  1. Cursor can move, but not click


    My pc froze up and I couldn't interact with anything, so I hit the power button. It loaded a while and then started "Scanning and repairing drive C:" with no percentage next to it. It didn't even take a minute and then it seemed to boot normally.

    I could click things normally on the lock screen, logged in. But as soon as I logged in, I couldn't left or right click anymore. My keyboard still works normally and my mouse lights things up when I hover over them, but I can't interact with my mouse. My scroll wheel still works, but clicking doesn't.

    I tried rebooting, starting in safe mode, updating drivers and unplugging my mouse. Nothing worked.

    Any ideas?

    cursor dissappeared

    Thank you both for your prompt replies, I tried all steps listed, some I had tries previously but I still tried them again, but still no cursor.

    Do you have any other suggestions?

    Hi Peter,

    Unstable mouse cursors can be caused by outdated drivers, dirt inside the mouse, and more. To make your cursor work properly again, we recommend that you refer to this

    Cursor can move, but not click

    Is there a key to delete character ahead of the cursor?

    Hello Stephen,

    As of the moment, deleting the characters next to the cursor is unavailable. You can only delete characters by moving the cursor to the right side. You can always send a suggestion via Feedback Hub app so that it can be added or included on the next update.

    To send a feedback on your phone, you can follow the steps below:

    1. Go to All Apps, search for the Feedback
      Hub app.
    2. Open the menu icon at the top left side.
    3. Select Feedback, then at the top right side, tap the
      add
      button (+).
    4. Select Suggestion and fill up the box with the details of the feature you want to be added on Windows phone.
    5. Select the right category for the suggestion and then submit.

    Should you need more help, feel free to ask the Community.
