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?

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:
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

I am having the same problem with my yoga 720. This is really frustrating the sh!t out of me. I cannot tell you how much work I have lost because the curser highlights text and then deletes. This makes typing any document a complete drag. I have an older yoga 2 that I completely adored which is why I bought this one. I am totally regretting my decision. I am so over this issue. Nothing I have tried fixes the issue. Pretty sad when I have to break out my kiddos much much cheaper HP to do my work. i was really hoping to find a solution in this forum.
