  2. Wandering mouse

    Hi,

    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to adjust the mouse speed and check if that helps to resolve the issue.

    • Type mouse on the search bar and select Mouse and touchpad settings.
    • Select Additional Mouse Settings.
    • Select Pointer Options and adjust the mouse speed under Motion.
    If the issue still persists, I suggest you to run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter.

    1. Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    2. Select Troubleshooting.

    3. Select View all on the top left corner.

    4. Click on Hardware and Devices.

    5. Follow the on-screen instructions to run the troubleshooter.

    6. Check if issue persists.

    Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.

    A continuing problem is desktop icons don't stay where I put them on my Windows 10 computer

    The Windows desktop was not designed to permanently maintain the position of icons. Not in 10, 8.1, 8, 7, etc. You'll need third-party software to do that. Here's one well-known program:

    Cue the icons:

    They call me the wanderer

    Yeah, the wanderer

    I roam around, around, around
