I used to do that with a different computer. This one doesn't have a key pad - I keep forgetting -hitting "page up" and "page down" sit and stare at the screen while I wonder what the heck happened.

I also generally dis-able my touch-pad. On the occasions when I have to use it, of course I forget to dis-able again. Generally discover after I've typed a paragraph or two then look at screen to see it all gone a second later.

I have used some of those "hacks". They don't always work as well as in the video.

They're very nice, clever tricks but the problem is when an occasion arises to use any of these tricks you don't remember them....
