Free Utility Disables Trackpad While Typing

Written by BobW on May 19th, 2010

If you have used a laptop computer you have probably run into this problem. You are typing on your laptop and your wrist accidentally touches the trackpad. Of course, you don’t realize it until you look back at your screen and see that you have just deleted a section of your code or accidentally overwritten your last 20 minutes of work in your Word document. If this has ever happened to you, then you will love this free utility, Touchfreeze.

Touchfreeze is a small, free utility that automatically disables the trackpad while you are typing. When you stop typing, it re-enables the trackpad. There is nothing to configure. It is tiny, requiring only 596K of RAM. Touchfreeze does its job and lets you do your job.
