How to move the BlackBerry 10 cursor to a specific location

BB10-Cursor

A friend of mine recently upgraded from a BlackBerry 9900 to a BlackBerry Q10. One of the first questions she asked me was how to move the cursor to a specific location since her new device doesn’t have a track pad.

The answer: it’s really easy! Provided you are using BlackBerry 10.1 OS, all you need to do is tap an area you’d like to edit, and move the cursor to a specific location when it appears.

Follow these steps:

  • Tap the top of the circle to move the cursor up one line.
  • Tap the bottom of the circle to move the cursor down one line.
  • Tap the left of the circle to move to the left, one character at a time.
  • Tap the right of the circle to move to the right, one character at a time.

In the event that you do not have a circular cursor, verify that your BlackBerry 10 smartphone is using BlackBerry 10.1 OS. To check your version from the home screen, select Settings, About and look for the OS Version. For help upgrading a BlackBerry 10 smartphone, visit http://blackberry.com/update
