I have switched off the touchpad on my Macbook Air because it's to annoying while typing and using a mouse. But it could happen that the paired mouse is not available, leaving the notebook without any pointing device.
Is there (and how) any possibilty to switch touchpad on and off simple by keyboard strokes?
Or how do I get into the relevant settings section if I have no pointing device?
yes I have looked multiple times, there is nothing touchpad relatate their (at least I can't see it). That might or might not related to the fact, that on my keyboard is no key for switching the trackpad on and off.
I checked it on my other notebook, an ASUS Pro HAS an extra key on the keyboard for switching trackpad on and off, and therefor didn't need any special shortcuts for it - but also this machine has nothing in shortcuts...
You need to read further down past that part. His switch doesn't work anyhow and there is a solution given to the problem . You need to read the whole page, not just the beginning and stop. If you page down someone answers him on how to assign keys to the touchpad using one of the FN keys
