Use Keyboard to Move Mouse Cursor on Windows 7
Edited by Lukward Thomason, Eng
Hi, you're watching VisiHow, and this is a tutorial on how to move the mouse cursor using the keyboard on Windows 7 computers. We'll set this up in the Control Panel.
First, click the Start menu button on the lower left corner of the screen.
Then click on "Control Panel".
Once the Control Panel window opens, we need to click on the "Ease of Access" link.
On the next screen, click on the link, "Ease of Access Center".
Once it's open, scroll down if needed and select "Make the mouse easier to use". Click that once.
In this section, we need to click the box, "Turn on Mouse Keys". This will add a check to the box.
Click on "Set up Mouse Keys" to set up your preferences. The first item listed is "Turn on Mouse Keys", but the same thing was in the previous menu so we don't need to click it on this screen.
The next section is the shortcut. We can turn on the mouse keys by left Alt+left SHIFT+NUM LOCK at the same time.
In the next section, "Pointer speed", you can choose and set the "Top speed" and the speed of the "Acceleration" of the pointer.
Alternatively, we can click "Hold down Ctrl to speed up and SHIFT to slow down".
In the next section, "NUM LOCK" function, if you prefer to use the mouse keys when NUM LOCK is on, then you should click "On". If you prefer otherwise, then you should click "Off".
Once sure that everything is set up according to your preferences, click "OK".
From here, we need to click "Turn on Mouse Keys" again.
Once everything is set up, you can see that the Mouse Keys icon is displayed on the system tray. This means that you can now move your pointer using the number keys on the right side of your keyboard.
This concludes our tutorial on how to move the mouse cursor with the keyboard on Windows 7 computers. Thank you for watching VisiHow. If you have any comments or questions, please leave them in the comments section below.
