How to deactivate touch screen of a laptop?

The screen of my laptop is cracked and the touch screen feature is jammed. I can not type in my laptop password and so I can not deactivate the touch screen feature. The cursor keeps on going around the screen. 

 

Is there a way to deactivate the touch screen feature without logging in? Can I deactivate the touch screen with just the hard ware or the keyboard short cuts? 

 

I was able to use the laptop before even with the cracked screen as I was able to deactivate the touch screen feature. But when I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 10, the touch screen feature went back again. How do I deactivate it again?

    You can delete the device out of device manager to disable it.

    Thank you for your response. However I can't get through with the laptop password. I can't get inside my computer because the cursor keeps on going around the screen and I can't type my password.
    Is there any way that I can disable the touch screen through a different hardware? Like a short cut key that I can type in the keyboard without going through the screen? Is there such a thing?

    Sorry, but I do not know how to disable the touch input without going into Windows. Maybe someone else in the community has had experience doing this?
