    Procedure for disabling touchpad in Windows 8

    When I type something into my laptop upgraded to Windows 8, my palm will touch the keypad sometimes. I donít want this touchpad as it disrupts typing. In what way can I turn it off?

    Right click any space on ‘Start’ screen and select ‘All apps’ option from available menu. Swipe the Apps screen to right side. You can then find ‘Windows System’ category on the screen. Click the ‘Control Panel’ icon available under that category. Once you get into ‘Control Panel’ type ‘change mouse settings’ into search box and click on ‘change mouse settings’ option. Then, click the ‘Device’ settings available on the screen. Locate touchpad from the list of devices pop up on the screen and press the ‘Disable’ button next to it.
