  1. Stop HOVER please.


    I hate this option and I can't stop it. All the threads out there are outdated or for other versions of Windows, or are just wrong. I just want this option gone. I can't even imagine that anyone out there finds this feature useful. If I leave the cursor anywhere for more than a second, it selects links, opens windows, relocates my cursor, and generally makes the laptop horrible to use. PLEASE help me!


    Also... There seems to be some brand new "Pinch to Zoom" issue that hasn't been present for the previous seven months that I've owned this laptop. I try to scroll (The two-finger style on the touchpad) and the screen zooms like 10X. I HAVE used the pinch to zoom previously, but the screen has never zoomed like this thing does now. Not helpful at all, and I can't find any way to fix it.


    HP Laptop, WIndows 10. Thanks to anyone who can solve this, and that includes you, Microsoft.

    :)
