    Hi
    I bought a laptop today and cannot figure out how to disable the built in mouse/tapping pad. I went into Conrol Panel and went to the 'Mouse' icon, but there is no category for 'devices.' Any suggestions? Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance!
    Cheers

    New or used? What make and model? What operating system? What tabs / settings / options are available? You need to provide more information.
