The speed at which the cursor moves across the screen can sometimes make it difficult to control. In Windows 10 you can slow the touchpad down to make it easier to control the cursor.
To slow down the touchpad:
- Open the Settings app by pressing the Windows logo key + I on the keyboard.
- In the Settings app, select ‘Devices’.
- On the Devices screen, select ‘Touchpad’ in the left-hand column.
- On the right side of the screen, adjust the slider, labelled “Change the cursor speed” to a speed that is more comfortable to use.
Note: If this does not work it could be because your computer settings are managed by someone else (an IT department or administrator for example). If this is the case you will need to contact them to access these settings or for further help.
