Navigate Your Computer Without A Mouse In Windows XP.

This is a seldom used Windows XP feature that is sure to come in handy (probably when you least suspect it). I’m referring to Mousekeys, which when activated allows you to navigate the mouse cursor using the arrow keys on your keyboard.

There are a few ways we can open Mousekeys , I will show you 3 different ways.

Click backupreg_01.jpg, then backupreg_02.jpg.

Type control access.cpl,,4

then click backupreg_03.jpg

Here is a 2nd way to open Mousekeys.

On your Keyboard Press the following Keys at the same time:

Left SHIFT + ALT + NUM LOCK

Finally here is the 3rd way to open Mousekeys.

Click backupreg_01.jpg, then Go to CONTROL PANEL , then Go to ACCESSIBILITY OPTIONS, then click on the MOUSE Tab 

The Mousekeys will open. Depending on how you opened Mousekeys, you either have to check mark the box USE MOUSEKEYS , then click ok. (if you opened Mousekeys using the Left SHIFT+ALT+ NUMLOCK, then all you have to do is hit OK and Mousekeys will start) Once the Mousekeys is running simply use the arrow keys located on your numeric keypad (8 is up, 2 is down, 4 is left, and 6 is right).

To move the cursor simply tap on the arrows in the numeric keypad (if you hold down one of the arrows, it will move the cursor faster).

You will probably notice that the cursor moves incredibly slow, so one other thing I do is, when I open Mousekeys, I go into the Settings and adjust the speed all the way up.

Here is what you need to know to navigate with Mousekeys:

  • To move up, tap or hold down the 8 key on your numeric keypad

  • To move down, tap or hold down the 2 key on your numeric keypad

  • To move right, tap or hold down the 6 key on your numeric keypad

  • To move left, tap or hold down the 4 key on your numeric keypad

  • To Click on something, Hit the 5 key on your numeric keypad

  • To double-click, press the plus sign (+) on your numeric keypad

  • To right-click, press the minus sign (-) on your numeric keypad

  • To drag something, move the cursor to the item you want to drag then press the Insert key. Then to release the item hit the Delete key.
