    Typing Issues with Win 10 64bit

    Apologies if this has already been asked/answered, couldn't find it after a quick search.

    When I type in Windows 10 on pretty much anything - chrome, open office, celtx (writing software) - the cursor will frequently jump to a random point, could be the middle of a word or the space between paragraphs. This is obviously quite annoying, even more so as I'm a writer and it means I can't do my job properly.

    Also, sometimes when I open a web page it will highlight sections of the page, like I've clicked and dragged across the page, even when I haven't.

    I've tried to update drivers but it says they're all up to date. I will try that again but any one with any suggestions, well, I'm all ears.

    It's happened about 5 times just typing this out and a new one just happened where it jumped to the 'additional options' box at the bottom like I'd clicked on a tick box (I hadn't). And no I'm not leaning on the touchpad or doing anything stupid like that. 100% software problem.

    Using an ASUS k55a laptop running windows 10 64 bit

    Thanks in advance

    I'd bet on the mouse pad. If you are touching it, even slightly it is causing the cursor to jump. Sometimes disabling Tap-to-click fixes this problem.

    Make sure you have downloaded and installed the driver for the mouse/touch pad.
