When I try to highlight a couple of files it doesn't work when I only use Mousekeys. When I use the right-click button and try to highlight with the arrow keys of the mumberpad nothing happens...how do I highlight files in Explorer using only Mousekeys?

Win 7 Pro.

Are you meaning to drag them or just highlight text? –  user142485 Sep 10 '12 at 21:41

If you are trying to highlight or select by dragging: Press 0, then move the cursor selecting the desired area and press . to stop.

If you are trying to select multiple files: Use 5 to click on a file, then hold Ctrl and press 5 to select additional files. Or to select all files in order: click the first file, hold Shift and click the last file to select all files in between and inclusive of the clicked files (same as with using the normal mouse).
