I have bought a laptop a few months ago and have been using a corded mouse,now i find it easier to use the pad on the laptop.except for one VERY annoying thing. Every now and then as I am taking the pointer across the page,a little bar with arrows going in different directions pops up and off shoots the page either up or down and sometimes across.Its driving me crazy.Can I turn this option off,and how,(please). Rick.
The far rightside of my laptops touchpad acts like a scroll wheel. I suspect yours is similar. You should be able to customize it to suit your preferences by going into Mouse/Touchpad properties within Control Panel.
