    Click on "Start" button,type "Mouse" in the search box and hit the Enter button on your keyboard. It will open the Mouse settings window. Now click on "Device Select / Button Settings". Make sure "Device Select" is selected. Now move to the bottom and put a check mark on the box which shows "Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when external USB mouse is present". It will disable your Touchpad. However don't forget to uncheck this box again after disconnecting the external mouse. If you are still facing any issue then post your queries in our forum.

    Click on "Start" control key,kind "Personal computer mouse" inside look for container striking a Get into control key in your keyboard. It will eventually open a Personal computer mouse settings window. Now click on "Unit Opt for / Button Controls ".Ensure "Unit Opt for" is selected. Now move in order to underneath and place a good indicate on the box that displays "Disable Touchpad/Pointing Cling if exterior USB mouse button is there ".It will eventually eliminate your own Touchpad. Nonetheless make sure you uncheck this specific container once more following disconnecting a exterior mouse.
