Option 2: Mouse Emulator
Mouse Emulator works in a very similar way to mouse keys, except I find it slightly better, as it has a better diagonal moving control than MouseKeys. It’s a small and free program, only 10kb, downloadable here http://www.geocities.com/pronto4u/mouseemulator.html. It’s a simple, download and run program, so no installing needed.
Here are the controls for Mouse Emulator,
5 = Move Down 8 = Move Up 4 = Move Left 6 = Move Right 1 = Simulate Mouse Single Left Click 2 = Simulate Mouse Right Click 3 = Simulate Mouse Middle Click 7 – Mousewheel up (Scroll) 9 – Mousewheel down (Scroll) CTRL + 0 – Enable/Disable Mouse Emulator
If you’re wondering where Mouse Emulator went after you ran the program, it should be in your toolbar, looking like this:
So, there you have it, two clean and effective ways of using your computer, even if your mouse has died.
