Question about Computers & Internet

While I'm typing, the cursor moves to another place in the sentence or on the screen. This is a huge problem, because when I'm tying, the cursor goes back anywhere it wants to in the sentence, which mixes up the words, and I have to take time to backspace and fix the words, then reposition the cursor to continue where I left off. PLEASE HELP!! This is so annoying!

If you are a touch typist, your palm is resting on, or is brushing the touch pad, to solve the problem, you need to go in to the touch pad properties and DECREASE the sensitivity of the touchpad, so that only your finger will register movement. In effect you are reducing the touchpad area down to the point that only something the width of your finger will move the cursor, your palm is a bigger earea

Try an external mouse. I have seen this happen many times, and it is usually the users hand brushing the integrated laptop mouse pad.
If the external mouse works and the problem is not there, then try again with the internal pad, and watch to see if your hands or fingers brush against it.

If it still happens even with the external mouse and you are sure you are not touching the pad accidentally, then you may want to contact manufacturer of computer, check for updated USB drivers as well.

Your internal mouse runs off USB, and there is a possibility there may be a glitch there that could be resolved with an update.

When I type a sentence my curser will go back to the middle of the sentence and continue the sentence I am typing. Why?


Make sure you haven't got a watch/metallic bracelet on. It can interfere with the touch pad and move the cursor around unexpectedly.

Open the configuration panel (Classic view). Click on the mouse icon. Open the Cursor Options tab. Put a mark in the CheckboxHide Cursor during typing. You can also chek the box Show mouse cursor when I press thye CTRL key. You can also reduce the speed of the movement of the cursor. All these options are on the same TAB.

Cursor won't stay where I move it with the mouse


Hi, your first problem (and possibly second problem) sounds like it's the "Insert" function on your keyboard. I've seen this a lot. Find the Insert key on your keyboard. It's normally off to the right side with the Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys. When you have the problem, press the Insert key and then keep typing. It should toggle between the cursor moving with typing, and not. If this was helpful, please rate my response. Thanks!

Typing and keyboard issues


If you're using a laptop, it sounds like the trackpad is too sensitive, so that as you type, when your thumbs touch the pad, the cursor moves.  You can adjust this easily in settings/preferences.

Typing problem


the problem is where the mouse cursor is. When you begin to type have the mouse cursor as far down the page as possible the glide pad can pick up the slightest variant of pressure and move your text to the position where the mouse cursor is.
