8429Widget to disable touchpad
- Jun 2, 2009Hi!
Looking for a program that can temporarily disable the touchpad. My
hands brush against it all the time when I type and the cursors
dances all over the place. Typing in the air is a bummer. I don't
have the options in the mouse CP that I know some laptops come with.
"Disable when mouse is plugged in" would be perfect, but alas...
I've found two programs so far. I list them in case someone else can use them.
Virtual Touchpad Cover. A keyboard shortcut toggles the touchpad
on/off. Works OK, only it disables the mouse too, which wasn't what I
was looking for.
TouchFreeze. This one automatically disables the touchpad when you
type. It works very well.
TouchFreeze is pretty great, actually. But I'm a poor typist and
occasionally stop to find a key or just to think. When that happens I
more often than not type in the air when I start again. So, does
someone have something cool up their sleeve?
P.S. to Dave. I got an Asus. EEE 1000H. Love it already! :-)
