      Yes, I do use Alt-arrow often, but not enough time.

      I still remember somewhere the feature that I can change from short time
      to long time for the popup but I can not remember where is it. I am not
      sure that I use the demo of the pointer software. It was a long time ago.
      I heard that Windows XP has one now. This is my new computer with
      Windows XP.
