So my onboard keyboard is screwed up so I bought a small, thin external keyboard to put on top of it to use instead. The problem is, that doing so presses keys beneath it on the onboard keyboard. So I uninstalled the onboard keyboards in device manager. But they keep reinstalling themselves upon restart. I had this issue years ago and remember creating some kind of hotkey to disable the onboard keyboard every time I restarted, but I can't remember what I did?
Is there some way to "permanently" uninstall the onboard laptop keyboard, or create a hotkey that I can use after restarting, so I can keep the new external keyboard on top of the onboard keyboard without issue?
I saw this threadhttps/forums.tomsguide.com/threads/laptop-keyboard-wont-uninstall-in-device-manager.455992/ with a similar problem, where people say there's basically nothing you can do. But I know that not to be the case, because about 10 years ago I remember adding some kind of small program that would run and disable the onboard keyboard. surely there's a way to still do this?
