    Win10 arrow keys move the cursor even when that setting is set to off


    Hey so I've seen this problem come up before from a quick Google search but the solution people always say is to turn off the 'use the numeric keypad to move the mouse pointer' option from the accessibility settings.

    Mine is telling me its already off but ever since this morning the cursor is still getting moved by the arrow cursors. How can I stop this from happening?

    Hi Dakirel. Welcome to the TenForums @Dakirel

    The cursor (single vertical line) in text is different than the mouse pointer.

    With yours set off is the mouse pointer (the arrow head ) moving with these keys or is it the cursor in a line of text that moves?


    If cursor in text not sure how you would shut that off, it is inherent to keyboard function. Num Lock on will disable but then you will get numbers when you tap.

    Hey Ken,

    Sorry I meant it moves the actual mouse pointer, but it's okay now it's seemed to have fixed itself. Thanks anyway.
