Default Keyboard issues

While typing stuff into the computer (like right now) sometimes my cursor will jump to another part of the message, and since I am typing dysfunctional and am looking down at the keyboard I will sometimes get two or three jumbles before I notice. Then I have to cut and paste or retype.

WTF??

Are you on a laptop?

Sometimes your palm can brush against the touchpad... just disable the touchpad.

I once had a small piece of cashew nut stuck under one ofthe keys that gave me a bunch of funky stuff going on.

Touchpad would be my guess as well.

Spilled hot coffee on my keyboard last week, turned it upside down then blew on it with a hair dryer………. Works perfect to my surprise.

I spend very little time in my office such as it is for my little self owned company. But occasionally when I am there and things have gotten boring I will surreptitiously switch a few of the keys on my office managers keyboard and then sit back and enjoy the show, lol
