Is there a way I can easily and quickly turn on / off a notebook touchpad? I have a convenient keyboard on my laptop and a big touchpad right under it and when you type you can accidentally touch the touchpad which causes random text selection/deletion and so on.

The laptop is Acer Aspire E-15 E5-576G-35Z3. I tried to download the Synaptics touchpad driver for this laptop but the official Acer website doesn't provide it and the Synaptics website says that a vendor should provide you with the touchpad drivers.

  • Don't you have a shortcut to disable the touchpad on your keyboard?

  • @CaldeiraG Seems I don't have it. On my laptop at the home, there is a special little pit, double tap on that disables a touchpad for some time. But I don't see something similar on this one. How might this thing look?

  • Looking at some pictures of the keyboard can you please try Fn+F7?

1 Answer 1


Looking at some pictures of the keyboard I found a symbol referring to the touchpad which is Fn+F7. (the image is from the International keyboard but the Fn hotkeys are the same in the Russian keyboard).

That should disable the touchpad.
