I don't know why that would be, except the Windows drivers for them might not have the best settings for Scrivener? I think Scrivener doesn't mess with devices itself, deferring to Windows for those functions. (mouse, keyboard, etc)

Is there any log/info I can share to help you fix this? It's REALLY annoying, since traveling and writing (on my Surface) is a pretty common scenario in my case.

I have a desktop with a Core i7-6700, 3.4ghz, 16GB of RAM and am not seeing what you describe at all (CPU utilisation doesn't go above 10% even with a series of documents in Scrivenings mode open in the composition mode).
Maybe the touchscreen drivers? I don't have a Surface any more, but I notice Microsoft keep doing updated drivers and firmware for them. So perhaps that's worth checking (if you haven't already, obviously).

Annotation 2020-06-07 111845.png Just a small 256GB SSD to hold things. I occasionally have choppy scrolling when using my fingers to do so, but prefer to use an external mouse or the stylus - the stylus seems to track better than the finger method. I also noticed that changing the screen resolution and scaling percentage affects the precision of the touch screen. YMMV.

I'm really puzzled about the awful performances in this case. Everything is fine (CPU at 8% in Idle) and then it rockets to sky high (around 20/40%) the whole time I'm in Composition mode. It's not something related to scrolling only. Typing also gets sluggish performances.
At this point, it could be something related to drivers... Funny thing is, games and other apps runs fine. What on earth could Scrivener request to my hardware to cause such trouble on my config?
