    Ok, I want to get to the blanc area of the screen without using the mouse, the goal is not to take my fingers off the keyboard. I cannot tab to the blanc area, so each time I have to reach over to the mouse, put it on a the blanc area of the screen and click, then I can continue. Is my question clear?

    Keyboard Tabbing only selects or highlights icons/programs, it doesnt select or highlight blank areas.

    Yes, that is what I am saying, I cannot tab to the blanc area of the screen, but I want to get to the blanc area of the screen but I do not want to reach over the mouse to do it, how do I get there then, can it be done, any help on this welcome.

    [background; I like using hotkeys and keyboard buttons more than the mouse]

    You could see if enabling arrow keys (for mouse function) in accessability will do that for you.
