When I'm typing an Email the cursor seems jump back to what I previously wrote. I have to stop and backspace to elimanate the words so i can continue typing. This annoying and time consuming. The words get mixed into the earlyer writings. Whats causing this?

I have the same issue and did contact customer support. After a long time working on my laptop it seemed to work better, but today I have the same issue. I had to restart and it's better. Will I have to do this all the time? It's time consuming and frustrating.

Hello ConnieFoggles,

 

This can be common if contact with the touchpad is accidentally made whilst typing.  One thing you can do is temporarily disable the touchpad by pressing FN+F1 and see if that helps.

I tried that...numerous times. And I'm still having a problem with the cursor. It's as if I don't have control over it. Any other suggestions?

 

I'm totally frustrated with this.

@ Hi conniefoggles

 

I do understand the inconvenience about the issue on your cursor.  I just want to know if you have tried covering the touch pad with a piece of cardboard or paper while typing on the keyboard to see if in fact the touch pad is being touched while typing just to further isolate the issue..
