How to turn off cursor function?
Does anyone know how to turn off the cursor function that allows the following:
When the cursor is paused on a link it will go to that link without clicking on it. This causes me to have to always leave the cursor off the screen when working on the laptop. It's a pain. If I am reading a drop down menu and forget to move the cursor - all of a sudden I am reading another page. I have looked everywhere under Control Panel cursor tabs, searched Help under all locations and tried Microsoft and Gateway and the Geeks on Call fellow at my local Best Buy. I would appeciate any help with this. Thanks.

On the General tab of Folder Options you can change the way you click to open things.
Set it to "Double click to open (single click to select)" and hit OK. That might help.

Thank You Throoper
I looked into your suggestion and it seems to be working. Thank you so much. I have been yelling at my laptop. What a relief. J
