I’m trying to reinstall macOS Monterey.
Unfortunately, for whatever reason, they have decided that the mouse won’t work during the reinstall process. The pointer appears on screen but the mouse doesn’t move it. The mouse has been charged so I’m assuming that this is just a thing.
So anyway, a couple of screens into the install, the software licence agreement dialog has come up.
Question: How do I press Agree on this dialog?
I can scroll the text with the arrow keys, but neither Tab nor Shift-Tab move to the button panel below.
I can get to the main menu with fn-Ctrl-F2 but there is barely anything in it. I can also get to the keyboard input selector in the top right with fn-Ctrl-F8. (I was looking for some way to turn on more accessibility options.)
I am assuming there is some way for me to press this button, if Monterey really is the big improvement in accessibility that it was marketed as. In my case the mouse may not be getting paired as expected but in someone else’s case they may be unable to use a mouse at all.
