I love laptop but I do not want to use the touchpad whenever I am home. I prefer to use a nano wireless mouse because it is more than convenient. Since I am back with my old Dell inspiron, I want to disable the touchpad since it will always mess up my writing whenever I am typing and working online. I am searching online but I cannot find the things that I want (I do not have enough time also). What I did, I opened my computer’s control panel and play with it. In addition, here is how to disable the touchpad of Dell Inspiron 1526 (I need this since I do not know the function keys or short cut for it).
Open control panel and then choose hardware and sounds. Click the Mouse
Note: Click the “Mouse”
Note: Click this touchpad.
Note: Choose device select – button settings. On the lower portion, don’t forget to check “display icon in the task bar”.
Note: Now, there are the choices for disabling the touchpad and touchpad buttons for Dell Inspiron 1526.
