Root Cause

A problem with the chrome browser in touchscreen laptops, if we use both touch and mouse. And the only suggestion chrome provided is to disable touch support (chrome://flags/#touch-events.)


Perform the below local change :
  1.  Open Google Chrome  
  2.  Type chrome://flags/ in the address bar and press Enter.  
  3.  Click on Enable touch events > Disabled.
  4.  Click on Relaunch Now
