    You have to first go to the settings section of your gadget from the main menu options. From there you need to move to the ‘Language & input’ page. The ‘Keyboard & input methods’ option has to be selected as the next step. Then you must hit on the option named ‘Android keyboard’. Now you can enter the settings page of that particular option. You can see the ‘Gesture typing’ option from within that page. You just need to turn the option to OFF position to disable it.
