Why does my touchpad go crazy on Windows but not Linux?

Why does my touchpad go crazy on Windows but not Linux?

I've had this problem on my laptop for sometime now. Anytime I try to use my touchpad it works correctly about 60% of the time in Windows, the other 40% of the time, it will jump to a random spot on the screen.

"It sounds like an issue with the sensitivity settings of the touchpad. By that I mean how much pressure you need to exert for it to register a touch. I'm guessing that under Windows it's very sensitive & less so under Ubuntu.

Are there any settings for this in Windows? (I don't have a laptop to check myself)."
