How to disable the touch mouse on your laptop with Windows 11

The panel or touch mouse of a laptop with Windows 11 basically allows us to interact identically with the operating system as we would with an external mouse

The only drawback that we may find with the touch panel is that we can mistakenly press it when typing on the integrated keyboard of your laptop, which is why many users wonder how to disable the touch panel of their laptop with Windows 11.

The touch mouse integrated by default in notebook computers is located in the bottom center of the notebook, just below the integrated keyboard. This proximity is what makes it possible for us, by mistake, to press or move the mouse using the touch panel with the palm of our hand.

This, together with the fact that an external mouse can also be used on any laptop, many users prefer to disable the integrated touch panel so that it does not interfere with their actions and control and use the cursor using an external mouse in Windows 11.

Fortunately Windows 11 allows you to completely disable the touch mouse integrated in your laptop so that it does not interfere with our writing. In addition, the best thing is that this configuration is totally reversible, that is, we can activate this function at any time even if we do not have an external mouse since Windows 11 also allows us to control the mouse cursor using the keyboard number of our computer.

That said, below, we show you step by step how to activate or deactivate the touch panel of your laptop with Windows 11:
