Good luck with that ... it is a feature that cannot be turned off at least as far as I have had any success doing. I suggest you get a USB Track Ball - that worked for me, particularly when I dint have a place to run the mouse.

Dell Latitude Portable (2008 or newer) has jumpy cursor when typing


The Touchpad driver setup has options to keep the cursor from jumping while typing.
  1. Open the Touchpad Properties
  2. Touchpad Settings
  3. Enable the TouchCheck option, set the slider to minimum. (TouchCheck disabled the touchpad while typing. The Slider adjusts the delay. Minimum is .5 second delay, and each notch and additional .5 second delay)
Other options that may cause user problems are Draglock and Tap to Click under Touchpad Settings, and Scrolling and Zoom Settings of Touchpad Properties.

G netbook cursor moves way too fast but i find no way to slow it down. apparently the solution is not in the help file.


The touchpad is very small on this netbook, so the ratio between the finger movement and cursor movement has to be high in order to be able to move the cursor from one side of the screen to the opposite.

The cursor cannot be too slow, because you would have to glide the finger several times on the touchpad to move it across the whole screen.

However, the speed of the cursor can be adjusted in the mouse properties in Control Panel (Start->Settings->Control Panel->Mouse) in the Pointer Options tab. Experiment with different settings to find one that suits you.

With such small touchpad I would suggest forming a habit of rocking the finger on the touchpad to achieve better precision and control, instead of sliding it. Put a finger on the touchpad center and tilt it left/right, up/down - You'll see that the cursor can be controlled quite well this way. And if you need a larger movement, then it's enough to move the finger the normal way.

Good luck and please come back with a rating/testimonial if helped.

My pc desktop is moving left & right with cursor of mouse


It sounds like you have zoomed in on your screen image, so your screen is showing you only a portion of your desktop. In this situation, you move to a different region of the screen using the mouse cursor, as you describe.
You can zoom back out by holding down the CONTROL key while rolling your mouse's scroll wheel (or scrolling with two fingers on the surface of an Apple Magic Mouse).

I can't kill the zoom feature on my Acer Laptop. It is a pain.


Go to Control Panel > Mouse > Device Settings > Settings > Advanced Gestures > Pinch

(or alternatively right-click the Synaptics Pointing Device icon in your taskbar and select Pointing Device Properties)

Untick the box that says 'Enable Pinch'. This will disable the zooming.

Additionally, you might be suffering the same problem as I was which was I had no idea how to use the zoom and that's why I wanted to lock it. Having Google stuck on too-big-to-navigate-properly or too-small-to-read for days at a time prompted me to learn. I've since decided the zoom is useful and I'm keeping the feature enabled.

Here is what Synaptics have to say about the 'pinch' gesture:
The Pinch gesture delivers zooming functionality in many applications. The Pinch gesture can be used to perform the same function as a scroll wheel on standard Windows applications that support CTRL-SCROLL WHEEL zoom functionality.

To perform a pinch gesture, place two fingers on the TouchPad surface. Move them closer together or further apart. To zoom in, place your fingers on the TouchPad surface near to each other and then slide them apart. To zoom out, begin by placing your fingers apart and then moving them closer together.

The best zooming experience results when the finger tips of the two fingers are used for the gesture.

That will hopefully be of assistance if you want to learn how to use the zoom rather than disable it. It took some practice but I can do it now without a problem so can fix windows when I accidentally zoom on them.

Touchpad and cursor keys quit working


I used to get this problem. It is VERY annoying as you must know. try pushing the windows icon button in the top right corner of your keyboard(thats where it is on my keyboard)then use your arrow keys to scroll up to control panel, select mouse by using arrow keys and then use the tab and arrow keys to open the mouse keypad pagetab and push enable and enter key to turn it on.
IF WHEN YOU DO THAT AND your in the touchpad properties but there is no 'enable' and it says no hardware detected, then go into the same mouse window from the control panel and go to the hardware tab and either try to update driver or use the trouble shoot button.

Hope this helped =]
