I just got a Yoga S740. I would like to use it with an external keyboard, that I put over the built-in keyboard, simply because I'm more used to its layout, and the feel of its keys.
My problem is that the feet of the external keyboard are pressing buttons on the built-in keyboard, making it unusable in this setup.
So I'm looking for a solution that would allow me to "easily" de-activate and re-activate the built-in keyboard. I'm not looking for solution like opening the case and unplugging the keyboard, because I'm not using the external one 100% of the time.
The only solutions I've found online are
If someone has a solution for my issue, I would appreciate it very much !

Welcome to the Community,
What you would like to do is possible only on Windows 10 pro and above as this will involve you editing the Group Policy using the Group Policy Editor. We need to Enable a device installation restriction in the Windows' group policy editor to stop the built-in keyboard from re-installing every time you restart the computer.
Hope this helps,

Possible with the same steps you are doing right now, disable by uninstalling it and enabling by restarting the device.
The restart will be the trigger to detect a keyboard that's attached and the computer will install the driver for it.
