You can also use your keyboard as a mouse. This can be very helpful when your mouse isn’t working properly, or if you want to have some fun.
1. To activate mouse keys all you do is press Alt+Left shift key (the one below the caps lock key) and the Num Lock key.
To deactivate just press the above combination again.
All you do is use your numeric keypad to move the mouse pointer.
Here are some tips that might improve the Mouse Keys experience:
- You might want to set your options to something like the following (to change the options just double click on the mouse icon in the systray and click on settings)
1) Select ‘Hold down Ctrl to speed up Shift to slow down’ (this might be helpful if you want to go to a point quickly with your cursor)
2) Change the option to ‘off‘ where it says ‘Use Mouse Keys when NumLock is:‘ (this way you can use your numeric keypad to key in numbers)
And here are the functions that you can do with the Numeric Keypad:
5 = a left click on your normal mouse
Press 0 and navigate the pointer= Selecting the text in a normal keyboard
Pressing * or - and then pressing 5 = right click on your normal mouse (to use 5 to perform the left click action press the / key).
To scroll up and down you can either use arrow keys or the Page Up and Page Down keys. You can also use the spacebar to get to the bottom of the page.
