Updating a cursor
Today I'm going to talk about one of the most irritating, annoying and frustrating problems I have ever encountered while using laptops. It doesn't matter what and where are you typing, you might be typing in Microsoft Word or a web browser or anywhere else.
I double-checked that my hands were not touching the touchpad accidentally.If you are using a laptop and facing similar problem, you can give this freeware a try using following link: and later operating systems come with a built-in option to prevent accidentally moving cursor while typing. Now you just need to change the value of "To help prevent the cursor from accidentally moving while you type, change the delay before clicks work" option. If it doesn't work for you, try to change its value to "Long delay".You can find this option in PC Settings (Metro Control Panel). Open Charms Bar by moving your mouse cursor to top-right or bottom-right corner of screen and then click on Settings option. Now click on "Change PC settings" option given at the bottom. It'll open Metro Control Panel or PC Settings page. It should permanently disable the annoying cursor jump problem.Resources consumed by cursors As I mentioned earlier, a cursor is a memory resident set of pointers -- meaning it occupies memory from your system that may be available for other processes.In fact I tried to type some text while looking at the keyboard and touchpad and still the cursor jumped to a different location.First I thought that its a problem in my laptop but then I searched on Internet, I found there are many people who have faced the same problem while using a laptop with touchpad. I found that a freeware "Touch Freeze" can fix this problem.
Most of them were using laptops of Dell, HP or Sony. It has been suggested by lots of people in Microsoft communities as well.
So its definitely a problem present in some laptops and not in your hands. Touch Freeze is a free software which automatically disables the touchpad of your laptop as soon as you start typing.
Since the touchpad is disabled, the cursor will not jump automatically while typing.
You just need to install the software and it'll sit in system tray.
Its very simple to use and doesn't need any configuration.
If you want to close it, you can right-click on its icon in system tray and select exit option.
