Keys to Error: My curser jumps and I am constantly typing in the middle of another word.Hi Leona Rosanna,
On which application does the cursor jump?
Do you remember any changes to your computer prior to the issue occurring?
Are you using a desktop or a laptop?
I'd suggest you follow the below steps and check if the issue persists.
Boot your machine in
safe mode and check if the issue persists.
If the cursor does not jump in safe mode, I suspect the involvement of a third party software conflict causing the issue to occur.
I'd have you put your computer in a clean boot state.
Clean boot helps eliminate third party software conflicts.
Note: Follow step 7 to restart your computer as usual.
