Yoga 920 disable touchpad while using external mouse and typing

I have a Yoga 920, which replaced my Yoga 3 Pro, and I love it dearly. I have adjusted to the tiny up/down arrows OK. My only real complaint is that I keep activating the touchpad whilst typing, and since I have an external mouse that I use a lot, I don't really need the touchpad. I would like to automatically disable the touchpad whilst using the external mouse, at least when typing. I decreased the touchpad sensitivity but then the touchpad doesn't work that well when I don't use the external mouse.

 

I can't find any place in Settings or Control Panel or any registry hacks that apply to this model of laptop that would help this. (I'm using to twiddling Synaptics settings but this laptop doesn't have any.)

 

Thanks for any help.

Re: Yoga 920 disable touchpad while using external mouse and typing

On the 920, you just press the F6 key. That's assuming you haven't changed the behavior of the function keys. If so, you'll have to press F first. 

 

Press F6 again to turn it back on. You'll briefly see the touchpad icon in the lower center of the screen. There'll be a slash through it if you're cycling it off.

 

Same idea for the speakers, microphone, camera and so forth.

Great! Thank you. Much easier than on the Yoga 3 Pro.
