    Go to Control panel, device manager, Mice and other pointing devices, right click on the touchpad device and disable.

    The only option I have there is to uninstall it and I prefer not to do that because my wife sometimes uses it.

    Have you tried updating the driver - that may give you additional options.

    On some laptops its [fn] + [F9]

    mouse.

    So your mouse doesn't have this screen?

    p.s. This is the standard Windows 8.1.1 option but its not in Windows 8.
