If you are using the latest JAWS 2022 then you can switch temporarily to the default settings, to find out is this related to JAWS or not.
To do that in JAWS 2022
Press JAWS key + space bar.
If the problem persist, then it is not from JAWS
To restore your settings, press again INS+Space, then z
If you do not have the latest JAWS, you can cut all files from your user settings folder to a temporary folder for a second to check is it a setting or a script, what causes that.
Second possible solution. Maybe you have accidentally turned-on mouse keys in settings.
To turn mouse keys off (I have here Windows 11. I can not check in Windows 10)
Open Windows settings (Win+i)
Or move to Accessibility option, open it (enter)
Move to Mouse option, open it (Enter)
Tab to Mouse keys option. If is turned on, turn it off with space bar
No more ideas unfortunately

Hi all, thanks for all the suggestions but none worked. I spent almost an hour on the phone with Microsoft disability yesterday, but he couldn’t get it to work either. It is certainly strange that it works when locked, but not when unlocked. I miss the jaws and pc cursors. Any other possible suggestions would be appreciated. Judy & Libby
