Tab S7+ Keyboard Cover - turning off the touchpad

In case anyone has tried following Samsung's instructions on how to disable the touchpad on the keyboard cover for the Tab S7+, the CORRECT keystrokes are Fn plus F6 - NOT F5 as is published everywhere I looked.

 

I got tired of chat experts telling me what to do and took a closer look at the Function keys, and realized that the litte icon under F6 was a touchpad...lo and behold, when I pressed Fn and F6 a little message popped up at the bottom of the screen: "Touchpad turned off"!!

 

Hope this helps...

This is an addendum to my previous post (read: rant); I just looked down at the keyboard of my Samsung Note9 Laptop, and was amazed to see that the F5 key controls the touchpad on the laptop...why would Samsung change the function keys on the laptop for the tablet????? This is like spellcheck for engineers...don't you bother to look and see what you did on you other products before moving ahead with a new one???? I can't even...
