    Sometimes, my wireless mouse loses all connectivity and its wiped out from the iMac's paired devices.

    So I need to re-pair it but I can't do it easily when my mouse is not working.

    So how do I get to the bluetooth menu and then click on "Set up New Device" all with the keyboard?

    I've learned to move the mouse arrow with my keypad but how do I access the menu and button directly with keyboard shortcuts?

    Appreciate the help,

    JH

    To activate the Bluetooth Menu on the right side of the Menu Bar using a keyboard:


    1) Control+F8 --or-- Control+fn+F8
    2) Right arrow over to the bluetooth menu
    3) Down arrow to activate the bluetooth menu
    4) Use the up/down arrows and left/right arrow keys to do the stuff you want


    I use this technique when I have to change the batteries on my mouse. Enjoy.
