HOW: Use keyboard to control mouse cursor

Q: HOW: Use keyboard to control mouse cursor

How can I control the mouse cursor with my keyboard in Windows XP Pro? Sure it may not be as nice as the mouse and therefore I wouldn't use it always. Just when I code and need to do a little navigating. This way I wouldn't need to keep swaping from keyboard to mouse.

Preferred Solution: HOW: Use keyboard to control mouse cursor

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: HOW: Use keyboard to control mouse cursor

I don't know if Win XP has the function, but go to Start, Help and search for mousekey.

In win98, you would enable it by going to accessibility options and turning it on there.

Hi All, I visit thee forums frequently but rarely post. Anyhow, on to my issue -

I am running an HTPC on Win7 64-bit. I have a Microsoft Arc keyboard, no mouse. I can do most navigation, etc with a keyboard fine (majority of the time it's in Media Center anyhow) but there are a few applications/buttons that are inaccessible without using a mouse/cursor. Windows has Mouse Keys built-in but you must use the numeric keypad to control which is not an option for me (or most laptop users probably). I have done some searching but haven't found a solution yet. Ideally, in a perfect world, I wish I could do something as simple as when I hold down another button the arrow keys could be used to move mouse instead of normal arrow key movement.

A:Help Please! Control mouse/cursor with keyboard lacking numeric keypad

hum....and can you please tell me again why buying of an USB mouse is not an option for you?

I think I've acquired a pesky little virus which is becoming rather irritating. For the past 3 days, when I start up my computer (even after restarts and whatnot), the cursor moves to the top of the screen then to the right and stays there. If I move the mouse so that the cursor moves onto the screen, it simply moves back to the top and right fast enough so that my mouse is basically useless right now. I've tried to system restore from safe mode, but I must have gotten this thing planted from earlier than my system restore goes. I've also tried 3 different mouses, two laser vision and one ball, all with the same result. I've also tried running a full scan, but it found no malicious content. I don't know what else to try other than reinstalling Windows, which I would prefer to not have to go through that hassle. I have a desktop IBM running Windows XP. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I am having major problems with the mouse.

The cursor's movement is erratic when using the mouse and it is almost impossible to get it to move where it needs to go. It appears as if the mouse and cursor are fighting eash other. The cursor mainly wants to go on to the left ahnd side of the screen which makes it difficult to do almost anything .

I am running XP and have tried a number of different mice - including P/S 2 and USB. I have reformatted the hard drive - rather drastic I know but wasn't sure it was an XP problem. I have run virus scans with Kaspersky 7.0 - and found nothing.

This is making the computer almost unusable so I would welocme any suggestions.

Thanks in hope

My googlefu has failed me.
Most of the returns are for solutions for the exact opposite (cursor hidden not showing)
The ones that are for my trouble send me to control panel check box that I have checked.

I am using a Logitech G500 mouse, the bloatware (SetPoint) has no cursor "hide" option. Though it does not seem to matter the driver (win 7 ultimate standard system or Logitech) I use.

Seems a trivial issue other than I have a gift for clicking the dialogue box right where I prefer to see a word that the cursor obfuscates.

Any ideas or further information needed?

I'm running an Acer Aspire with Windows 7 that I bought back in February. Since I've owned it, I've had an intermittent issue wherein the mouse and keyboard inputs slow way down: the pointer will "stutter" when I move the mouse and there's a small delay to all my keyboard inputs. Just for s&g, I opened up the Performance tab in Task Manager the last time the problem cropped up (about 20 minutes ago), and my CPU usage shot up to 50% or more when I moved the mouse; normally it's about 20%.

In any case, simply restarting gets rid of the problem, at least for a few days or so, sometimes longer.

Any ideas as to what might be causing this and how to fix it?

Hi guys, need your help!

The cursor scrolls automtically, not in all programs - but in youtube it puts the volume up to max, or in the search bar it scrolls all the way to the right - in photoshop it keeps scrolling the window to the max right, or in notepad it scrolls all the way down to the bottom. Even on the settings in windows 10 I find it difficult to click on what I want as it scrolls down to the bottom straight away

I ve tried a different keyboard, also tried the keyboard testor to see if one of the keys were switched on somehow, and I ve unplugged the mouse and it still happens. So I am out of ideas!

Is there a way to move the focus to check boxes on websites and in programs without using the mouse?

Let's say you're in the options menu of a program like Firefox or MS Office, and there are options with boxes you can check or uncheck. I want to be able to navigate to the boxes using the keyboard instead of the mouse.

What I find is, you usually can move the focus to the item description (i.e. highlight the text) using Tab, but that only gets to the item description, not the check box. Which is odd, because why would anyone ever need to highlight the text in a program's menus?

Once in a while it does work - you can tab to the check box and check/uncheck using something like shift-click. But I can't remember where that works. Maybe MS Office but I don't have it on this computer.

I am on a laptop, where it would save a lot of moving the mouse around. It might not be much of a time-saver on a desktop.

I have read that windows 7 requires a KVM with active DDC or DDC - EDID to function correctly.
Trying to find this out for the various units is time consuming, It usually isn't noted on the web sites.

I have a hi res monitor, VGA connector with 2 usb, mouse and keyboard. I just want to control 2 PCS.

Does anybody know of any reasonably priced units meeting these requirements ??

A:KVM control 2 PCs, mouse and keyboard

Sorry, my Win 7 computer still has the legacy PS/2 ports and works fine to control 2 computers. I forgot to mention my two KVM switches, with sound as well are IOGear.
a KVM with active DDC or DDC - EDID to function correctly.Click to expand...

That might be because of the USB ports. I'll have to looking to see what it means.
Here are three different IOGear units, all with 4 egg ratings.
The first is controlled by a button, the last by a hot key (on mine I press scroll lock twice in rapid succession to switch computers). No mention of how you get the middle unit to switch between the two computers.

I did some reading and it is a problem with monitors.
Multiple monitors: http://raywoodcockslatest.blogspot.com/2011/03/windows-7-kvm-in-multimonitor-setup.html

I can't guarantee you won't have this problem with one monitor connected by VGA.
I do notice I sometimes have wrong screen size settings but only if I boot a non-7 computer before the Win 7.

Well, this is embarrassing. Basically this is the equivalent of locking your keys outside your car with it running.

What I did:
I used gpedit.msc to restrict windows from automatically installing generic drivers.

What I did after:
I went on a driver deleting/rebooting frenzy in device manager to remove various drivers and their duplicates. In the process I deleted my keyboard and mouse drivers.

Why I did it:
I'm currently trying to diagnose a BSOD error, and I'm installing fresh drivers from the ground up for all devices.

In my BSOD diagnosing rage, I deleted the keyboard/mouse drivers without even thinking about the consequences. I plugged in PS/2 keyboard/mouse assuming it would work. WRONG.

Now what the hell am I supposed to do?

A:Help me get control of my keyboard/mouse!!!

First of all, keep calm. Drink some hot tea. Why did you want to restrict your computer from installing drivers automaticly anyway?

It would be wonderful if you had some kind of abillity to acces the computer on remote, like using logmeing or something. this way you can access your computer by remote and reinstall the drivers.

Otherwise I'd say you're somewhat forced to make a fresh reinstall...

Hello, and thanks for being here.

I am working on my mother's computer. She has Windows XP SP3. Recently, she had a Microsoft keyboard stop working, so she had it replaced and had her system 'cleaned' by the local computer shop. Now the mouse is not working. The scroll only works some of the time, and often the window jumps around haphazardly as though you are spinning the scroll wheel up and down erratically.

I installed Security 360 and Spybot S&D and did scans. S360 found a Trojan, a Keylogger, and something else, but they were all in Restore files, so I don't know if they are active or not. Spybot found only tracking cookies.

The mouse is still behaving erratically, and I suspect it's the keylogger making it do that. Also, the screen saver never comes on. The screen blinks when it is supposed to go to the screensaver, but then it quickly refreshes and goes back to the desktop. This occurs without any user input.

Can you help me figure out if any nasties are living in this machine? TIA

Hey everyone.

I hope this is the correct place for this kind of problem.

I would say, about two months or so ago, i starten having the problem where devices that are plugged in to the USB ports stopped responding.

Mouse went dead (Using the Logitech G9x, and the "sensitivity" light would start flashing)
Keyboard went dead
Headset sort of died, i still had sound, but i am unable to use voice.

Only solution was a "hard shutdown" of the computer.

The problem have been there since then, with an average crash every other day, and some days up to 3-4 times.

I'm not sure what other information i should add, but let me know and i will supply it.

Thanks in advance

Ever since I built this computer a few weeks ago, the first time I boot it up I'll get a stop error while starting Windows. Upon restarting, I have no keyboard or mouse control when Windows attempts to repair the problem. I've found that if I restart it enough, eventually keyboard/mouse control comes back, I can decline the system repair, and on the next reboot it boots normally. Subsequent restarts work fine, and even if I shut it down for several hours it will boot up fine. I've yet to boot normally on the first boot of the day , however.

I've run Prime95 blend test for several hours and had no errors.
Typically the bug check code is 0x000007e, and the affected driver is ntoskrnl.exe.

Hello, I have a semi-weird question. Is it possible to control multiple computers using one keyboard, mouse and monitor? I would like to be able to do the same task at the same time on many computers (8 or 10). I understand they would have to all be running the same operating system and screen resolution and pretty much same everything else. I know it is an odd question, but I was hoping that someone could tell me of a way to do it. A piece of hardware or software that would allow it. The computers will all be located in the same place, so no remote desktop connections are necessary. Please let me know if it is possible. Thanks so much!

I've heard this program works well with 2 computers, but I believe it is compatable with more than 2 computers. If it looks good to you then I would suggest going to the YouTube link for a tutorial to set it up. YouTube would be able to explain much more clearly than I could.

So anyways, my computer has been having these problems since yesterday. The entire computer would completely freeze, and I would have no mouse or keyboard control. If I have music in the background, that stops playing, or just loops the same 10 seconds over and over.

I've opened up the side and made sure nothing was lose, cleaned out the dust that was in it. Ran a few scans (Spyware Doctor, Ad-Aware, Trend Micro, Norton, Uniblue SpyEraser that have found nothing. Ran Uniblue SpeedUpMyPC and Registry Booster which didn't solve the problem either.

The components in my computer include:

Intel C2D E6600 @ 2.4GHz (Stock)
2 GB Mushkin Dual Channel RAM
BFG GeForce 7900 GS
700W OCZ GameXStream PSU
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE

And it's running Windows XP SP3 32-Bit (this problem started before I installed SP3)

Hi, I am looking for a good remote control for the keyboard and mouse on Windows 8. I had an Android app that I was using under Windows 7 but the mouse won't work under Windows 8. The developer said this is not possible on Windows 8 touch screen devices. I am now considering hardware remote controls but I'm concerned about the mouse issue before purchasing. Any input on keyboard and mouse remote controls that work under Windows 8/8.1 would be very welcome. Thanks!

A:Good Windows 8 Remote Control for Keyboard and Mouse

Hi, if you still have your Android phone or tablet you can use Vectir Remote Control. I am successfully using this for controlling the mouse and keyboard on a Windows 8 touch screen computer. It has a dedicated keyboard and mouse driver which will make it work on any Windows PC. It also works really well as a VLC and iTunes remote control.

Android remote control app download:

Vectir PC remote control download:
Vectir - IR, WiFi and Bluetooth Remote Control, Mobile Phone PC Media Player Controller

Hope I've helped!

Yesterday I successfully wiped my computer and reinstalled windows. Everything seemed to be fine until I tried to install the INF driver. It did its thing and then said click next to continue. At this point I realized my mouse and keyboard didn't work. I restarted the computer and noticed that the mouse and keyboard glowed as if they were working until windows started up at which point they stopped glowing and I couldn't use them. Because of this I'm pretty sure I have access to the BIOS options but nothing else. Does anyone know what went wrong or how I can fix this problem? A speedy response would be greatly appreciated as I now have limited access to a computer.

A:lost control of mouse and keyboard after installing INF driver

Try last known configuration. Instructions can be found here.

If successful do a driver rollback for the device you unsuccessfully updated. Instructions found here.

Hi everyone, I got a new mobo and cpu yesterday and after installing all the parts I put my old hdd in, after the pc boots I got an error; no hard disk detected. i know the hdd is fine because i put it back in my old build and it booted fine, i know when installing a new mobo you should format which ive been trying to do but when i reach the window where you choose the language theres no mouse or keyboard working, and i know the mouse and keyboard is fine because i used both in the boot menu. my current specs are p8z68-v asus intel i5 2500k nvidia 560ti asus corsair 850watts 8gb ram 500gb hdd ps; sorry for poor grammar and spelling mistakes but was forced to write this on my phone. Also, i looked in my bios and it clearly names both my hdd and blu ray drive.

A:New mobo doesn't detect HDD, no mouse or keyboard control in Windows setup

First, try the basics. Take out the 560 and just install the RAM, CPU, HDD and PSU and see if you can get to BIOS.

I have a Windows 7 mutli touch device and every time i touch the screen i get a stupid mouse graphic. Its really annoying because it has a tendency to get in the way when i am tapping around with my fingers on the screen. I have been unable to find anything
about such a "feature" on the webs. As various combinations including "mouse" and "graphic" and "windows 7" are pretty vanilla search terms.
I am guessing it is some lame "accessability" feature but i have no idea how to fix. please help

A:mouse graphic (not cursor) next to mouse cursor when touching screen

That is called the Touch Pointer, its easy to turn off once you know where to look.
Click Start, type pen in the search box or open control panel aand click Pen and touch.
Click the touch tab and uncheck Show the touch pointer... then just click ok to  close the dialog and the ghostly mouse picture will be gone.

This seems to happen mostly after alt tabbing from a game or even after closing a game. It doesn't matter if the game is full screen or borderless window.

What happens is that the cursor seems to not change into the appropriate cursor (or when it does it does it slowly), i.e. if I mouse over links I still get the arrow cursor instead of the hand cursor. The most annoying aspect is when it turns in to a text cursor split in half (see screenshot), it seems to go away after a while and returns to normal functionality, usually after moving it quite a bit.

I have tried changing the cursor style then changing back, as well as turning trails on and off.

Sorry for the quality of the screenshot I had to take it with my phone because I can't seem to capture the cursor. Happy to give more information on my system if required just not sure what you'd need atm.

my mouse cursor- an optical usb - is stuck in the middle of the screen. The mouse works, as I can still scroll on a webpage with it, and click on icons, but the cursor won't budge. I've also tried a PS-2 mouse, same issue, and have tested every USB port and all work fine so it is NOT a hardware issue that I can see. I've tried rebooting and doing a system restore, and I have the same issue in safe mode. When I go to device manager, it rcognizes the device and says everything is working properly. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, nothing. Everything else seems to be fine on my PC. Any help will be most appreciated, thank you!

A:Mouse cursor stuck in middle of screen, but mouse works

Is this a laptop or a desktop? What is the make and model# of your computer/motherboard?
Boot into Setup (Bios) go to Integrated Peripherals look for Legacy USB or USB mouse, if it is disabled, using the arrow key, Enable it. Save and Exit.
Go to the computer manufacturers support/download drivers site. type in your make and model # and download the Chipset driver (for USB Support)
Also, go to Start/Search and type CMD Right click the CMD results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type SFC /scannow and press enter. This will replace any missing or corrupted system files.

Hi,It appears I somehow deactivated my touchpad or something along those lines as my mouse pointer/cursor has completely disappeared? It was working fine yesterday, and I think the only thing that might have triggered this is that I accidentally pressed some keys (unsure of which ones, so I don't even know how to reverse it). I've tried restarting, as well as looked through some of the mouse/touchpad settings to no avail. If anyone can help me out, I'd greatly appreciate it (I'm currently relying on my fingers and the touchscreen which isn't as convenient)

My mouse cursor will randomly freeze or disappear, yet it remains active. I can still use it by feel. If I turn mouse trails on a duplicate mouse shows up that works and the frozen one remains, although its not completely frozen as it will still change into other cursors ie the hourglass. Eventually mouse trails turn off all on its own and im left with no cursor again. I've updated drivers and checked all the settings and am left with no solution. Any help would be very appreciated.

Hi. The other day my mouse-cursor just started to move and wiggle, chaotically, and by itself towards the right side of the screen.. I have tried to switch mouse and unplug, but it doesn't help, so I figure it has to be some kind of virus or malware, yea? When it happened I installed Trend Micro Internet Security and ran a scan of my computer. It came up with one so called "generic Trojan" named "services.exe" located in C:/Windows AND one virus named "a.exe" located in C:/Windows/System32.

I went into the windows folder and found the trojan file "services.exe" to maybe try and delete it, dunno if I should've, but I was pretty aggrevated at the time, but anyway I couldn't because I needed "permission" from vista. I also looked up the virus file called "a.exe" in the system32 folder, where trend micro told me it was, but I could not find it in any searches.

Anyway, this is all very frustrating to me, because I use my computer for work, and obviously a chaotically, wiggly mouse makes it quite hard for me to do anything at all.. so I would highly appreciate some help with getting rid of whatever it is doing this!

A:Mouse-cursor moves by itself, even when the mouse is unplugged

Welcome to TSF hoofbite,

Noooo, you sure do not want to be deleting files you are not sure of, and especially those like "services.exe" which is usually an essential (and protected) system file. Not seeing any infection here so far - let's run a repair scan then check after.

To keep them from interfering with the repairs, be sure to temporarily disable all antivirus/anti-spyware softwares while these steps are being completed. This can usually be done through right clicking the software's Taskbar icons, or accessing each software through Start - Programs.

Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here or Here.

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.

* Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select "Perform quick scan", then click Scan.
* The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.
* The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
* Copy and Paste the entire report in your next reply.... Read more

Hi Guys, so I've just finished a HTPC build and using HippoRemote on the iPhone to control Windows. Works great if I have a mouse plugged in but as soon as I remove the mouse the cursor hides itself. I can still click on things etc but it makes it pretty hard to do without the cursor being visible.

Is there a way to force Windows 8 to always show the cursor? I'm guessing it disables the cursor if no mouse is plugged in so one option is to buy a wireless mouse dongle and plug that in to trick Windows into thinking I am using a mouse, but I'd rather not if I don't have to.

Any ideas?

Hi I'm having a problem that I really can't seem to resolve: the image of my cursor freezes about 5 seconds after I log in, but the actual pointer still works i.e. I can still use the mouse, it's just that the cursor doesn't correspond to what I'm actually pointing at. At first this occurred randomly, sometimes after 25-30 mins of use, but now it does it every time, straight away.

One way I've found to get around it is to turn on mouse trails at the lowest setting, this lets me see the trails of the cursor (at the correct location), which at least lets me know what I'm clicking on.

I've tried:
Removing and reinstalling the drivers
Trying a different (ps/2) mouse
Trying a different USB port
Removing spyware etc with Spybot, AVG
Updating to the latest drivers
Updating Windows (which is when it changed from being random to every time)

Any ideas on this one?
Thanks in advance! James

A:Cursor Control

Welcome to Seven forums.
The blinking cursor is what you mean, along with the arrow cursor too? My first suggestion would be to unplug and replug both keyboard and mouse and/ or reboot the system.

Secondly you may have a bad mouse or keyboard, try a different one if possible.

well, this is my first time here and hopefully someone can help me out.

here goes, my cursor on my lap top (toshiba satellite p200 model, two years old now). the last handful of days now, my cursor and this occurs around this time late at night from 11pm or thru to 3am when i'm using my lap top.

i swear someone in another part of the world is at home messing just with me and my cursor!!! moving it via remote control to just mess with my mind!! arrrgh!

my settings are set to slow and the whole sensitivity is that of what i like, but lately, when i try to navigate on my screen with the cursor, weather it's moving it, or going to click on a link or opening a screen or minimizing it, well....seems it has a mind of it's own. i use the "touch pad" and whenever i move the cursor across the screen it will either, highlight things, or minimize things, or seem to select and or copy whatever it's on to a new tab or whatever else, some times it will seem to just zip over to another area of my screen!! i tell ya...i'm about two seconds from taking a sledge hammer to the lap top b/c it's pissing me off! it will do this for 20 or so minutes, then back to good, but then, again...yep...it'll start all over doing the same crap..it's like someone i said before, someone else is moving it.

soo, what can i do? probably is a virus right? i did do the hijackthis scan thing and i saved the log too.
