I have at least 2 machines at home running Win 10 (my primary desktop machine + a laptop). I've never hit nor heard of this before. My parents have 3 machines on Win 10 w/o this issue. On at least 2 or 3 other machines w/Win 7, I think I installed Win 10 far enough to get a digital entitlement (long ago) so that I could upgrade or clean install Win 10 on them later. This was during the free upgrade period.
Some of the suggested fixes at https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions ... indows-10/
seem promising. I did a quick Google search to find this.
I would try another mouse first (I have a bunch) and disabling stuff like the touchscreen or touchpad, if you have these. Reinstall drivers or remove drivers for the mouse? (I can kinda navigate Windows w/keyboard if the mouse is disabled.) Uncheck "Enable pointer shadow"?https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/win ... 18c?auth=1
has a whole boatload of suggestions. One of them might be it.
If it started recently, you could try using System Restore to restore to a previous restore point. Go to This PC > (right click) Properties > System Protection.
