.  Today, for some inexplicable reason, my wireless mouse decided to die.  So, I bought a new one.  When I installed the driver of the old one back when I first bought it, I was able to disable the touchpad, but I'll be damned if I can remember how I managed to do it.  And now, I have hooked in the new wireless mouse, it's working great...except I keep moving the damned cursor when I type because of the touchpad. 

Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Hope this helps. The info is good if the video is a bit wobbly.
