In this post, we’ll see how to disable the touchpad when a mouse is connected.
Also, we’ll view how to turn off the touchpad completely. Let’s get started.
Hit Devices > Touchpad.
To disable touchpad when a mouse is connected:
Unselect Leave touchpad on when a mouse is connected option which you can find at the top.
Note: To go to default, select the above option.
To turn off touchpad entirely:
Hit the toggle switch under Touchpad which you can find at the top.

An alternate method to turn off touchpad completely
Look F1-F12 for the touchpad symbol.
Once you find the one, press the Function key and the key you find (in my case, it is F9) simultaneously.
Note: if you want to enable the touchpad, then press the above button combination.
