  2. Pointers

    Points are simply a value (address) that "points" to a value. It has no extra information about what it is pointing to (hence the danger). When using arrays/indexers, the operating system knows this is a collection that is this long and is of this type. Any operation that steps outside of those constraints is caught and handled. On the other hand, if a pointer so much as points to the wrong address, all the values will subsequently be wrong.

    Pointers are faster but more risky.

    Hi Jasbir,

    • Type Mouse & TouchPad Settings and hit enter.
    • Select the last tab that contains the built-in mouse pad.
    • Click Enable device.
    • Restart your computer.

    If issue persists, press and hold Left Alt + Left Shift + Number Lock. You will be prompted to a small box. Use the tab key to select the
    Yes option.
