The touchpad isn't listed in the mouse or other pointing devices. I cannot find where to disable it!

There is no key with a touchpad picture on it. Other quick keys aren't there either . There is the (fn) key but the F3 or F6 combination doesn't do anything either! Still need help.

I see this issue when folk don't install the Dell apps or uninstall them.
