To do so, you need to navigate the pointing devices configuration screens using the [Tab] and [Arrow] keys. The steps required are listed below.

3. Press [Tab] key to tab down to "Additional mouse options" link at the bottom of the window. When link is highlighted, press [Enter] button. The Mouse Properties dialog box will appear.

4. Use the [Ctrl][Tab] keys to select the Hardware tab.

5. On the Hardware tab, in the Devices: list, use the arrow keys to highlight the device in the list.

6. Use the [Tab] key to highlight the [Properties] button and click on the button. The Properties dialog box for that specific device will appear.

7. In the device's Properties dialog box, press the [Tab] key to tab down to the [Change settings] button.
