How to turn off mouse on laptop when using wireless mouse


Answers :

Now depending on the model of your laptop, the procedure may defer. I will just show you the various basic ways available with most laptops.
1. Look around your touch pad (especially the area between it and the keypad). Some laptops have a button here that turns the touch pad (laptop mouse) on and off. If you see one just press it.
2. If you do not see this button. Then check your fn keys (They are usually labeled in a different colour, e.g. blue). Usually they are on the normal function keys. Look for the one that resemble a mouse figure. If you see it, you need to press it in combination with the Fn key; press the Fn key first. (The Fn key is usually near the Ctrl key). This will turn on and off your touch pad (laptop mouse).
Try going to the control panel, click the icon for your mouse, and then go to the hardware tab, highlight the laptop mouse, go to its properties and disable it.
