Disable Touchpad without administrative access

2020-07-15, 18:55 PM

We recently had our local computer admin access removed as a security measure.  As a result though, a large amount of our staff are now unable to disable the touchpad.  Many of them like to disable it as they prefer using the trackpoint over the touchpad and the touchpad can get in the way when using the trackpoint.  Is there any way to turn off the touchpad without admin access to the computer?
