    Problems selecting areas and menus using the mousepad


    Hello,

    Since installing Windows 10, I am having a lot of trouble clicking on areas and loading menu options using my mousepad. For example;

    - When I go into the start menu, if I go to click on the Power option, it will not load the menu where I can choose to restart, shut down, etc. The menu will flash up for not even half a second and disappear.

    - Another example: when signing up for an account on this website, I was prompted to select a photo from a group of photos for validity but when I clicked on a photo it would not acknowledge this. I was also unable to use the mousepad to click on the tick option to confirm I agree to the terms and conditions etc.

    I've no idea what I can do so I'd be really grateful for any help. The mousepad worked fine before I updated to Windows 10.

    Thanks,

    Ally

    :)

    Optical mouse? Clean the sensor, clean the mousing area, try a new (clean) mousepad.

    Better: Upgrade to a laser mouse.

  3. windows randomly zoom in and out

    I just purchased HP Pavilion laptop with Windows 10. I am having problems with the windows randomly zooming in and out when using the mousepad. I have looked for the setting to correct this based on previous answers, but nothing has solved the problem.
    The scrolling function is turned off in the mouse area of the control panel. I had this same problem with my previous laptop running Windows 8. This is VERY frustrating. Help!
