I need help.
I am getting used to single-clicking and not double-clicking. However wherever I leave the cursor, after a moment it will select whatever it is resting on. Which I find annoying. It will open applications if it was left on an icon or icon.
I spend a lot of time on forums, I click to respond and then in the text box, I begin typing a message with the text cursor. But wherever the mouse cursor is sitting, after a moment it will select something on it's own. For example in this text box, if I left the mouse cursor to hoover over the smileys to the right, then it will randomly put smileys in my text.
If I make sure to leave it inside the text box, it will jump my text cursor to wherever the mouse cursor is resting.
Whenever that happens in a block of text, say a paragraph, then suddenly my last sentence was pasted into a pre-existing paragraph. Which I find annoying.
I am having to focus a lot more on exactly where is the mouse cursor resting, and where is the text cursor located and has it jumped recently.
Can I make the mouse cursor stop clicking?
Typing this message, I am fighting with it as my typing keeps jumping into the middle of lines that I previously typed.
Hoovering seems to left-click, since a single left-click will select and/or open a link or application. Then hoovering opens applications. How do I stop this?
