Issue: How to fix mouse if it’s clicking by itself on Windows 10?
I’ve recently noticed that my mouse clicks itself on random occasions. At first, I thought that the mouse itself is dying, so first of all I’ve changed the batteries, but that did not help. Then I changed my mouse, but the same irritating clicks continue. In fact, I can’t use my PC normally because the clicks happen accidentally and, which is why stuff I don’t really want opening is launched. This is quite annoying. Could you please tell me what this issue could be related to? Thanks! By the way, I’m running Windows 10 1607 version.
