Re: experience sharing: Using NVDA's Gestures to Switch the Touchpad

Hi Brian,

On my dell latitude 7490 it only turns off the touchpad and the left and right mouse buttons on the touchpad, not an external mouse. Windows 10 21H2 (x64) build 19044.1586

Although I think I know the answer, I need to ask someone who's using this technique to verify:  Does toggling the mousepad off affect only the trackpad portion, or also disable the left/right click hard buttons (if your mousepad uses these) or the "corner rock presses" left and right if these are used?

On mousepads where there are no literal left and right buttons nor does the whole trackpad allow downward pushes on the corners I have to imagine the whole thing would be turned off, but I'm not certain about when there are

actual "hard controls" for the mouse button presses.
