I need to operate within a DOS environment and am having great difficulty moving around using keyboard instructions. Is it possible to use a mouse in DOS and, if so, how do I install it please?

Yes you can, you need a DOS mouse driver. If you google search for it you will find many but its been so long since I used DOS I can't remember much about it except you download and install it to the C drive. I'm sure someone else will be able to help further.

Totally-braindead, Googled as you suggested and downloaded the first item on the list. Works absolutely perfect, thanks!

Good, to be honest it was that long ago since I used DOS I didn't think it would be quite that easy, I really thought there was something else.
Never mind as long as you're happy.
