    Most laptops come with touchpads that let users control the mouse cursor and buttons on the device. Newer versions support even more features, usually in the form of taps, drags or other gestures.

    While that is handy in situations where no mouse is connected to the device, it may not be required or even desirable when a mouse is connected to the laptop.

    Touchpads have come a long way, but they may still interfere with specific activity on a machine. You may move the cursor accidentally for instance while typing, or they may interfere with games that you play.

    Usually, it is better to use the touchpad or a mouse, but not both at the same time. While you may only use the touchpad and no mouse at all, you may prefer to use a mouse for some activity. If you ever tried to play a first-person shooter with a touchpad, for instance, you may have come to the realization that this does not work well at all quickly. The same may be true for other activity such as using image editing programs, or working with files in Explorer (e.g., drag and drop).
