The trackpad on my laptop is so sensitive that when I’m typing and my hand brushes lightly against it, the cursor jumps to another location and I start typing in the middle of another sentence. It’s really irritating and has already happened 3 times typing this brief paragraph. Does anyone know how to adjust the trackpad on a Windows 8 laptop? I’d rather have to click the button below the trackpad every time than have this “lightly touch anywhere to click” current setting.
