  1. Remove "click by hovering".


    I've recently got a new PC with Windows 10 Home on it.

    There is this feature where if you leave the cursor hovering over something clickable for a few seconds it will automatically click it.

    I only use the touchpad not a mouse. I want to turn this feature off but I can't find anywhere in the control panel to turn it off. I found a section to turn this feature off if you are using a mouse but that has no effect.


    It is very frustrating to beging reading a page and suddenly a new page appears.


    Any help would be appreciated.
