There are lots of ways to make the devices that you use to interact with your PC—like a mouse or keyboard—easier to use.
Make the mouse easier to use
You can use your mouse settings to make your pointer easier to follow on-screen, change your pointer size, and more:
- 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.
To make the pointer, cursor, and touch feedback larger or easier to see, select the Start button, then select Settings > Ease of Access > Cursor & pointer size .
Make the keyboard easier to use
If you want to make your keyboard easier to use, 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. This lets you select keys using the mouse or another pointing device (like a joystick), or use a single switch to cycle through the keys on the screen.
Sticky Keys are helpful if you have trouble pressing two keys at the same time. Sticky Keys let you press commands that use multiple keys (such as Ctrl + S) one key at a time.
Toggle Keys play a sound whenever you press the Caps lock, Num lock, or Scroll lock keys.
Filter Keys set the sensitivity of the keyboard so it can ignore brief or repeated keystrokes.
You can also control your PC with just your voice using Windows speech recognition. To learn more, see Use speech recognition.
