After some time using the computer for different activities, you can master using your keyboard and mouse. However, some activities can still seem to take a lot of time, and repetition quickly becomes frustrating. Luckily, you can automate some processes when it comes to the mouse with the help of specialized applications like Mouse Click.
The application shows up on launch, with all functions stored in plain sight, making accommodation a walk in the park. There’s also a short description of the whole process so you know what needs to be done and how. When not used, the application can quietly sit in the system tray.
You need to manage two sections in order to fully define a task. The first steps is to pick the screen coordinates in pixels, for where the action to be performed. Remember that this needs to be a single point, and the cursor needs to stay there for a while. What’s more, the set doesn’t get updated as you move the cursor around, so you need to keep the main window active to be able to trigger copy with the keyboard.
On the other hand, you can write down coordinates yourself in target value fields, but it’s close to impossible to just figure them out. Once this is done, the action you want performed there needs to be selected. A drop-down menu is used in this regard, with actions for single and double click of the left or right mouse button.
In addition to the operation drop-down menu, there’s the possibility to keep the cursor in the original position when action is taken. A neat advantage is that you can trigger the action through configurable hotkeys. However, you can only set one action, which needs to be simple, and running more instances is not supported.
All things considered, we come to the conclusion that Mouse Click comes with a poor set of features for the task it wants to accomplish. Grabbing mouse coordinates can be a painful process, and when it’s done, you realize only one action can be configured, and no possibility to save history for later use.
