My mouse has stopped moving. What do I do?

If your mouse freezes or the cursor disappears, it can be tough to do anything. This is where keyboard shortcuts come to the rescue. Press “ALT” and “F4” together to open the shutdown menu, then restart your device. When it reboots, things should be working correctly.

I’m trying to upload a Word document, but it needs to be a PDF
