    From IE to The Start Screen


    Sometimes, without me doing anything, when I'm viewing a web page in IE 11, I get sent back to the Start Screen
    My hands were off the keyboard but it still happens.

    Anyone else having this issue??

    Do you have a touch screen? Maybe you're getting "ghost clicks"

    I have no touch screen but I do have keyboard with a pad.
    I've downloaded and installed the drivers and software for the keyboard.
    Hope it helps.

    Hi JamesJ,
    No problem, have you checked your touchpad drivers?, is it Synaptics touchpad? if it is, what is the current driver? please fill the system specs, it helps members to help you.

    I went to the web site and installed the driver.
    The issue hasn't occurred since.
