No coffee for my mouse, please

BY J. CARLTON COLLINS, CPA

Q: I spilled coffee on my mouse, and it stopped working. I then was unable to operate certain software on my Windows computer that requires mouse movements until I purchased a replacement mouse. I am curious to know if there is a way to perform mouse movements in Windows without actually having a mouse.

A: Windows provides a mouse alternative called Mouse Keys. To activate Mouse Keys, simultaneously press the Left Alt+Left Shift+NumLock keys. Thereafter, toggling your NumLock key on will allow you to control the mouse pointer using your numeric keypad’s arrow keys.
