    cursor randomly jumps while typing in Office and Gmail


    Whenever I am composing an email or typing an office document the cursor randomly jumps to a location and I have to backspace and move to correct location again. I did a clean install of home premium a couple of weeks ago and all else is good. I didn't use office or compose an email right , away so I am not sure if it started right away, or after I installed Office 2013...

    I know this may sound strange and simple but I spent a couple hours troubleshooting a clients laptop with the same issue. Turned out they were resting/tapping the touch pad with their thumb/palm when they were typing. If yours is a laptop, try turning off the touch pad while typing or changing the sensitivity.

    Turn off Tap-to-click on the Touchpad. That should fix it.
