How can I control the mouse pointer with keyboard (e.g. with arrow keys) on Windows OS?

Some computers I use have mice with bad sensitivity, so I sometimes need to have more precise mouse controls.

Note: I'm using Windows 7 personally but the computers I handle have different versions of Windows (2000, XP, Vista).


You don't specify which version of Windows you're using.

It should be possible with MouseKeys, one of the accessibility features of Windows. See more explanation here.

It's supported in Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7.

  • Thanks Snark, that's what I need. Please add MouseKeys shortcut to your answer (Alt+Shift+NumLock) for those who want to easily activate it. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Dec 1 '09 at 10:05
