Dear Friends,

I'm trying to familiarize myself with the use of the various keys when using the keyboard in place of a defective mouse or TouchPad.

Does anyone know how to use a slide-adjustment with the keyboard?

When using a mouse one a) puts the arrow-cursor over the slide-arrow, b) holds the left mouse-button down and c) moves the slide-arrow to the left or right.

Can that be done using the keyboard?

I'm not sure about the slide-adjustment - but this article has some relevant information on keyboard shortcuts.

Usually you can work sliders (like in the Display Settings box) by pressing Tab until the slider is highlighted (a dotted line box surrounds it) and then pressing the appropriate Arrow keys.
