Lenovo Settings has cratered on my Flex 4 1470

I am a writer and I use the keyboard almost exclusively so I need the touchpad almost NEVER.  In the absence of a keystroke chord or a set of strokes, I have to open Settings to get to Touchpad and Disable it.  Having Lenovo Settings out of order for so long is a major bummer because my fat hands continously mark large portions of text and when I hit the wrong [right?] key, ZIP the text goes away. If I'm not paying attention, that portion of my deathless prose is lost.  

 

Hey! It happens.  OK?

 

No, seriously, my warranty is about to expire and I would like to know if this thing is going to be fixed, or is there a set of keystrokes to disable the touchpad - like there should be?  Thanks guys.  I'm at laeva65  at  gmail

I have never used a Flex 4, but if you look at the "User Guide":

 

https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_flex4_1470_1570_1435_1480_1580_ug_en_201606...

 

you will see that on page 7 it says (below the description of the fingerprint reader):

 

You can enable/disable the touchpad by pressing F6.

CyberSim:  If this indeed does it for me, I'll be enormously grateful.  I'll also be feeling a  bit foolish, as the solution was [literally] right under my nose. 

 

That's how it is with tech, tho. They write reams to say so little because answers are often so simple.  Thanks for taking an interest.
