  1. Windows 10 - Mouse/Touchpad move cursor, but can't click


    My computer will randomly "freeze", meaning that I can move my mouse around, but clicking on things like my browser or the start bar doesn't do anything. I looked around online and the only "solution" I found was to press ctrl+alt+delete, then press cancel.
    I have tried updating my drivers, but Windows tells me that they are all up-to-date. I also tried doing a system restore, but unfortunately, I don't have any restore points set up. Its not my mouse that's broken because I've tried several, including the touchpad on the laptop itself, and they still don't work. So far, I haven't been able to find a pattern for what the cause is, but it occurs about two times a minute.
    Any ideas on what the problem might be and how I should fix it?

    Edit: After messing around a bit, I discovered that it is only the left-click button that isn't working. The computer is still registering my mouse because I can see hover effects, and right-clicking still works.

    :)

    Laptop mouse touchpad not working after installation of Windows 10

    After I installed Windows 10 on my Asus laptop, my mouse touchpad stopped working and the cursor didn't move again. Yet an external mouse plugged in functions ok. Does anybody know how I can connect my mouse touchpad with the cursor again?

  3. Lumia 950 XL Continuum problem with tactil mouse

    I've never used a BT mouse but the touchpad cursor (on my 950XL) when using Continuum is jerky/erratic. Basically, I cannot accurately click on anything. When I try to do so, the cursor moves to a different spot. The issue appears to be that the touchpad
    is wayyyy too sensitive when it comes to the click location. You have to move the cursor, then attempt clicking in the *exact same spot* where the cursor stopped.
