Mouse cursor jumping to the upper left hand part of the screen

Hello everyone. I've been experiencing something weird the past couple of days. My mouse cursor randomly jumps to the upper left hand part of the screen. Doesn't matter if I'm using the trackpad or my mouse. Not sure at all what causes it, but I haven't made any major changes to my machine.

I recorded a video which you can see here:

I'm running Zorin 16 Core. Any thoughts?

I too experienced this with my fresh install of Zorin, what I did was to change the cursors to Whiteglass in the Tweaks app.

Thanks for your suggestion. I changed the cursor like you suggested, but the problem still persists

Sorry, I miss-read your post. You are using the track pad and you have random jumpings. Not what I had experienced.

Gotcha. What I meant on my original post was that it doesn't matter if I use the trackpad or my bluetooth mouse, the problem still happens. Thanks

I have seen this a lot where the trackpad registers movement when the person is typing.
To test this, try disabling the trackpad entirely for a day and then use the USB mouse only and the computer as normal. Observe if the mouse-jump stops. If it does, it gives us an idea of the cause and possible solutions.

Got it. Ok, I'll give that a shot and will report back in a day. Thanks!

My first thought is Bluetooth is on, regardless of whether the mouse is connected or not. Try turning off Bluetooth and see if it happens with just the trackpad. If not, then there is an interfering signal (phone, microwave, remote, rc car, drone... etc) interfering. Upgrade your wifi/bluetooth adapter to resolve.
