Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E550 touch pad disable when typing + disable with usb mouse feature missing

Hi,

 

My touchpad is touchy.  I will be typing something and all of a sudden the cursor will jump because the touchpad was still active.  Cannot find any setting anywhere which disables the keyboard while typing.  Also cannot find a feature that disables the touchpad when a mouse is plugged in.

 

Any help appreciated

Hi jd31,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Forums!

 

You could consider disabling the synaptics pointing device in Device manager while you have attached the USB mouse.                

 

Please let us know, whether the above step helped you.

Thank you, have a good day.

Hi Toreador,

 

If not synaptic driver then try disabling the ALPS thinkpad ultranav driver.

 

Please let me know whether the above step helped you.

Thank you, have a good day.
