Control Your Mouse Via The Keyboard With NeatMouse

NeatMouseIf you ever wondered (or wished at times) you could control your mouse pointer via your keyboard; well, you can with NeatMouse.

I recently installed a wireless mouse and was sporadically running into a problem where it would lose its’ connection to my PC. I eventually resolved the issue; but, during the times I was without a mouse I would fire up the portable version of NeatMouse in order to navigate the computer. Did you ever try to navigate around your computer without your mouse?  It can be done, but it is not easy.

What I like about NeatMouse is that it uses the numpad keys on your keyboard and is setup in such a way that it actually will come natural to you.

NeatMouse key bindings


Another thing I like about NeatMouse is that it also is available as a portable app. If you are one of the techie types, NeatMouse is one of those utilities you may want to consider adding to your tech toolbox. It is also available as a full Windows software install. During the installation you will be given option to do the full install or to install as a portable app.

Features of NeatMouse are:

  1. NeatMouse can be activated by one of the following keys: Num Lock, Scroll Lock, Caps Lock, or by the custom hotkey.
  2. Select one of the Ctrl, Alt or Shift buttons for alternate speed modifiers. When this button is pressed, mouse pointer moves with alternate speed.
  3. Select one of the Ctrl, Alt or Shift for no-emulation mode. When this button is pressed and you press a keyboard button bound to the mouse action, this button performs its primary task as if there is no mouse emulation.
  4. Specify regular and alternate mouse speed.
  5. Bind keys for moving mouse left, right, up, down, and diagonally.
  6. Bind keys for left mouse button click, right mouse button click, middle mouse button click.
  7. Bind keys for scrolling up and down.
  8. Manage custom user settings: if you use portable version of NeatMouse, you can create different settings for your laptop and workstation.

By default, the mouse control keys for NeatMouse located on the keyboard numpad. The default key bindings can be altered.

  1. It will not be “natural to you” if you are left handed. When will reviewer of hardware and software take account of the needs of 8% of the population. For years when using the numpad I’ve always had to move my left hand across the keyboard because no one produces one with the numpad on the left. Whats natural to you is not natural to us.
