Mouse buttons left right switching sticky keys

Remember you can always use the keypad in place of the mouse. Try replacing the mouse with another one. If that doesn't work, it is probably something in the software. Do a scan on the system next.

Need the ability to "tab" from field to field on right of kybd

When you press ENTER to finish working in a cell, Microsoft Excel moves the cursor one cell down by default. However, you can select the direction in which you want the cursor to move.
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. On the Edit tab, do one of the following:
    • To change the direction in which the cursor moves, select the Move selection after Enter check box, and then select a direction in the Direction box.
    • To keep the cursor in the current cell, clear the Move selection after Enter check box.
Note When a range or set of ranges is selected, pressing ENTER moves the cursor within the range or set or ranges only.
