  • Are you using a laptop? Sometimes the slightest brush against touch pad will move the cursor. I have an option on my laptop to turn the touch pad off.

  • YW! I did that very thing many times until my adult son showed me how to turn it off. LOL. I have a wireless mouse so I never use the touch pad anyway.

  • I agree about the touch pad. Mine did that all the time and drove me nuts until I learned how to turn it off. It's fine now. :)

  • I agree, it's probably the touch pad on your laptop.
