Make the mouse easier to use
To access mouse settings, select the Start button, then select Settings > Ease of Access > Mouse .
- Turn on the toggle under Control your mouse with a keypad if you want to control your mouse using a numeric keypad.
- Select Change other mouse options to change your primary mouse button, set scrolling options, and more.
- If you want your pointer to display a trail across the screen when you move it, select Additional mouse options, and check the box next to Display pointer trails on the Pointer Options tab.
Make the mouse pointer and text cursor easier to use
To make the mouse pointer, text cursor, and touch feedback larger or easier to see, select Cursor & pointer settings below, or select the Start button, then select Settings > Ease of Access > Cursor & pointer .
Make the keyboard easier to use
If you want to make your keyboard easier to use, select Keyboard settings below, or select the Start button, then select Settings > Ease of Access > Keyboard , and try some of these options:
- Turn on the toggle under Use the On-Screen Keyboard to select keys by using the mouse or another pointing device (like a joystick) or to use a single switch to cycle through the keys on the screen.
