You will need to install the ATK driver off the Asus website. For your touch pad, if you have the driver installed. Go into control panel and search for mouse and pointer settings. On the last tab of this window is a tick box to disable touch pad as soon as a mouse is plugged in.
Sorry for brief reply I'm on my mobile. Any more questions just ask.
I'm adding a picture to show how to change the mouse settings. this will only work one the driver is installed.
i will also add the link to show you where to get the drivers, for you hot keys you will need the ATK driver, and for your touch panel the Elan touch panel driver. you can download both from this site (
) once you have installed and done a reboot follow the picture to change the settings to suit your needs.
