    How do you move an object using the arrow keys. I heard mention of this in a video, but it doesn't work for me. What am I missing?
    Thanks in advance!

    Using your arrow keys to move stuff around! Some folk have problems using a mouse, here is a method utilizing MS Windows "Mouse Keys". It uses the numeric keypad (the far right of the keyboard) and there is a slight learning curve-- it only took me 10 minutes to be really proficient!

    You need to enable MOUSE KEYS in Windows. There is a slight learning curve, but I've done it, and became quite proficient at it--- I now keep it running in the background all the time just in case my cordless mouse stops working, and I can't find my backup usb mouse.

    MouseKeys is designed for people who have difficulty using a mouse. MouseKeys allows you to use the numeric keypad (NOT the numbers just above the QWERTY key row) to control the mouse pointer. If you want to use the numeric keypad for data entry as well as for navigation, you can set the MouseKeys to be activated by pressing NUM LOCK.

    1. Open Accessibility Options
    To open Accessibility Options, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Accessibility Options

    2. On the Mouse tab, under MouseKeys, select the Use MouseKeys check box.
    To turn off MouseKeys, clear the Use MouseKeys check box.

    To turn on MouseKeys using keystrokes
    1. Press left ALT + left SHIFT + NUM LOCK.
    2. In the MouseKeys message dialog box, press SPACEBAR to clear the Turn off keyboard shortcut for this accessibility feature check box.
    3. Press TAB, and then press ENTER.

    If MouseKeys does not turn on using the keystrokes above, follow the steps below.
    1. Press the Windows logo key ([​IMG]) + R to display the Run dialog box.
    2. Type access.cpl and press ENTER.
    3. Press CTRL+TAB until the Mouse tab is selected.
    4. To select Use MouseKeys, press SPACEBAR.
    5. Press TAB twice to select OK, and then press ENTER.

    Note:To change settings for MouseKeys, on the Mouse tab, click Settings.

    If the Use shortcut check box in the Settings for MouseKeys dialog box is selected, you can turn MouseKeys on or off by pressing left ALT+left SHIFT+NUM LOCK.​

    Accessibility options in Win 8 (At least in the win* Release Preview) are even easier to get to and start up!
