Working Around A Broken Mouse


SUBSTITUTE MOUSE
Q. Is there a way to operate the mouse cursor if my mouse fails? I’ve had the experience twice when I was at a client’s office with my laptop: In one case the mouse button broke, and in the other, the mouse software malfunctioned.

A. I do know of one program, called the Mouse Emulator, that let’s you do that. When you run it, it shows you which keys move the mouse cursor. The program is free and runs under Windows NT/9x (that’s 2000 and XP). To download it, go to www.geocities.com/pronto4u/mouseemulator.html .
