Windows 7: Moving cursor on 3 monitors

Open the mouse settings in the control panel and navigate to the "Pointer Options" tab. Down at the bottom you'll see a checkbox that says "Show location of pointer when I press the CTRL key", check it. Now when you press the CTRL key a roughly 200 pixel wide circle forms around the cursor and sweeps in towards it. It's a small tweak, but it's oh-so-handy when you're staring at one corner of your monitor array wondering where the cursor went and it's all the way on the other side of your farthest monitor.

A cool tip, as I sometimes lose track of the cursor.

Why would my shift key be moving my cursor
When typing, my shift keys are moving my typing cursor. So, when I'm trying to capitalize or use a special character, the left shift key moves the cursor to the left and my right shift key moves it to the end of the sentence. My computer settings are correct and there are no active locks set...

Moving from Vista to W7 my cursor now jumps around
I have recently upgraded from Windows Vista to W7. Most things are working fine except that my cursor seems to be hyper-sensitive, jumps around without any apparent cause and makes using any typing programme a real chore as it will erase things onscreen if I don't watch every word I am typing or...
