Why does the cursor jump to another line when I'm typing?

Whilst trying to type the title to this query the cursor jumps back and causes me to backtrack all the time.

Why??

I am assuming you are on a laptop with a touchpad? In which case the pointer speed and tapper settings need to be adjusted - just as you would change the settings of a mouse.

I don't know what model you have but as a general rule go into control panel where you should find reference to touch pad - then pointer options. You will probably be given options so you can click on advanced/advanced features setting - click on settings in pointer speed and tapping setting box - you probably then need to uncheck the "enable tap" box.

Alternatively, you could attach a usb or wireless mouse to your laptop which should give you better control.
