Hello Shirley, try this out for your issue....

To stop the Mouse from jumping while you type try this:
Control panel --> Mouse
Pointer options
Check the hide pointer when typing box.

Hope this works for you..

Did you read the post?

by seanferd In reply to Solution ????

The answer to the other person's problem was in the post prior to the one to which you responded.

If that isn't your solution, try cleaning the mouse and keyboard, or try a different mouse and keyboard to see if the problem persists.

Jumping mouse

by kenmcgeester In reply to Did you read the post?

Yes I read it but misread the one I replied to. I found the "hide" solution some time ago and it does not work for me. For awhile the problem decreased in frequency and I quit looking. Then it has increased in frequency. Since I depend upon the system to answer homework online it is a great aggregation factor. I have cleaned mouses and swapped mouses and even went to a MS wireless mouse. Updated mouse drivers and this really cut the frequency for a brief period, about 4-6 weeks. Installed all sorts of fixes that little in association with a wild mouse, but you try.
Thanks

Does this happen

by boxfiddler Moderator In reply to Jumping mouse

only while working online? Or all the time?

on or offline or both?

by kenmcgeester In reply to Does this happen

To the best of my knowledge, it happens online more than off. But then I am online about 10:1 since I specialize in online education using applications like Educator, Moodle and Blackboard.

Blackboard.

by boxfiddler Moderator In reply to Does this happen

My campus uses this.
I have the same problem when working in Blackboard. I've taken to typing things up in Wordpad, then copying and pasting to its appropriate spot in Blackboard.

Doesn't seem to matter what browser I use, either. FF, IE, and Opera. Has to be Blackboard.
