anyone notice that during this entire discussion, the word performing was
misspelled preforming? I have changed the subject line to reflect correct

In the default
"out of the box" state for JAWS, the mouse pointer/PC Cursor does not stay
tethered to the JAWS cursor. So your earlier statement that you thought
the JAWS Cursor location was always where the mouse pointer was as well was
Unless you use commands such as you've noted to change the
default behavior, the mouse pointer doesn't really follow anything JAWS is
doing, nor does the PC Cursor (and the two can be considered synonymous) in many
instances. They are disconnected from each other under many typical
circumstances. And so long as everything that needs to be accomplished can
be done by keyboard commands alone, that doesn't often matter, but at times it
really does matter.
That's precisely why there are commands to route the
JAWS cursor to the PC Cursor location and the PC Cursor to the JAWS Cursor
location so that the two are indeed co-located.
I'm not going to argue
the point that the mouse pointer and the PC Cursor are synonymous as far as
getting "click control" on something that allows it. If you are on
something in the JAWS cursor that requires a right or left click and it's an
occasion where the PC cursor is not following the JAWS cursor, you have to route
the PC Cursor to the JAWS cursor before issuing a click.
There are times,
like when using File Explorer, where the JAWS Cursor and PC cursor are virtually
always locked together just based on how that program works. But there are
lots of other instances where they are definitely not in lock step with each
other and you need to route one to the other.
