You need to explain what software you are using.
Check to see if you are in view mode or edit mode, and that your cursor is in an edit area.
If you are getting a hand, then you are in view mode, or in a spot that is not an editable area.

I am trying to input numbers on a form but my cursor turns into a tiny hand prohibiting me from doing so. How do I change this?


That says that either it is not in edit mode or its busy loading or that container is for Alphabets not for numbers.

Original remote lost. have universal remote. cannot program TV


On the right hand side of this television there are panel buttons. It appears that your son in law knocked the tv out of the correct input. Press the input button in order to cycle through the 5 inputs. Typically pressing the input button on the side panel of a television and pressing it again and again and again will make it change inputs. Universally the buttons on the tv panel function as follows: Channel up moves the cursor up. Channel down moves the cursor down. Volume + moves the cursor right. Volume - moves the cursor left.
Hope this helps

there is also a "feature" on the IE toolbar called "panning hand". Click that to turn your cursor back to the arrow or vertical bar when using IE to compose email. I think Alt + G toggles it too.

I have an Acer laptop. While typing the cursor suddenly jumps up a couple of lines, or suddenly may highlight a phrase, causing instant erasure of the previously typed material. Why does cursor continually...


your palm might be hitting the touchpad causing your mouse cursor to move and jump around... try to type with only your fingers hitting the keys and the back of your hand raised and not hitting any part of your laptop... hope this helps....

My keyboard keeps writing out of order - putting words infront of stuff i have previously typed - toshiba Satellite laptop


Does the laptop have a touchpad below the keyboard?
Usually the hand position when you type is such, that it's very easy to involuntarily lighlty touch the touchpad with the base of your thumb, usually the right one, when you move the hand over the touchpad, mostly in the up-left direction.
This causes the cursor to move to some place up and to the left, resulting in the next characters you type being put in that place :)
Try to keep your hands a little bit more above the touchpad when you type. Also, many touchpad drivers have settings for ignoring light touches/drags, try looking into these settings in your pointing device properties.

I am on windows XP. I have copied a PDF form on to my local disk. PDF document properties indicate that Filling of form fields is allowed yet I cannot fill the form fields. What do I have to do?


Try this first.

Look at your cursor. If it is a Hand, you have selected the hand tool. If not, go and select the Hand tool.

With the "Hand Tool" selected, go over one of the fields that you can type.

1. If the cursor remains as a "Hand", then the fields are NOT fillable. It can be printed, but NOT filled.

2. If the cursor changes from a "Hand" to a vertical line ("I"), -the one you see when you can type- then the problem is different. If this is the case post again and we can continue the search.

Child Lock is on and I am second owner of tv with no code


This function will block out the picture and sound of the selected channel or video input.
It can also be used to keep the TV from being viewed for a scheduled time period that you set.

Use the number buttons to select access code.

Use CURSOR G or H to highlight function and then press the SELECT button.
To change the access code number, select Change Access Code. Enter a new four digit key number you prefer.
Select CHANGE ACCESS CODE to change factory preset code (0000) to your preference.
When ENGAGE LOCK is selected, SET CHANNEL LOCK, SET INPUT LOCK, and SET FRONT PANEL LOCK can be set individually.
When SET CHANNEL LOCK is turned on, the picture and sound for the chosen channel will be blocked out.
When SET INPUT LOCK is turned on, the picture and sound for all video inputs and the picture and sound for channels 3, 4 will be
blocked out.
When FRONT PANEL LOCK is turned on, all buttons on the Front Panel will be deactivated, except the Power button.
When TV TIME LOCK is turned on (r TIME LOCK) you can set the BEGIN and END times (CURSOR E) and the TV
cannot be viewed during that time period (Set clock first). Use CURSOR G or H to highlight ONCE (TV will time out one time
only), DAILY (TV will time out every day), WEEKLY - SUN~WEEKLY - MON (TV will time out one time a week) or OFF (to disable
this function).
When MOVIE RATINGS is selected, you can block various types of movies and video tapes based on motion picture ratings. Picturein-
Picture will also be blocked automatically (see page 45).
When TV RATINGS is selected, various types of television programming based on a parental guide ratings will be blocked.
Picture-in-Picture will also be blocked automatically
If you forget your secret code, use the factory code 7777 to erase your key number. This will reset the secret code number back to the
factory preset 0000.
Press EXIT to quit the menu.

Cursor jumps erratically


Most likely, your wrist is gently touching the touchpad, and your computer is interpreting it as a 'tap,' and it so happens your cursor was located several lines up.
Or if you use a separate mouse, is it on a wood or uneven surface? This will cause it to jump up those few lines and again, your wrist (or if you have big hands like I do, the bottom of your thumbs) will tap it.
