Cursor moves to another location when typing


When I am typing and hit the shift key my cursor moves to another location when typing? How can I stop this?

Also, on my desktop, I cannot move the program icons around, they just go back to the end of the line. Help

Thanks, Greg

This can be real frustrating especially when your trying to type a document

Touch Pads are operated on static energy and as your finger moves to hit the shift key, the touch pad picks up on your static energy You can adjust the sensitivity of your Touch Pad by going into the control panel and double click on mouse Go to motion and adjust your speed.

As far as the icons on your desktop, you can right click on the desktop and go to arrange icons You can arrange my name, size etc.

Hope this is helpful and good luck
