Some laptops don’t have dedicated buttons but you can use Function keys (like Fn + F5 on Dell computers) to toggle the state of your touch pad. In the case of HP laptops, you can hold the top-left corner of the touchpad for few seconds and it will disable the touch pad – repeat this to re-activate it.
New laptop computers either have a physical on/off button to easily disable the touch pad or there’s an icon in the system tray that lets you manage the various settings of the touchpad. If you don’t have that icon, you can go to Control Panel –> Mouse Properties –> Touch Pad to enable or disable the touchpad.
The touch pad can also be disabled through the device manager. Type devmgmt.msc in the Windows Run box to start the device manager, expand “Mice and other Pointing devices”, right-click and disable the driver entry that says Touch pad or likewise.

This is absolutely the best forum I have ever been involved with. I learn so much. I just found that "func" F3 turns on and off my touch pad on this MSI Notebook GX700. I have actually had a piece of tape holding a credit card over the pad for a couple years. Nothing mentioned in the very poorly written "owners manual".
LOOK AT THE FUNCTION KEYS. I ALWAYS FORGET THAT TOO!
I feel so dumb!
