Disable touchpad on laptop
The touchpad (touchpad) on laptops sometimes makes users feel uncomfortable because with just a little touch, the cursor is moved, causing the typed characters to change position. The text will last longer with corrections of misspelled words.
Some laptops have a switch (or use the function key) on / off for the touchpad, by pressing 2 keys simultaneously Fn and F7 (Note that different laptops will have different function keys, you can try each function key if you don’t know)
Once installed and started, the Touchpad Blocker interface appears quite simple. On top of that there are 4 options available which are marked as Automatically run program on startup (automatically activate Touchpad Blocker when Windows starts), Block accidental taps and clicks (lock Toudpad when detecting fast continuous typing speed) in some time, in milliseconds – milliseconds. The default is 300 milliseconds). After setting, press X button (Close) to close the program window.
Always keep the keyboard clean
The keyboard is a daily contact and is easy to get dirty due to the environment or eating habits of the user. The material sticks to the surface of the key or gets into the gap between the keys, causing a keyboard jerk or even damaging the device.
Computer keyboards also often suffer from dirt and fingerprints because this is one of the devices most office users touch in daily life.
This is also one of the main causes leading to a decrease in typing speed or even a device that mistakenly recognizes characters.
To clean the computer keyboard, the easiest and quickest way is to turn the device upside down and shake vigorously for dust to fall out. You can also use a broom (usually comes with a laptop kit) to clean the keyboard, then take a cotton swab or cotton ball, a soft cloth moistened with alcohol 90, and wipe it on the surface of the keyboard and between the gaps, Alcohol is a very effective cleaning agent.
For small dusty debris that does not sweep with a brush, you can use a small toothpick to remove those stubborn dust particles before wiping it with a towel or alcohol wipes.
