touchpad too sensitive and cursor jumps

Hi

I have a Yoga 720 that is new and I have adjusted the touchpad settings but the touchpad remains extremely sensitive and the cursor jumps around when I am typing and often deletes text or makes typing very difficult.  In the past I have downloaded the Touch Freeze program which helped but it is not helping on this computer with Windows 10.  Any solutions?  

Thanks!

Re: touchpad too sensitive and cursor jumps

Hi there, Vlk               -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

Some of the most common problems with touchpads are:

  • The touchpad starts and stops working or has never worked.
  • The touchpad is too sensitive, or it moves the cursor too fast.
  • The cursor sometimes jumps to another spot in a document or on the desktop.

Some of the most common causes of these problems are:

 

The touchpad has been enabled or disabled. The touchpad might have been mistakenly enabled or disabled. The touchpad can be enabled or disabled in several ways, including using keyboard shortcuts (key combinations on the keyboard), using Device Manager, or by using the touchpad settings in Control Panel.

 

The touchpad settings might be set incorrectly. Most touchpads have adjustable settings and these settings can make the touchpad function improperly if set incorrectly.

 

The sensitivity of the touchpad is set too high. If the sensitivity is set to high on the touchpad, any slight touch can cause the cursor to randomly jump to another location of the screen. To resolve this issue, lower the sensitivity setting of the touchpad using the touchpad settings.

 

Please try doing this below step:

Go to Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, click Mouse then select Elan option. You can enable the features you need HTH

 

Update us how it goes.
