Ok, I realize that this may seem like a funny thing to need help with, but I've always just used a mouse in the past. Well, my mouse bit the big one, and right now I'm stuck with the touchpad. Problem is, I'm not sure exactly how to use the thing. I can get around the basics ok, but sometimes it just goes off and does what it wants to do!
I try to slide the cursor across the page and it locks up and just shows me - <I> (only it's solid black symbols).
The same thing happens sometimes when I try to move the cursor up or down - I get the above symbol turned 90 degrees.
Other times, it just scrolls side to side (or up and down through a list of text, or a web page) all by itself - usually when I don't want it to do so.
If the cursor floats over a shortcut or link, it opens it all by itself - as if I had selected that item and clicked on it - only I hadn't.
It also highlights and selects items or text as I move the cursor sometimes (I wasn't TRYING to highlight anything though)
I've been trying to find a control panel or options menu for it, but there doesn't seem to be one.
Basically, it acts like a runaway mouse, or something.
Can anyone help me fix this?
