You might faced an issue where the functionality of mouse was not working at all. You had tried everything possible solution but none of the solutions worked! What to do in such situations if you will have really important work and the same situation raised in future? Don't worry, we have solution for this. Windows have provided us the feature to use numpad as mouse. I have posted two ways below, one by using Windows by default functionality and other one by using third party application.

Key features of NeatMouse:
  • NeatMouse can be activated by one of the following keys: Num Lock, Scroll Lock, Caps Lock, or by the custom hotkey.
  • Select one of the Ctrl, Alt or Shift buttons for alternate speed modifiers. When this button is pressed, mouse pointer moves with alternate speed.

  • Specify regular and alternate mouse speed.
  • Bind keys for moving mouse left, right, up, down, and diagonally.
  • Bind keys for left mouse button click, right mouse button click, middle mouse button click.
