My computer mouse keeps moving to the top of my computer screen sometimes when I do not want it to go up there. What can I do to fix this?

Is it the cursor that's moving or the mouse? If it's the cursor try changing the batteries in your mouse; if it's the mouse itself you must have a poltergeist problem.

Not sure. I actually have a laptop so the mouse that is in the laptop is doing this.

I have next to zero computer tech knowledge, but one time the cursor on my laptop just froze, so I turned the computer off, unplugged it, and removed the battery from the bottom of the computer ..

I waited about a minute, put the battery back in, and everything was fine after that

Whenever I have problems with my mouse, I just restart the computer and it usually works again.

This sometimes works for teenagers and young adults as well: unplug their batteries, give them a timeout and then they might start working correctly again.

Is it considered wrong to leave the batteries out for say, ummm, a few weeks at a time ??

I would suggest reinstalling the drivers. Most of the time my cursor moves on my laptop because there is something like a wire on the trackpad. Try both.
