Re: [Solved] Activating the Mouse with NVDA

The numpad divide key is the / on the number pad specifically, and the numpad multiply is the * which is next to it. Having a number pad (a block of keys with numbers, and symbols setup very similar to a conventional desktop calculator) is usual on desktop keyboards. With laptop keyboards some do have a number pad (especially those with larger screens) and some don't, which is why NVDA has a desktop keyboard layout and a laptop keyboard layout listed for some commands (some are the same for both). In the case of the mouse keys, there is a different set for desktop layout and laptop layout: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#NavigatingWithTheMouse
If you are interesting in using the keyboard to move the mouse, there is also a golden cursor add-on to enhance this functionality: https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/goldenCursor.en.html Also, I would say for the majority of tasks, there should ideally be a better keyboard way of accomplishing it than manipulating the mouse like this - although of course knowing these commands is definitely useful at times as well.
