I'm not sure anyone can help me, I'm using a laptop and the arrows are not working in the game. I went to navigation settings and it all looks fine, is there something I have to do on the laptop?

Maybe if you gave some specs on your laptop, someone might recognize the issue.

That would makes sense :)

Windows 8
Lenovo Intel Core i7-3520mCPU @ 2.90gh
Ideapad p500
8gb RAM
64-bit OS, x64-based processor

Is that what what's needed?

Shorah Mr. Hevy,

there are two common issues in navigation. The first one is that, using usual settings too, it randomly becames impossible to turn character with mouse, it is possible to do it just with arrows only, until game is closed and restarted.
An other problem occours when playing on wide monitors and when putting down the game with Alt+Tab or Windows Key: the horizontal movement is slowed when controlled with the mouse, like as the mouse sensivity lowers for the horizontal value. Again restarting the game solves the issue.
But you told us about an other issue. Did you already tried to change settings? Are you using a built-in keyboard?
Unfortunatly Uru has not shortcuts settings, so keys can not be set separatly. Did you tried with AWSD commands? Just to eliminate any possibility.
Last question: which is the specs of your monitor?

Thank you. I did try to use the WASD keys, that is what my left-handed daughter uses in Minecraft, but it doesn't work here. I'm using the laptop keyboard.

All I can find on the monitor is that it's a Generic PnP monitor, Intel Graphics 4000.

I'm thinking she can't play unless I hook up another keyboard

Two things to try.
1- Have tested the 4 arrows keys with the on screen keyboard ?

I've done something as simple as forgetting my keyboard's number pad has a "num lock" setting, which overrides the arrow keys. (but a laptop probably doesn't have that feature)

Reviving an old topic but did anyone ever find a fix for the no turning with mouse issue? I'm running on a Win 10 Bootcamp on Mac and can't turn. but when i play in Mac OS with wine it works fine.

I don't know about Win10 Bootcamp in MAC but for a standard Win10 instance the solution by Sirius at viewtopic.php?f=40&t=28767&start=75 (page 6 about 8 posts down) works like a charm.
