A Little Ease of Access: The Keyboard Way

Have you ever wondered if everything on your computer could be done with just your keyboard and no mouse use at all? Well, I’m happy to report that yes, it is indeed possible with a cool little feature in Windows Vista called Ease of Access. So, come along with me as I take you through the steps needed to configure this new feature on your very own computer. Here we go!

1.) Click Start and then Control Panel.

2.) When the Control Panel opens, click on the Ease of Access link.

3.) When that window opens, select Ease of Access Center.

4.) Now, the Ease of Access Center window will open. Once it does, scroll down and click on the option that says “Make the keyboard easier to use.”

5.) When that window opens, checkmark the “Turn on mouse keys” box.

That’s it. Here’s to adding a little more ease to your life (at least when it comes to your keyboard and mouse!)
