Mouse: How do I disable Windows drivers?

Q: Mouse: How do I disable Windows drivers?

I have a mouse, the Razer Abyssus, which comes with its own drivers. The default Windows mouse controls seems to be conflicting with the Razer drivers. Both drivers seem to be active, and the settings available in both are similar. For example, I can control the pointer movement speed in my Windows mouse settings and also in my Razer settings. They do not interect in a predictable way, though. Sometimes when I change the pointer speed setting in one driver, the same setting in the other driver will automatically change in a seemingly random way.

Is there a way to disable the Windows 7 drivers, or limit them so that I don't have these duplicate settings?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Dear friends I've got a big problem.

My computer at my work has Multi-screen, I've got 8 Monitor on my computer and I use them all to my work --the Primary is my desktop and the other 7 is for informations to my clients at work.

Now here is my problem,
When I'm going the mouse to taskbar over the Thumbnails (I want to right click...and Close or Maximize-minimize) all the other Windows are getting "Disappear" --Minimize
And I don't want my other monitors to get Minimize!! I only want to close-minimize-maximize the selected Window and nothing else! I don't want my clients to see an empty screen

Is there any trick to change it?

I have a Logitech MX I downloaded special driver from Logitech - the Logitech Gaming Software This let's me give it a default dpi and I can change the dpi buttons to do something else Problem is that windows Default 10 broken mouse drivers after about a minute the mouse gets stuck for a second and suddenly those settings are forgotten Even though LGS is still running When I open it Default windows 10 mouse drivers broken up Default windows 10 mouse drivers broken it 'remembers' them again LGS settings are always the same ones I put in but only temporarily Even worse after my inputted settings are forgotten the mouse keeps randomly getting stuck and changes the dpi I think there is some sort of a conflict between the default drivers and the LGS One of the problems is also that when I uninstall LGS it goes back to the default drivers And weirdly the default drivers do have the dpi function - the buttons scale it either up or down But I have no idea where I can change what they do it's not in any windows settings I could find This is incredibly annoying Any ideas

Hello there, I was just wondering if there was a group policy feature and/or free software available to totally disable use of the mouse or move it to the corner of the screen at startup. You see, my teammates and I are creating a digital kiosk as part of a school project which uses a web page as the layout. The center of the page houses the daily announcements, which scroll using Javascript. However, if the mouse hovers over the announcements, the Javascript picks up on this and stops scrolling. My goal is to prevent the pointer from being visible.

Any ideas?

Thanks very much.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
What Lenovo model do you have and operating system installed?  Example Ideapad 100, Lenovo Z50..... Windows 8..... Windows 10.
If your laptop has the ability to disable the touchpad when a mouse is plugged in, that option will be found in the settings / properties for the touchpad.  I have a couple of older Lenovo laptops using Windows 7 and 8 where the touchpad software / driver will allow disabling.  Where as my newer Lenovo laptops with Windows 10 does not have that feature.  The disabling is really dependent on the software / drivers for your model.

I work for a library and all I want to do is completely disable the right mouse button in Windows XP on public access computers (but allow me to login as administrator and enable/disable it again). I figured Windows would have something like this built in, but it doesn't. I figured there would be a freeware program that could do this, but I can't find one. Some mouse drivers allow you to disable the right mouse button, but not for the mice I have. Do you know of some obscure Windows XP registry setting that would allow me to disable the right mouse button (in all contexts), or of a simple freeware utility that would allow me to do this?

I have to unplug and plug back in the usb mouse to keep it working.
if I have the adaptor for the normal mouse port it won't work at all.

so i've been using the kb for almost a week now. (help me techsupportguys! hehe)

use the TAB button to move to each link in a page and to the address bar etc.
hold shift and tab to go backwards.

use cursor controls to scroll in a page. (you may need to tab to get to the scrollable area)

while holding the ALT button, press tab and you can switch between windows. a little window pops up and you can go to the window you want if you have several open.

if your kb has a start button, pressing it will pull up the start menu and you can use your cursor controls to do stuff there. There's a key between the right side alt and ctrl (I don't know what it's called) that I does what my right mouse button does. ESC key to close that feature if it opens.

and of course ctrl/alt/delete to bring up task manager and you can close programs that way too.

Hey people,

My grandmother has recently started using a computer and has trouble working the mouse. Whenever she tries to click, she is unable to hold her hand still and moves the mouse while clicking, otherwise known as dragging. Therefore, opening files, clicking on images etc. is impossible as she only drags them to another position...

Is it possible to disable dragging on a mouse? Or probably more accurate, is it possible to change the settings such that the click-action happens 'on-release' instead of 'on-click', which would result in the same disabling of dragging.

Hello Laurens one possibility mate is to enable as in my pic. Control Panel > Mouse > see pic

If you click on say a file and then start to move it and release the click button the object will carry on moving until you click on it again as and where you want it.

It works with my machine but it does need that initial tiny bit of movement to keep it locked. I hope this might be of some use to you both.
Sorry missed a second pic you can adjust the length of time to hold the click down see pic 2

hi yiiyyii,

there should be a setting in your mouse properties control panel. labeled "enable tap to click" (or something similar).

since you wish to disable the feature, I assume that you're "clicking" by accident. you can probably solve that problem by reducing the touchpad sensitivity (same control panel).

personally I can't do without that feature when using my laptop. I don't have the patience to move my finger over to the buttons

Hi, just bought myself a netbook running windows 7 and only one thing gets me down, the mouse pointer focus. When I'm typing on my blog it gets frustrating when I suddenly start typing in the midst of existing text, or links get clicked, because the focus has changed to the pointer and not where the cursor is!
Is there anyway to stop the focus following the pointer until I click where I want it to be?
Not used to this as I usually run a desktop.
Help please!

many thanks, Lol

A:How do I disable mouse focus on a Netbook?

This is probably caused by the touchpad Tap-to-click being enabled and you are accidentally brushing the touchpad while typing. I always disable Tap-tp-click so I have to use the touchpad buttons to click, just like a normal mouse.

If there is a touchpad icon in the System area of the Taskbar, right click on it and see if there is a Tap-to-click selected. If not, or no icon is present, open Control Panel then Mouse and see if you can find a way to turn it off.

If that resolves the problem good, if not you can turn it back on again.

I am using Windows 7 Professional 64 bit on three Dell Vostro 420 desktops and a Dell laptop. I know that Microsoft recommends that Windows Update is set to Automatic where the updates are downloaded and installed each night at 3 a.m. I have my machines set for Automatic Updates.

I have discovered that the Automatic Update has replaced a few of the older Dell installed drivers (sound card, etc.) with newer Microsoft drivers that do not have the same functionality as the original Dell drivers which I want to keep. I have downloaded from the Dell site and re-installed some of the Dell drivers.

My question - if I am using Automatic Updates is there a way to tell Automatic Updates that I only want the Microsoft files updated and not the "non" Microsoft files such at the Dell drivers, my nVidia driver, etc. updated as I want to control those driver updates myself?

Hello everyone

I am trying to disable the line highlight when the mouse cursor hovers a file or a folder in Explorer (Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit).

I am not interested in a partial line highlight, I want to get completely rid of that light blue highlight that follows the mouse cursor.

Can anybody suggest a workaround?

Should it be impossible to disable, is there at least a way to change the highlight color from light blue to transparent?

I use an external USB mouse most of the time. I must disable the touchpad via control panel each time I start or restart the laptop. I want to disable the touchpad except when I wish to reactivate it for temporary use without the external mouse. The system is a new HP Pavilion dv6 with Windows 7. The touchpad is a Synaptics TouchPad V8.1.

A:[SOLVED] Disable touchpad w/ external mouse

Usually there is a touchpad icon in the lower right corner of the Taskbar. You might find a setting there to disable the touchpad. Some laptops have an on/off button just above the touchpad, but you can accidentally turn it on.

You could also disable the touchpad in Hardware Manager. This is a more "permanent" solution, because you would have to go back into Hardware Manager in order to re-enable it.

No option to disable your Synaptics Touchpad when you plugin a USB mouse? The function is there but is disabled in the registry. Click the link and scroll down to message #9. Make the change, reboot and the auto disable works immediately if you have a USB mouse plugged in. Making the change in HKLM didn't work for me but HKCU did the trick. Navigate to the Synaptics settings page and the option to disable is now there. No credit due here, just passing it on to help others.

I've having a problem with my Logitech G5. After reinstalling Vista my mouse has mouse acceleration even though it is disabled in mouse>properties.

I am 100% sure it is the default mouse drivers installed by vista. However I do not know how to disable it from being installed when I plug the mouse in. If I can disable the auto-install, I can use a PS/2 mouse to install Logitech's driver and then plug back in my G5.

How can I disable auto driver installation for USB mice (or a different solution)?

A:USB Mouse auto installed driver, disable?

I would think if you install the mouse driver made for the mouse then it would load that driver instead of the default vista driver?

hi is there a way to auto disable the touch pad when an usb mouse connected to the machine? and auto enable it again once the usb mouse is unplugged?

A:Auto disable touch pad when USB mouse connected

Hi Akuswara, welcome to the Eight Forums.

Most touchpads allow this setting, it can be found in Mouse Properties. This example is for Synaptics touchpads:

Open Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > MouseSelect the Device Settings tabSelect Disable internal pointing device when external USB pointing device is attachedClick OK to save settings
That's it. Now every time you connect a USB mouse, the touchpad is automatically disabled. As soon as USB mouse is disabled or disconnected, the touchpad will be enabled again. Depending on Notification Area settings you'll get a notification (screenshot above, at bottom) every time touchpad is disabled or enabled.

any thoughts?

A:Touchpad wont disable when using external (usb) mouse

First thought: check the Asus website and see if there is an updated Synaptics driver.

Second thought: go to Device Manager and uninstall the touchpad, including the driver (if asked). Restart and then re-install the driver, then see if the setting will stick.

The Synaptics shoudl have added it's own Control Panel, or added to the Mouse properties in the Control Panel and created an icon in the System Tray.

The Gateway site lists both the Synaptics and Elantech drivers for the laptop, which touchpad does the laptop say you have?

Also according to the manual which is also at the link above you should be able to press FN +F6 to disable the Touchpad, but you must have the correct touchpad drivers installed and the LaunchManager installed for that to work.

Basically what i'm asking, is the driver contingent on the startup program, or does it run otherwise via a service or something of the sorts. I figure since I never interact with those startup apps, if they can be disabled, I will disable them.

After a recent Windows update (I am using Windows 10), I have found that there is now acceleration on my built-in trackpad input. That is, the distance my on-screen cursor moves for a given amount of movement of my finger depends on the speed at which I move my finger. This is undesirable.
Normally, mouse acceleration is caused by enabling the "Enhance pointer precision" setting in the mouse settings section of the control panel. However, I have this setting disabled.
Is there any way I can disable this mouse acceleration? Thank you in advance.

Anyone any idea how to get the " Auto Disable Synaptics Touchpad when USB Mouse is connected" feature active again.  I found an old entry in a forum that referenced changing a setting in Registry to Hex 33 and implied that this would make the OPTION become visible in the Mouse settings in Control Panel.  But  it appeared to simply disable the touchpad ALL the time.So I assume Synaptics have changed things since this 'fix' was posted in 2009 I think. .
I have W7  XPS,  and Driver version for Synaptics Touchpad.  Cheers

A:Auto Disable Synaptics Touchpad when USB Mouse is connected


All - I've read through this and many forums and have found no solution. I figured it out on my own, so I am happy to share with you!
This solution applies to those who do not have a touchpad disable button on an F key at the top of your keyboard and have the Synaptics driver that does not show the option to disable the touchpad when the external device is present. This also applies to those where the registry key update does not work (as it did not for me).
Here's the solution.

1. Go to the Dell website and get the latest driver for your touchpad. Install it.
2. Once installed, go to c:\program files\synaptics\syntp in your windows explorer.
3. Open the program called DellTpad.exe (there is also one called DellTouchpad.exe -- don't use this one)

4. Once open, click Device Settings.

5. And voila, the old checkbox is there at the bottom! Just click to make this active and it works like a charm.

I've got a Dell Latitude D600 laptop, running Windows Professional XP. I recently upgraded to a larger hard drive and while that all went fine, I'm now noticing problems with my mouse cursor seemingly randomly jumping to different places on the screen - especially when typing.

What I get from researching this problem, is that the touchpad is the common culprit. Since this laptop has the built-in keyboard pointer mouse, which I use in favor of the touchpad, disabling the touchpad won't be a huge hardship. It seems improbable, but I'm unclear on how to disable my touchpad. I know you must do that through the Control Panel, but nothing about the Mouse icon or the Device Manager seems to tell me enough on how to disable just the touchpad, since it seems like the mouse cursor and the touchpad are "integrated" - but I could be wrong. Suggestions?

A:Solved: Hopping Mouse Cursor - Disable Touchpad - How?

I had put my laptop into hibernation with my basic optical mouse plugged in. When I took the computer out of hibernation, the mouse lit up but did not work. The add new hardware wizard also popped up. Now windows doesn't recognize the mouse anymore, and it doesn't show up in the control pannel or the device mamager. It did not come with a driver CD and I cannot find drivers. Any suggestions?

A:PnP Mouse drivers gone

Try Windows Update...may have the driver you need there :-)

I have an optical mouse I want to use with my Dell laptop. Unfortunately when I plug into the USB port the system fails to recognise and install any drivers for the mouse.

The mouse is a novelty mouse - hence no specific details of manufacturer - but assume is pretty standard under the surface.

Any clues how to make the mouse work?
