    Most of us will want a mouse alternative only when the cursor cannot be moved generally for reasons unknown. You can’t even execute a normal shutdown.
    This “tip” is nigh useless under these circumstances because you need to turn on features thst are not normally enabled.
    Now if we could perhaps have a method where the two methods of moving the cursor were available that might be genuinely useful.
