Answers 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.

Shut down the programs which are running in the background - My curser jumps and I am constantly typing in the middle of another word.
Part of the reason why old PC take so long to start and various errors is because of all the programs you've installed. Reducing the number of applications which start-up when Windows boots enables you to get to the desktop faster and increases the memory available.
At the right side of the taskbar, click the arrow to display the notification icons. Each is a program that loads with Windows. Some are essential - antivirus software for example - but others may not be. Right click each one and if there is a Settings menu, select it and turn off the option to start automatically with Windows. Some programs, such as Google Drive, can be manually started when they are needed instead of running all the time.
Reinstall your System
When you have tried the above methods but can't seem to fix your error, you can reinstall your Operating System and install a "clean" copy of Windows onto your desktop again. But this should be the last method to fix your problem, as this will completely erase everything on your hard disk and it will take you a lot of time to reinstall all your software back to your desktop. It's very important for you to back up all files, pictures and personal information before you do that.
