How can I disable some of the features that are on my touchpad? If I drag my finger right to left across the right side of the touchpad, a menu pops out from the side of the screen, and I have to click away to get it to go away. If I don't, then the whole desktop app menu pops up. It's annoying and really interferes with productivity. I got this computer from my employer.

Thanks Phillip. It looks as though I'm really just annoyed with the operating system, and how it interacts with the touchpad. The sensitivity is fine, but the home screen pops up in the most inconvenient times, along with the time, options from the right side of the screen, the upper left-hand corner where other open applications are, etc. I want to disable these shortcuts to enable me to use the entire keyboard, touchpad, etc. without interruptions.
