    What have you already tried? Have you done the 5 R's? Doing a software update or restore my solve this. Are you using a screen protector? Does it do it if you have the ipod on a table and you are using just one finger. Is the screen absolutely clean?

I had this same problem. I discovered by accident that it seems to have been a conflict between drivers for my Microsoft keyboard and Logitech mouse. I'd used the supplied disks to install both. When I removed those drivers and let Windows find the drivers within its own files, the problem healed itself. Just a guess, but it might be worth a try for you.

There's a glitch in the firmware. The best thing you can do is Restore, let it revert to backup. If it still does it after that, try Restore and treat as new. If you're still having the problem, try holding Alt when you click Restore and choose an earlier iPhoneOS. If you're running 2.1, update to 2.2. If none of that works, the iTouch is defective... call Apple or take it to an Apple Retail Store.

When typing, cursor jumps backward several spaces


Sounds like your mousepad is ghosting. This means it thinks you're tapping the mousepad as you type, which will make it type exactly where you nlast moved the curser to. First, try cleaning the pad thoroughly with a damp tissue, and dry it well... if that doesn't solve it, you could try adjusting the mousepad sensitivity controls on the control panel. Hope that helps.

How to Fix Windows 7 cursor jumps backward while typing Outlook messages.


Well, technically it is not moving it backwards, it is moving the cursor to wherever the 'pointer' is.
You need to STOP resting your palm(s) on the Touchpad.

When you touch it, it will move the cursor to wherever the 'pointer' is....which is likely where you started typing.

You can also turn-off the touch-pad if you will be doing lots of typing. This is done by pressing [Fn] and [F3].

The cursor jumps backward often while I type, and writes behind where I am, lines behind.


You're probably hitting the touchpad with the heel of your hand while typing. Many people do it without realizing it, and the computer is just moving the cursor to where it thinks you're telling it to go. If you're doing lots of typing, you may want to plug in a USB external mouse and turn off the touchpad. This eliminates the cursor jumping, and a regular mouse makes moving around a document and selecting text easier.

While typing a story, the curser will jump backwards, and if I don;t realise it, I am typing between a previous word. Sometimes the cursur disappears from the page completely, and I have to use the mouse...


What's happening is that your finger(s) are touching/dragging across the laptop's TouchPad
while you're typing,
and thus the cursor's position in the document is being randomly reset/repositioned
while you're typing.
Solution: disable your Laptop's TouchPad, and use a mouse for cursor control.
Solution: tape a 3x5 index card over the Touchpad while you're typing.
Solution: type on a computer with a real keyboard, not the chiclet-type keyboard you (and I) are using.

About a week ago I started noticing that when I used the letter y it would make my cursor jump backwards, sometimes a few spaces but sometimes several lines. What could be causing this? It only happens if...


Does your keyboard have a pointing device in the centre? (small button that is an alternative to using the touchpad)

If you have that then it is likely that you are touching it while typing and moving the cursor inadvertently.

You can disable that device, but I would need to know what make and model of laptop you have to advise further.

Happy to help if you reply here with a comment
