Re: How to stop my computer moving or deleting my text

I operate my laptop with a separate wireless mouse and keyboard. So my fingers go nowhere near the Laptop trackpad and keyboard. I don't have room on my cluttered desk for a separate keyboard but if I concentrate on clearing the clutter I might at least be able to move the laptop over to the left a...

Re: How to stop my computer moving or deleting my text

mc2fool - no dimple on my touchpad. Ok, then turn off the touchpad though Windows. Click Start and type touchpad and select Touchpad settings then click on Additional settings and then Disable . If that fixes the problem then fine and if it doesn't at least you'll have eliminated accidentally touch...

Many thanks. I think I'll wait till my son visits tomorrow since I don't even know where my Windows search box is :roll:

Re: How to stop my computer moving or deleting my text

My HP EliteBook (ancient) still does this, as per linked thread Never managed to turn off the trackpad I seem to remember you mentioning on another thread that you had crumbs on your keyboard. How many times have you cleaned your laptop and did you have the problem from the outset? Perhaps we are b...

Re: Tobacco shares

What is the difference between the iQUOS that PM makes and the e-cigs. the other manufacturers are making? Are the former less likely to be banned in places like San Francisco and is it known whether they are less harmful?

Re: How to stop my computer moving or deleting my text

Many thanks to all. James: I had a look at settings on my HP laptop but couldn't see anything which seemed to fit. Can you give me any further clues. It's almost impossible not to touch the touchpad when typing or resting. I see that my left thumb is perilously close which may be something to do wit...

How to stop my computer moving or deleting my text

I'm sure we have had a discussion about this before but I can't find it and I am being driven mad by my laptop suddenly highlighting and instantly deleting whole chunks of text I have just typed or inserting what I am typing into the middle of a previous sentence. It didn't use to happen when I firs...

Re: MKS Future Prospects

Not having bought any clothes I couldn't pick up locally (which doesn't amount to much) for some years and feeling in need of a change, I thought I would have a look at the M&S website before visiting the nearest store which is some way distant. I'm glad, because I would have been wasting my tim...

Re: Synthomer (SYNT)

A bit obscure for some, perhaps, but Synthomer has issued nil-paid rights. I believe this is to help fund the acquisition of another chemicals company in the United States. SYNT has yielded as much as 6% in the past, yields a little under 4% now, and is in the FTSE-250. I recall TJH used to hold th...

Re: GlaxoSmithKline PLC (GSK)

Mine are with IWeb and I had exactly the same message yesterday, which was the first I had heard of it. Will we end up with fewer GSK shares? Come to think of it, I also have a certificated holding and have heard nothing about this from the registrars.

Re: KCOM Group (KCOM)

Thanks for the info. Spiderbill. It will make precious little difference to my payout, I'm afraid, but the loss might come in useful if I sell my Greggs which have rocketed since I bought (or had last time I looked).

Re: Tobacco shares

Hilarious that San Francisco is banning vaping whereas the NHS is going to sell the devices in hospitals in order to help people to give up smoking.

Re: THIS is how you get rich!

I have held VCP since before Wilding appeared on the scene and my original shares cost me nothing in view of the div. paid to enable him to collect a large stake; none paid since. I offloaded my original holding to 6 family members after the big drop as a takeover seems likely at some point, negatin...

Re: Sold out of NGrid

It's not just Corbyn HYPers have to fear, Ian. The regulator is planning to clamp down on dividends in favour of reducing water bills and I expect that will apply to other utilities as well. Having said that, I still hold several utilities inc. NG and UU as I don't know what else to do with the mone...

So why is the s.p. not doing better, as one might expect it to? They do call buybacks returning money to investors, after all.

Lloyds Bank Share Buy-Backs

Yet another RNS re Lloyds buying back shares. All the buying back and cancellation of shares doesn't seem to have done much for the share price, as it didn't with RPC who have just sold the company for less than the sp was about a year ago, but presumably the price would have gone down corresponding...

Re: KCOM Group (KCOM)

Presumably the market is expecting the auction to achieve a higher price than the 108p per share previously offered as the s.p. is now 114.6p (to buy). What I'd like to know is what happens, in the event of a takeover, to the options (with a nil exercise price) granted to "the KCOM Directors an...

Yes, I read about that in The Times this morning. Very strange. I thought MEIF/Macquarie HAD made a final offer which the BOD recommended, withdrawing their recommendation of the previous slightly lower offer from Humber Bidco and we had been asked to vote re the Scheme of Arrangement. You wouldn't ...
