When I am typing an email or a document in Word on my laptop my mouse jumps to another line and I find myself typing in the middle of another sentence. Why does this happen and can it be corrected?

When using a notebook with a touchpad and a mouse attached, your thumb may get too close to the sensitive touchpad. This will cause the insertion point to jump to another line.

To prevent this you can disable the touchpad in Control Panel > Mouse > Touchpad tab, and just use the mouse. If you prefer to use the touchpad, look for a setting on the Touchpad tab to make it less sensitive.
