When I want to use the trackpad, I have to turn it on, otherwise casual brushing sends the cursor flying all over the place.
I'm currently using both, but mostly the trackpad left handed. I'm using whatever is causing no pain.

I broke my spacebar a few months ago, it's still somewhat usable. I keep forgetting to order a new one, it will cost all of $5-6, my wallet isn't always near my laptop, I'm just used to ordering from places with my card on file that it can take forever for me to get it together and order from someplace new, LOL.

I keep all that info in a password protected file on my computer so I don't have to go running for my wallet every time I want to order something online.

Baby Bro's wifey, The Princess. (Not you, PF). Gah. The only person on Earth who has ever had a child. We.. Must.. Cater..and..obey..

And she is a petty vent. Although I have a few other words that might work too.

If I tried brushing left-handed I'd end up with cavities tout de suite!

Or you could memorize the number. Himself used to panic when I rattled it off at a snap, even reciting the expiration date and my security code. Had to remind him repeatedly that I log into the account using the number as the I.D. and I pay a number of bills by phone using number/expire/security code. He's finally to the point where he now knows I'm not spending us into the poorhouse!

My laptop has a button beside the power button to turn the touchpad on or off.

I had to go to the diagram of the computer that shows where everything is to find it.

It's not in Control Panel.

No more runaway cursor. Whew!
