Disable and Enable the touch pad of HP Probook

My touch pad is disabled, and the LED is off. How can I turn it back on?

My regular mouse works. This happened once before though I can't recall how I sorted it out.

If your HP ProBook touch pad is not working, but your regular mouse is, it may be malfunctioning. Try the steps in the great VisiHow article above to re-enable your touch pad. Then, restart your computer. Once your HP ProBook has booted back up, check to see that the touch pad LED light is back on. If it is, and it's blue, you will be able to use the touch pad again. If it is back on and it is orange, you will need to run through the steps in the VisiHow article above. If it turns blue, you're all set to use your touch pad again. However, if the LED light on your touch pad does not turn on after you've restarted your computer, you will need to follow these instructions to see if you can re-enable the touch pad through Windows:

  1. 1

  2. 2

  3. 3

  4. 4

  5. 5

  6. 6

Your computer will now give you instructions on how to set up your touch pad. Follow them. Your touch pad should now work. If it still doesn't work, you will need to contact HP customer support line to speak to a customer service representative who will troubleshoot the issue further. If they cannot help you over the phone, they will schedule a repair or replacement for your computer. Depending on your warranty status and the severity of the issue, you may have to pay for the repairs or replacement.

Do I have to download a setting to disable my mouse pad?

Double-tapping the LED light on the laptop doesn't work

If your notebook refuses to turn off the touchpad with double-tapping the LED button, then you can resort to one of the methods below.

  • If your laptop model is different, then there might be a switch at the edge of the laptop or a keyboard shortcut. For example, "Fn" + "F7". You will need to consult your laptop manual available on the website of the manufacturer or as a paper manual that came with your laptop.
  • There might be a touchpad icon in the system tray in the lower-right corner. Double-click or right-click it to see the options. It might be possible to disable the touchpad there.
  • Press the Windows key and type "mouse". Press "Enter". You might find a way to disable the touchpad in the opened window.
  • The method that should work for all of the laptops is pressing the Windows key + "Pause - Break". Then, click "Device Manager". Expand "Mice and other pointing devices" by clicking it. Right-click the touchpad icon. Click "Disable". Confirm it. This will disable the mouse.
  • The last method is installing programs like TouchFreeze. Launch them, and you will be able to disable your touchpad.

How do I disable the touchpad on my HP ProBook 450 G2?

The double-tab feature on the trackpad isn't working and I can't find "touchpad" in my control panel. I am stuck. Any idea? None of the steps indicated are working on my device. I have tried: I tried double-tapping the upper left corner of the trackpad as well as going into devices & printers. I cannot find trackpad anywhere in the settings, only mouse. I think it was caused by: I'm not sure if my driver is messed up or if that feature is disabled somewhere else.

How to Enable & Disable an HP Touchpad

The touchpad on your HP laptop may be practical for everyday use, but your work may require something with more precision and control. If you want to use an external mouse or pointing device, you may want to disable the touchpad when you're not using it. Disabling the touchpad can prevent unwanted cursor movement if your hand moves across it. HP laptops are equipped with Synaptics touchpad drivers, which allow you to enable, disable and customize various touchpad settings.

Click the Windows "Start" button and type "mouse" in the Search field.

Click "Mouse" to open the Mouse Properties window.

Click the "Device Settings" tab and click "Enable" or "Disable." If a confirmation message pops up, click "OK."

Hi buckpounder
Greetings! I am Vijay, an Independent Advisor.

Windows Key+i > Devices > Touchpad > Toggle Touchpad to OFF

If above doesn't work for you > Windows Key+X > Device Manager > Under Human Interface Devices, right click touchpad > Disable device
Same thing you would need to do under Mice and other pointing devices > Synaptics pointing device

If above doesn't work, while starting your computer, depending upon your make and model, you will need to press a function key to get into BIOS. You should disable this in BIOS.

If none of above work, let me know the model of your HP computer.

Sincerely yours,
Vijay A. Verma @ http://www.eforexcel.com/

HP Windows 10 laptop - Can't turn off touchpad

So I just got a new (well, refurbished or "renewed") HP Windows 10 laptop and I can't turn off my touchpad.

 

Here are my specs:

Processor: AMD A6-9225 RADEON R4, 5 COMPUTE CORES 2C+3G 2.0 GHz

Installed memory (RAM): 8.00 GB (7.47 GB usable)

System type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor

Pen and Touch: Touch Support with 2 Touch Points

 

I've tried going to the device manager and uninstalling the touchpad driver under "Mice and other pointing devices". I don't have a "disable" option and I'm a little hesitant to choose the "Delete the driver software for this device" because I want to be able to turn it back on if I don't have a wireless mouse available.

 

I've also tried going through the Control Panel and clicking on the Mouse Properties, but there's no way I've seen to disable my touchpad through that. I've seen how-to tutorials talk about a "Device Settings" tab on the Mouse Properties window, but I don't have that, only:

 

Buttons

Pointers

Pointer Options

Wheel

Hardware

 

Can anyone tell me how to turn off my touchpad while still being able to turn it on again, please?

 

Thanks!

Arlothia

How to disable trackpad for HP Elitebook 840 G5

According to the drivers page it appears the Synaptics in your PC is for the fingerprint sensor. Either the touchpad isn't Synaptics-brand and/or the driver didn't install correctly. Try to install this driver then look in Mouse Settings or look for HP touchpad app in Start menu or Control Panel (under HW usually, otherwise change view to Large Icons) https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/swdetails/hp-elitebook-840-g5-notebook-pc/18491271/swItemId/ob-216153-1

Alternatively you could check BIOS (usually F9 or F10) to see if you can disable it there. Sometimes there is also a Fn key dedicated to it. Here is another HP article on disabling their 'clickpad'. Don't ask me how they are different lol https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04648748#AbT2

How to Unlock the Touchpad on an HP Laptop

What to Know

  • Synaptics Touchpads: Double-tap the top-left corner to disable and enable.
  • Alternatively, in Device Manager, manually disable your touchpad Pointing Device.
  • HP laptops have different methods of disabling and enabling the touchpad.

This guide explains the various ways with which you can unlock and lock the touchpad of your HP laptop. It is quite dependent on which laptop you have and whether you have the latest touchpad drivers installed, so you may need to try more than one method.

How to Turn on the Touchpad on HP Laptops

HP laptops have long offered various options for turning off a touchpad should you not want it to get in the way of your typing, gameplay, or various other activities—especially when using an external mouse. That does mean it's possible to lock your HP laptop accidentally. If that happens, here are a few different ways to unlock a laptop with a touchpad.

HP Laptops with Synaptics Touchpads

If you have an HP laptop with one of its newer Synaptics Touchpads and the latest drivers installed, you may be able to unlock the touchpad with a quick press. Just double-tap in the top-left corner of the touchpad. You may see a little light in that same corner turn off. If you don't see the light, your touchpad should now be working—the light displays when the touchpad is locked. You can also disable the touchpad again in the future by performing the same action.

Some Synaptics Touchpads also respond to a long, five-second press in the top-left corner, so if the double-tap doesn't work, try that instead.

HP Laptops with a Touchpad Switch

Some older HP laptops include a dedicated switch next to the touchpad to toggle it on and off. You'll spot it through its indicator light. If the small LED displays either yellow, orange, or blue, then the touchpad is locked. Double-tap the sensor to re-enable the touchpad. As with Synaptics Touchpads, this should turn the touchpad back on. You can lock it again later, using the same method, at which point the light should turn on.

HP Touchpad Locked and Unresponsive? Try This

If the above steps for enabling the touchpad don't work, you can try a couple of additional methods that should work across all HP laptops and operating systems.

Control Panel

You can access touchpad settings in the Control Panel.

  1. Open the Windows Settings menu by pressing the Windows Key+I

  2. Select Devices.

  3. Select Touchpad from the left-hand menu.

  4. Toggle the Touchpad on.

Device Manager

Another place to view touchpad settings is in the Device Manager.

  1. Search for Device Manager in Windows search and select the corresponding result.

  2. Expand the Mice and other pointing devices section.

  3. Select your HP touchpad.

  4. Select the Driver tab.

  5. Select Enable Device if you want to enable the touchpad, or Disable Device, to disable it.
