So, how do I shut off the track pad on my ASUS X550CA Laptop?

The Track pad on a  laptop is a useful tool,  however, I found out early on,   it got to be more of a nuance when I tried searching for something on the internet.

YouTube, had several people who had different ideas, however since I was working with Windows 8.1 at the time, this being a tablet format nothing worked.

To give you an example,  I would try to type inside the search field, and I would end up with garbage as the text. This would then  delete itself and it got to be so frustrating. I went as far as switching to a large keyboard for a while.  I was at my wits ends and just thought that it was something I was going to have to deal with.

I feel the Lord lead me to the answer when I thought of giving it one last try on the internet. It was like there it was, so I figured well it wasn’t going to be easy, having to go through the Bios, my thinking was why there of all places. So, I gave it a shot and sure enough it was just what I needed. Thank You Lord Jesus.
