Close window with mouse
« on: December 11, 2009, 01:11:50 PM »
Hallo,
one of the functions most used by me is "close window", Alt+F4.
To position the cursor with the mouse to the small X in the right corner takes time,
so I am looking for a faster way.
A great solution would be a click with both, left and right mouse buttons together.

I know there are mouse drivers to support that, but they need a lot of resident memory.
A small program may be the better way. What do you think?
Thanks
Jürgen

Give RockerClose try:  Download (source/binary included)

Make sure the app you want closed is the focused app and then do a "right-click hold then left click" action.  That type of action is called a rocker action.  It's just a simple hotkey so you can easily incorporate it into your main AutoHotkey script if you run one.  Here's the code:

Code: AutoIt [Select]
  1. #NoTrayIcon
  2. #NoEnv
  3. #SingleInstance, Force
  4. SetWorkingDir, %A_ScriptDir%
  5. DetectHiddenWindows, On
  6.  
  7. ~RButton & LButton Up::
  8. {
  9.     WinClose, A
  10. }

plutokang: You might want to try StrokeIt. One of the standard gestures that comes w/ it is drawing a C to close the current active window. You hold your right mouse button down and draw C anywhere on the active window and it gets closed.

Hallo sri, strokeit is also very good, uses in my system only 188 K Memory.
And can perform a lot of additional functions, thank you.
