How to Disable the Touchpad on a Dell Latitude D630

The touchpad on a Dell Latitude D630 laptop is a square pad just below the keyboard that you run your fingers across to navigate the computer. This can be a convenient feature, but many people like to connect a mouse to their laptops and use that instead of the touchpad. If you'd rather use a mouse than a touchpad, you can disable the pad via the "Mouse Properties" setting.
