If you’re finding your Windows 10 touchpad tricky to use, there are a lot of ways to adjust the settings to make it easier to use. Start by typing Touchpad Settings in the search box and click on the result.

Touchpad settings

When the settings open, you could decide to turn your touchpad off completely. If you always use a mouse, it’s a good option. You can also untick the box next to Leave the touchpad on when a mouse is connected. If you sometimes use the touchpad, you could uncheck the box.

If you find that the touchpad sometimes gets away from you, change the speed of the touchpad, click and drag the handle under Change the cursor speed.
