Controlling the Cursor with Your Keyboard
Have you ever wished that you could control your screen's cursor with the keyboard? Depending on what kind of work you're doing, having the pinpoint control that comes from moving the cursor with the keyboard could be an advantage. As long as you have Microsoft's Accessibility Options installed, you can make it so. Go to Start, Control Panel and open Accessibility Options. Click the Mouse tab and check the Use MouseKeys box. To control the cursor, you'll use the arrows on your number keypad. Go to Settings and decide whether you want MouseKeys to be activated when Num Lock is on or off. You'll also want to play with the speed settings to get the desired cursor movement. When you finish, click OK twice.
