JKLmouse Modeless Automatic Keyboard Mouse (Windows - Free)

The Modeless Automatic Keyboard Mouse for Notebook and Laptop Computers

Why a keyboard mouse?
Do you ever want to move something on the screen by exactly one pixel? Or two? Or three? Or line up a window or object precisely where you want it? That's hard to do with any pointing device, but it's easy with a keyboard mouse.

If you have a desktop computer running Windows, you can enable MouseKeys and turn your numeric keypad into a keyboard mouse. Then just press a key on the numeric pad to move the mouse cursor pixel by pixel in any direction.

Why JKLmouse?
Alas, MouseKeys works poorly on notebook computers. Without a dedicated numeric pad, MouseKeys has to use the numeric pad that is overlaid on the QWERTY keyboard in some notebook computers. So, you have to switch MouseKeys on and off, or at least toggle Num Lock, every time you want to use the keyboard mouse.

JKLmouse is designed for notebook computer keyboards, and it's modeless. There's no special "JKLmouse mode" to switch on and off. JKLmouse doesn't interfere with normal keyboard operation—it's ready to use all the time.

Best of all, it's easy to seamlessly combine normal TrackPoint or touchpad use with JKLmouse: start with the pointing device for large movements and then use JKLmouse to nail down the exact pixel location.
