When typing an email the cursor will jump mid-sentence and I will suddenly be typing somewhere else within the body of either my response or of the original email that I am responding to. I believe it is jumping to the spot that I have moved the arrow to while I type. Thank you in advance for any help.

Don't move the arrow while you type.
Cheers,

I was led to believe people actually help on this site, clearly I was misled.

Maybe if you possibly give us additional information or rephrase your query. We can get a better, or possibly another idea of what you mean. In it's current state, the reply given made the most sense, and seemed the most logical, to the question stated originally.

Hello bj5485,

People like jgweed, Animal and other staff, as well as some very knowledgeable members, donate hours here sharing their expertise and wisdom with the rest of us -- with no apparent gain to them except for the satisfaction of helping someone. The least that common folk like us can do is read the information for new members and the How to Create a Topic post in particular. As is usual with any help forum like this, we are asked simply to make it slightly easier for for our helpers by providing as much detail about a situation as we possibly can. In its absence, they either have to guess at what the problem might be or request it from us.

I've wandered the internet for about a dozen years now, and never have I run across such a combination of friendliness and expertise as I have in the month that I've been a member here. Sorry for running off at the mouth, but I've seen far too many people post here and elsewhere without following a forum's guidelines and then complain about the (non)results they get.

So, having said all that, perhaps this utility that I just ran across at HowToGeek.com will solve your problem. I have no experience with it, so I can't personally recommend it.

Good luck.
Dialer
