Right click on the small square and select exit. or if there are no exit select option, fin the option to disable it.
to know the name of the box put your mouse on in(not click) and it will display the name.

the most method that work download tune up utilities(just google it), and install, you will see option for start up icon, you can disable the icon using the software.

After restarting my computer the cursor stopped responding to the mouse.

You're probably running Windows, and that's a common problem, and usually very easy to fix. If you are using a wireless mouse, remove the USB receiver, wait 10 - 20 seconds and put it back in. If that doesn't work, remove USB rec. , shut off mouse and go through a restart. Try restarting with them removed, if it doesn't work, try restart with them in and turned on. You can use keyboard commands to do this next part If that doesn't work, go into the Control Panel, system, device manager, mouse, right click ( lined square to right of space bar ) then properties, reset to default - The windows symbol beside space bar is the start menu, the arrows control scrolling through options or moving the page, TAB changes what the computer is focused on, ALT and F4 closes whatever program you're focused on - pressing it twice will cause a restart. And if your comp ever jams up, press CTRL, ALT and DELETE at the same time, opens task manager and unjams,,, usually. Hope some of that helped. Grimm

Need instructions to use the computer

Computers are omnipresent in most industries and jobs. Knowing how to use a computer is a necessary skill for almost anyone, regardless of your career. Computers are tools, and as with any tool, the best way to learn how to use them is to start with the basics

Most computers have a GUI (Graphical User Interface) that allows you to interact easily with the computer and software programs installed in it. The best way is with a hand-held device called a "mouse." Computer mice can come in many different shapes and designs, but most are oval-shaped with one or two buttons on top. Moving the mouse moves a corresponding cursor to pinpoint your location on the computer screen. With the cursor, you can operate most programs and use most files in the computer. Practice moving the mouse around to interact with the computer.
When you turn on a computer, it should boot into an operating system and present you with a view of the "desktop" displayed on the computer screen. Icons for the programs on your computer are visible on the desktop. The icons usually start in the upper left of the screen and are listed alphabetically. There is also usually a bar along the bottom of the screen called a task bar for performing certain functions.
One of the most important basic skills is how to click correctly using your mouse. PC mice have two buttons, right and left. The left one is used to act on something or move something, and the right button is used to open a menu with more information about things in your GUI. Try clicking on an icon on your desktop. If you left-click on it, it will select the icon; a right-click will make a menu appear. To open a program or file you will need to double-click with the left button. Double-clicking means clicking very quickly twice. Do this only to open programs or files. A single click will select files.
The other standard way to interact with your computer is with a keyboard. The letter layout is similar to that of a typewriter, but there are many more buttons. The most useful ones are the "backspace," "ctrl," space bar, and "shift" keys. The "backspace" key moves the cursor back one space when you are typing. The space bar creates a space. The "shift" key will make an uppercase letter if you hold it down while typing. The "ctrl" button is useful in many operational shortcuts.
One of the most popular things to do with a computer is go onto the Internet. Your computer may have this already set up, and if so there should be a browser installed. The three most popular browsers are Internet Explorer (IE), FireFox and Safari. There is probably an icon on your desktop for the browser. IE's icon looks like a blue cursive 'e', Firefox's is a blue globe encircled by a red fox, and Safari's looks like a compass. Double-click on the icon to open the browser. Near the top will be a long, white box called the location bar. This is where you type in the the address of a website. Then hit "enter" to navigate to the site.
Shortcuts make using computers much easier. Here are a couple.
When you have a file selected (it will light up or have a blue background), press the "ctrl" and the "c" key at the same time to make a copy of the file. When you want to put the copied material somewhere, press the "ctrl" button and the "v" key to paste the copy. This also works inside word processing programs to copy words or sentences.
In Windows, hit "ctrl," "alt" and "delete" at the same time to bring up a task manager, which will tell you what programs are running or which ones may be hung up and "not responding."

Whenever i type on my keyboard it does this weird thing where if i click in front of another word earlier in the sentence when i start typing it will replace what i am typing with what i was typing before....

On your key board to the right of the number pad is a button called insert. Open a test doc and see it work. Type some words and press this button, then move the cursor retype then press the button again, one way will replace letters, the other will add new text. Hope this helps.

No mouse, how do i do the things like highlight that i used to right click with

Does the laptop have a touchpad (usually centered on the keyboard below the space bar) with two buttons above it? Then drag your finger across the selection to highlight it. Then click the right button.

It may take some practice. I usually end up getting a finger to register as moving to a new point on the screen when I try to move up to the buttons.

If you are still more comfortable with a mouse, get a USB corded or wireless mouse. Connect the mouse to a free port and use as you normally do. (Wireless mice can be a little tricky when the batteries run down or the receiver and mouse lose their connection.) If you have limited ports, a USB hub will usually be fine for connecting a mouse.

I hope this helps.

(Note: some older laptops need the touchpad disabled to avoid confusion. With Windows, Start > Control Panel > Hardware > Device Manager)

How to use the space bar when typing on screen keyboard?

If you are typing with the mouse, just click the space once to give one space after a word or after a letter. There's no other method or no other way to give space without using the space bar of the onscreen keyboard.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How-to move cursor ?

If there is a black square in the middle below the keybord, that is what is called a glidepoint. You just use your finger to glide the mouse arrow around inside of that box. The bars are for the mouse buttons.
If you are like me, I like to hook up a regular mouse via USB and use the regular mouse instead.

I hope that I have provided the correct information that will assist you in the resolution of this issue. If you have any questions, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I have an HP Pavilion dv5224 laptop. pe I find that when I ty at a clip, things like what just happened (my cursor somehow jumps to another place in the para--from ty to 1st line pe). This happens pretty...

Does your laptop have touchpad that acts as a mouse if you don't have a mouse plugged in (it's usually directly below the spacebar)? If any part of your hand accidentally brushes that sensitive rectangular area, it will cause the mouse cursor to jump around.

There is usually a button you can push at the top of the rectangular touchpad to turn it off while you're typing. On my HP laptop it has a blue light, and when I push the button it turns red.
