    I am a new mac user so this is probably a stupid question

    I have a program that when it loads it turns off the trackpad, the book states it is a common and problem and that i just need to go into options and turn it back on. Well I can get into option by using the arrow keys but cannot change the different tabs at the top to get to the control section. I am basically stuck in the video option section (the first tab) and if I hit tab trying to go over it just cycles through the options in the current tab. Anyone know how to switch top tab items without using the mouse/touchpad. I know how to do this in windows just have no idea how to on a mac.

    I know this probably made no sense at all

    thanks I will go there and see if it works for it.

    It is a proprietary program used at my firm, program has a windows, linux and mac version. The one for macs disables the trackpad or mouse on start up. Not many people at work use macs so the tech team is not in any rush to fix it.
