Synapticc Touch Pad Driver

Last Modified: 2016-11-23
I've recently upgraded a Dell Inspiron notebook to W7 professional.

I want to disable the touchpad when a Logitech wireless mouse is connected to the Inspiron.

When I accessed Mouse Properties via the Control Panel, Windows notified me that no Microsoft Mouse is detected, so I cannot modify the mouse behavior.

I then downloaded the Synaptics set of apps for modifying mouse behavior, but I can find neither instructions nor even any indication of which app to use.

Help Experts please.
