SOLVED – Mouse cursor freezes after typing in Windows 10

by ezdealsmaster in Featured, Tech Tips category

Recently, one of my friend has been facing problem where her mouse cursor was keep freezing for a few seconds after pressing any key on the keyboard in Windows 10. This started happening since she upgraded her laptop with free Windows 10 upgrade provided by Microsoft! She started thinking about downgrading back to Windows 7.  The delay was driving her crazy ofcourse, and I experienced the same after using her laptop for a short time.

When I looked into some settings, the problem appears to be mostly limited to Synaptics drivers, and only on systems where such drivers are installed and active within Windows 10.

Fortunately, the solution — while elusive — was simple:

  1. Search Mouse in the searchbox at the bottom of the screen; Choose Mouse & touchpad settings from the results
  2. Choose Additional mouse options
  3. Click the ClickPad tab, then click Settings…MouseSettings 
  4. Click the Advanced tab
  5. Set the Filter Activation Time slider all the way to 0.


That should fix it, if it helps you fix your problem, please don’t forget to leave the comments. 🙂
