Question

Smart TV / wireless keyboard / how to move cursor?

by knightwings / January 6, 2013 7:44 AM PST

I have a Smart TV PN51E550.
I also have a bluetooth keyboard (logitech 920-003390).
The TV connects to the keyboard with no problem.
However I can't figure out how to move the cursor to the URL box in the browser so that I can type in the address I want. There is no touch pad on the keyboard.
Is there a way to move the cursor to where I want (including clicking on links on a web site) using the TV remote? Or do I have to buy a keyboard with a trackpad?

Did you try the Tab button?

Sorry but if my mouse dies I've learned to use the tab key.

Hi knightwings,

The method is quite straightforward. The directional buttons on the remote move around the cursor on the screen, and to left-click, you simply use the select button in the center of the directional buttons.
