Ok guys I have got a new question.
I would like to disable the left mouse button with a AHK script but only for the (left bottom) win 8.1 Start Button, and only if (within) the Microsoft App Reader (the MS app  that runs PDF documents full screen by default) is active.

A screenshot :

So it should still be possible to use the left mouse button within the Microsoft App Reader for the top right corner, so that I can close the reader.
After the Reader app has been closed the left mouse button should have no restrictions..

Just modify this script, it blocks the 100x100pixels of the bottom left corner of a maximized Notepad window.

Hi Skrommel thanks for your reply, but it doesn't work.. As mentioned I need it in win 8.1 with the standard Microsoft PDF viewer.
Also the untouched script doesn't work with notepad..
Do I do something wrong ?

Hehe, enthusiasm is contagious mouser!  :)

@ -Huub- this works when Reader app is fullscreen in Win 8.1
#IfWinActive, Reader
Lbutton::
CoordMode, Mouse, Screen
MouseGetPos, mx, my
if (A_ScreenHeight - my > 101 or mx > 101 )
 click
return
#IfWinActive
A drawback is that it breaks click and drag in Reader (multi word text selection). But you can still do ctrl+click and drag to select text.
