It will be Fn key + another. Look for a symbol.

By plugging in a mouse, you have effectively disabled the touchpad.

Why bother to touch the touchpad if you don't need it?

Fn + F7 or F9 are popular.

The touchpad killed was with FN + F3. thank goodness for that.

I was inadvertantly touching the pad with my hand as I typed, moving the mouse... Thank you Graham.
