Why does the surface pro 4 navigate thru programs on its own?

We recently started launching surface pro 4's at work. One of them, while docked, closed and hooked up to 2 monitors, started navigating thru outlook on its own.

Navigated thru various folders, opened emails, changed the font size to 200+ on the screen, all while not being touched.

Has anyone else run into this?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I'm having a similar problem. Lately I've had folders just randomly open up on their own. I can't figure out why!!!


I have the same problem with the Surface Pro 4 while using the dock. The on-screen keyboard also randomly disappears when in tablet mode, in the middle of typing.

Try this:

  • replace/reconnect the external keyboard
  • replace/reconnect the external mouse
  • exchange docking and see the result

Another simple thing to check: Is there a bluetooth mouse paired with the SP4? If there is, could it be turned on and rolling around in a bag somewhere?

I've had similar symptoms because of just that.
