    What in the hec causes this below? It does this periodically and I thought with the windows 10 upgrade it would go away. No idea why this happens but it makes the laptop unusable as everything keeps scrolling up by itself as you will see. The first video it just shuffles thru menus without me doing anything, til it seems I get an update and its fine again but not sure what causes it to act up like this and its damn annoying.
    BTW the laptop is a Lenovo Yoga 11S, first gen.

    Looks like a stuck up arrow key or an issue with the mouse/trackpad. Can you turn off drag to scroll on your trackpad?

    Definitely a keyboard or trackpad error. Disable trackpad with function key, if it still happens it's a keyboard issue. If it stops it's a trackpad error. Either way if it's hardware related you may need to seek a service if it's a new computer.

    Which function key do i use to disable the trackpad? I use a mouse 90% of the time.

    There should be a trackpad icon on one of them normally. It varies from manufacturer to manufacturer

    That seems to have been the culprit, thanks. Still don't know why it is fine for months then decides to act up for a little while. But, for now it was real bad and that fixed it.

    Edit....spoke too soon. Can't type nothing in the reply window. As soon as a type a letter the curser goes back to the front behind the letter I just typed. Annoying.

    :( do you still have warranty? I'd take it to be serviced. You could do a windows refresh first and see if that fixes it - it won't remove your personal data.

    No warranty. Ive had it over two years.
    How do you do a refresh on windows? I'll try that.
