I have been watching a lot of youtube lately, sometimes to 2.30 in the morning, yes I know that is sad but I can't sleep lately.
Now not so much a problem but more a pain in the butt, it's the adverts that say in 5 seconds press your left mouse button or something like that.
Is there a way to just let the mouse pointer hover over the ad but press a key on the keyboard?
Why do I need to not just press my mouse you ask, well it's my hand that controls the mouse, it has a mind of its own, been like this for several years since I had an operation on my spine.
Any suggestions would be gratefully received, even at 2.30 in the morning.

I love my spell checker.
Have a nice day to one and all.

Google it as there is a way to use your left right up down arrows and pressing a key but it slightly changes on different pc's or laptops.

I watch a lot of youtube and if you have a smart tv it is usually free, ads are annoying I just mute them and when it says Skip ads I just have to press one button on my sky remote and it is done no pointer to worry about, so much easier than using the laptop and a mouse.

It is certainly possible and is one of the Easy Access Options installed in Windows, you can go all out and swap your mouse entirely for your keyboard, assigning different keys for different mouse functions, or just assign one or two for the essential mouse click option you are seeking.

Type in something like "using keyboard for mouse clicks" and plenty will come up explaining in detail how to do it, one specifically from Microsoft explaining their feature.

There is already a way of using your Keyboard Caretaker , take a look at this video ,
Laptop Touchpad TRICKS every user should know! [TOUCHPAD GESTURES] <<< click it ... you can also use one finger ....

Also to get rid of your youtube adds all together you can down load a add blocker , here's one i use ... but remember to Disable it for buzz as the screen goes all blurry .. wink.png Surf the web with no annoying ads ... <<< click it

Pm me if you decide to get it and you need to know how to use it , it is free and simple to use .... Rue ..
