    Question how do i move cursor with a keyboard?

    ive looked for lots of threads on this but i do not have a keypad nor a numlock key on my keyboard.

    im looking for any way, either setting or other program that i can use/download to customize my keys in some way to make the arrow keys on my keyboard move the cursor on my screen.

    look in your mouse/accessibility preferences
    if you want something more powerful look at xdotool and combine it with hot keys

    Code:
    xdotool mousemove_relative 5 -5
