Keyboard + Mouse in Vista

Keyboard + Mouse in Vista

One of the accessibility features in Windows Vista is called Mouse Keys and it allows you to control your mouse movement with the number pad on your keyboard. By doing so, you can move the mouse pointer a single pixel at a time if you want. I mean, it doesn’t get any more precise than that. Let’s check it out!

To work with Mouse Keys, go to Start, Control Panel and click on the Ease of Access link.



Next, click on “Change how your mouse works.”



Then click on “Set up Mouse Keys.”



Now, you can configure the Mouse Keys to your liking, with the most important setting being “Turn on Mouse Keys.” Once you’ve turned on the option, you can toggle Mouse Keys on and off with Alt + Shift + Num Lock.



Once it’s been activated, you can use the arrows on the number pad to move your mouse. How cool is that?!
