    Issue with keeping touchpad OFF on my laptop


    Hi,

    I'm not a touchpad user, I like to use a mouse. So I have this laptop at work, It's an HP.... so every morning I have to go to the pad prefs and turn it off. Quite annoying. I have tried every trick I could find on line including adding lines in the Registry to no avail.. the stupid thing is reengaged when I boot in next. I even contacted Synaptics and their advice was not useful. Is there a sure fire way to turn this thing off permanently??

    Typical info is that yes, it's Windows 10 and yes it's completely up to date!

    Thanks so much,
    Richard
