...switching mouses and that doesn't help either.
...finding out it is literally impossible to navigate Gmail without a mouse. (Any website you can't navigate with tabs when your mouse is broken is poorly designed.)
...finding out that the keyboard controls for the cursor, up in the accessibility menu, won't work either.
...trying to make sure you're doing it right by Googling "how to move the cursor without a mouse" and being unable to get to the page that explains it.
...reading the preview text as a last resort, trying it, finding it SHOULD be working, and isn't.
...having to restart.
Thank Goddess the mouse worked again after the restart!
