Latitude E7450 Touchpad issue

Jump to solution

Hi 

While using the laptop in office, every line or so that I type, my thumbs touch the touchpad and disorient the cursor, and I end up typing on the wrong line. I want to either:

1. Disable the touchpad automatically whenever the system detects an external pointing device like a mouse ,Or

2. Disable the touchpad entirely (Enable it when required)

Unfortunately this particular laptop doesn't seem to have a touchpad disable button. How do I accomplish one of the above?

Hi GUNJAN1982,

Thank you for writing to us.

You can use the <Fn> + <F5> keys (together) on the keyboard to disable / enable the Touchpad.

Else you can follow the below steps to disable the Touchpad:

*Go to control panel

*Under Hardware and Sound > Dell Touchpad

*In the new window of Pointing Devices, select Touchpad and disable the Touchpad.

You will need to use a wired or wireless mouse, to enable it again.

Feel free to reach out to us, should you have any further questions.

I have the same laptop. Fn F5 does not turn off the touchpad. When I go to the control panel there is no "Dell Touchpad". 

Other solutions please

Please download and install the following drivers:
