The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion … but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.

Perhaps restarting your computer will solve it.

Do you also have this problem outside the game? If not, then it's purely a game problem.

Yes. I cannot do any similar cursor action in any app. It makes everything from writing essays and RP posts to editing pictures harder.

I can't even copy/paste fluidly cause I am unable to highlight text without double clicking on a word and using shift and the arrow keys to highlight the rest

Trackpads are a myth that in reality just track how crappy you are at life, not too different from Job Security.

No the little weird square thing below the keyboard on laptops, I swear it's called the trackpad.

Yes. That is what I'm using. I'm on a Surface Pro 7. The mouse, which was in my bookcase, works fine but I'd prefer my trackpad to... also work fine? Cause... this is an expensive tablet computer thingy

I mean, I get that you want it all to work because you paid good money for the thing, but can't you just use the touchscreen on it for now instead of having to highlight using Shift?

Lenovo wrote:A TrackPad (or touchpad) is a touch-sensitive interface surface that allows you to manipulate and interact with your laptop computer through finger gestures. As laptops typically do not include mice, the TrackPad provides an alternative way to move the cursor around the screen, select and open applications or programs, highlight text, interact with web browsers, and more.
