Emulate mouse clicks with keyboard
« on: February 07, 2008, 04:17:22 PM »
Right now I'm using the MouseKeys accessibility option within Windows 2000. I'm looking for a program that is more configurable. I would like to use my right hand to move the mouse but the left hand to click by pressing buttons on the main part of the keyboard, not the number 5 on the numeric keypad way over on the right-hand side. Also, unlike MouseKeys, I'd like separate keys for left vs. right-click and not have to toggle the setting for one button. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

You could use MouseKeys in conjunction with remapping the keys it uses for left/right click to other keys, eg. Cntrl-A, ~, etc.

Try SharpKeys, (http://www.randyrant...7/sharpkeys_211.html), or KeyTweak, (http://webpages.charter.net/krumsick/).

Of course, this will completely screw up the default numpad mappings.

It looks as if a little bit of AutoHotkey scripting ought to do what you want. 
(Look up 'Click' and 'MouseClick' in the help file.)
