/ Computer mouse problem
Normally you can use tab to cycle through the window options and hit space bar to tick.
That's what i'm currently doing but it won't cycle on to the tick box it just jumps from the mouse tab at the top to ok or cancel but won't access the tick box. :(
And there I was thinking that WinME was dead... It really was Microsoft's worst ever offering. IMO Win98SE or Win2K are much better if legacy support is a must. Anyway, I have two suggestions:
Sometimes a combination of tab and arrow keys gets you places tab alone can't get you.
If you know what file is corrupt or missing, you might be able to fix it with a boot disk.
try hitting space when you've got the mouse tab selected... that should then allow you to tab around the mouse tab
Thanks for your help, tried hitting space when the mouse tab is selected to no avail and also tried the tab and arrow keys. I think I need to try and find the boot disk but after 14 years and two house moves it's looking unlikely. :)
do you know what the missing file is called? you might be able to download it.
14 years is very good for a PC... it might not be long in this world
Get your Windows Manual. In it is a list of keystrokes. This should be enough to perform a wide range of actions in the OS.
Get to an internet search for windows keystrokes and you should find an even more comprehensive list.
(Not only can you operate Windows with keys but I have seen satellite earth station technicians run up computers and operate motion-controlled earth stationS with only a keyboard and no mouse OR MONITOR.)
Here's another thought.
In earlier versions of windows, drives weren't always very coherent. If the driver is broken, it may be that other mouse drivers still work. You could try plugging in a serial/ps2/usb mouse.
