My cursor keeps jumping around while I am typing a paper.

Resolved Question:

My cursor keeps jumping around while I am typing a paper. For example, if I had recently typed a word with the letter "t" a few sentences later if I am typing a word with a "t" the cursor jumps up to that line. It is driving me insane! How to stop it?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

This is most likely caused by your palms/hands/static/warmth causing it to jump around, but thankfully there is a program called Touchfreeze that will freeze the touchpad while you are typing.

Please download and install it

Once you install it, try typing again. The program will run in the background so it will not affect anything on your computer.
