    Snakes & ladders.


    A most annoying thing that I am getting at the moment happens when I scroll up/down a web page it suddenly disappears only to reappear as a thumbnail in the top left of screen I then have to click the thumbnail which then develops into a battle which I loose because I just have not got the patience to play this unwanted game.

    I should have mentioned that it is also happening to documents or any other thing that I scroll and I use two fingers to scroll, it is something that is relatively recent.

    Sounds like you may have enabled a gesture when touch scrolling
    I don't use a touchpad but the links below may help

    One possibility might be this:
    Swipe three fingers up Show thumbnails of your currently running apps in Task View
    (albeit you mentioned 2- might be catching a 3rd, or too sensitive)
    Exactly which gestures are supported can be manufacturer specific.

    Best look through your touchpad options.

    Many thanks to you both it is the touch pad and it is extremely sensitive even set on minimum sensitivity and I must be touching it with an extra finger or thumb. Problem solved.

    There may be a sensitivity setting. However there are numerous variants of touchpad drivers and GUIs- e.g. Synaptics has at least 3. Here's one:

    Edison invented the lightbulb.
    Marconi invented radio.

    But the devil invented the touchpad. :)
