    When I am typing in Win8 applications my cursor jumps without warning to another place on the page and I end up having to erase more than I type. This is very disconcerting and wastes a lot of effort. Is there a mouse setting or a system setting that will stop this random jumping or at least minimize it from frequently happening?

    Is this a laptop? You may may be brushing against the touchpad without realizing it. Common problem.
