It’s been the bane of laptop users for years: you’re typing away, your palm brushes the trackpad, and the accidental click inserts the cursor in the middle of the text completely screwing things up. Banish the frustration of accidental trackpad clicks with the handy built-in Windows 10 settings.
Trackpads might be a very clever way to pack a mouse into a laptop palm rest but for years and years they’ve been a huge pain to use on account of their proximity to your palms and how sensitive they are. It’s natural for your hands to either rest on or brush the palmrest of your laptop while you’re typing but errant brushes will often register as a tap. As a result the next keystrokes you make won’t be where the end of the line you were finishing is but wherever in the body of text the cursor moved as a result of the keystroke.
