Disable touchpad while typing? [X1 Yoga 6th Gen]

2021-04-07, 17:57 PM

Hello,

 

I want to disable the touchpad while typing. With the larger touchpad on the 6th Gen Yoga, I'm constantly bumping it and it moves my cursor. I'm certain this was an option on previous X1 Carbon editions. There's an option to disable while mouse is connected, which is not what I want. 

 

Any advice how to disable this while typing?

Hi,

 

As a TrackPoint user, my first and favorite suggestion is to just turn off the touchpad entirely ;)  I usually do that on my ThinkPads.

 

But good question.  Just took a look around my X1YG6 and I don't see anything like "palm rejection" as an option. Some posts on the interweb suggest setting the sensitivity to the lowest possible.  Does that help at all?

I've tried that setting, but it doesn't seem to do much. For now I'll just disable the touchpad. That's not ideal at all, but it'll eliminate the issue for now. :(
