Windows 7: remedy for 'volatile' insertion point with text writing?

remedy for 'volatile' insertion point with text writing?

hi

Has anyone encountered a text-writing issue where one is engrossed in what is being typed without realizing that the insertion point has jumped from sequence--i.e., the latter part of a word currently being typed has located itself after a term on a prior line (the issue always entails a 'jump' back to prior written text)?

I've observed it occurring--the insertion point just reverts/jumps to a prior line--and not always at the beginning of a line, either.

Q: is it feasible that the keyboard has a (for lack of a better term) 'sensitivity' control, to make the keyboard less hyper?

Thank you

Dean

Is this a laptop?

hi

yes--and my desktop does not act up this way...

My first thought was that I might have inadvertently struck another key while typing--thereby causing the 'jump' back through the text--but that is doubtful.

I can type hundreds of words on the desktop without a false move on the computer's part...


thanks for any ideas...

The trackpad often causes this, even if it really seems you aren't bumping it. Newer laptops often have a switch or button for turning on and off the trackpad. I do this on my laptop when typing anything lengthy.

Does this happen with all programs (e.g. Notepad, Word, etc.)?

I have that problem with the "Notes" section in VMware Workstation (only).
