p7 & HP Pavilion G6 touchpad... wishlist (reSOLVED)
« on: June 26, 2016, 04:46:36 pm »
I did manage to find where to disable the touchpad entirely, as I mostly use this dead battery laptop as if it were a desktop anymore. I do sometimes wish there were a toggle for the touch pad to detect whether or not a USB mouse is plugged in. As I was sharing photos during a long recent visit with cousins, everyone was astonished that I'd turned off the touch pad entirely... ahh well... its no biggie  ;)

Not having the option is IMHO better than having the option and it not working as in Win10 ;)

My missus Win10 laptop does this .. there is a fix, (registry edit), but about a week later Microsoft update something and it reverts to touchpad enabled with mouse attached again (tick box cleared) .. and this isn't just her PC, it's all over the web ::)
(nor can you disable the driver updates)
