Answers :

This is a really common problem thats not actually a problem.
Go to trackpad settings and make sure tap to click is off.
Most laptops allow you to tap the track pad to act as a mouse button, try it go to an icon tap the trackpad youll see that the icon highlights as if you are actually left clicking.
When your typing the trackpad senses your arm or wrist occasionaly and thinks your tapping the mouse, thus moving the cursor.
So go into trackpad settings and turn off tap to click.
Control panel keyboard settings make sure all your settings are correct

The cursor jumps somewhere else on the screen as I am typing causing me to stop typing and put the cursor back at the end of the text which I am writing. If I don't spot it straight away it can mean I have typed a few words in the wrong place. When this happens continously it is very irritating not to mention time consuming in having to delete words and move the cursor back to where it should be. Any ideas anyone?
