I just got a new Dell laptop with Windows8. When writing a new email in Smartmail, I can't relocate the cursor using the touch pad. I can move the pointer to where I want to type, but the cursor doesn't go there when I tap the touchpad or even when I left click. It does however move when I right click, but that brings up a menu and I have to left click to get out of that menu and type again.
So in short, a left click does nothing when trying to move the cursor, nor does tapping on the touchpad when composing in the body of a Smartmail email.
I didn't have this problem with my other computers running XP and Windows 7.
