Hi. I got my mac in today. My Apple Pro Keyboard Arrived today also, but my Pro Mouse didn't make it in time. What are the essential keys for using the OS without a mouse? I found a list for OSX, but some don't work...

How do I get into the Apple Menu (far left, top of screen)?
How do I open an application? Enter doesn't work.

Thanks,

Nick

Ctrl + F2

Open an app with Command+O.

EDIT: D'oh, owned by the "Get New" menu. I didn't realize this was "Classic OS forum" and gave you commands for OS X... :p

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

I've read that OSX has a Mouse Control thing where you can use the numpad to control the mouse. Is that possible with OS9?

Thanks,

Also, ANY USB mouse will work so if you have an extra one around you can use it until your other mouse comes.

Well, I'm a PC guy and the only thing close to a USB Mouse would be a PS/2 Mouse with a PS/2-USB Adapter but it's doesn't work. The mouse lights up (optical) but Mac OS doesn't recognize it.

What kind of mouse is it? The manufacturer's site might have driver downloads for OS 9. Would be worth checking out if you haven't already.

It's some cheap-o $5 GE Optical Mouse. I also have a Compaq PS/2 Mouse and an Logitech Wireless PS/2 Mouse/Keyboard Combo.

OK. I found Easy Access 7.2 and I downloaded it because it contains the "MouseKeys" feature. I get into the Easy Access 7.3 Menu and it says:

(That was a screenshot from a website, not my computer)

Is there a way to move the selector in the "off" bubble over to the "on" bubble? I'm so close!

Thanks,
Nick
