I have converted a guest OS mounted on Hyper-V server. However, my mouse couldn't work and I need to install the integration services.
Any idea how to use keystroke to select a particular window on the task bar ?  My mouse couldn't work and current the window focus on the desktop icons.

Hold down the ALT button and touch TAB (keep ALT PRESSED even after pressing TAB).  It will select the next window.  If you touch TAB again, it will select the next one, etc.  When the correct window is highlighted, let go of ALT and it will become the active window.

Another way is to get your focus off of the desktop and onto the start menu bar.  This is done by pressing <TAB> to move the focus.  If that doesn't work, try <ALT> <ESC> (or the windows button, if you have it) and then use the <TAB> and arrows keys to navigate the bar.
