Question about Computers & Internet
All too often when I am typing an email message in Microsoft Outlook on my Dell Precision M6300, the cursor position jumps back a position or down a line or two, inserting itself out of position. I then bring it back to where it belongs using the arrow keys. I can find no correlation between my keystrokes and when this happens. My wife has noticed the same thing on her Dell laptop. It never happened on my old desktop PC. Any explanation or suggestions?
I just fixed this problem on my Acer laptop. 1. Go into control panel & select Hardware and Sound 2. select mouse settings 3. click the Tapping tab 4. uncheck the Tapping box 5. Make sure that you apply the new settings. Now, when you type, your thumbs or palm will not be able to inadvertently double tap the touchpad, moving your cursor. I am very happy to get this problem solved.

Are you using windows vista? If so, that is a common problem with vista. The reason is the driver for the touchpad. Your palm may brush up against the touchpad while you are typing which moves the cursor all around. You can open up the properties for the touchpad (in control panel or by right clicking the icon next to the clock that corresponds to the touchpad and selecting properties), and play around with the sensitivity and palmtouch options in it as well as make sure you have the most up to date drivers available if you are using vista. Oh and one more thing, please give this solution a fixya rating. Thanks!
