    Is there a desktop shortcut for Click-Lock?

    Hi everyone,

    I use ClickLock on my Thinkpad T440s laptop using the very capable track pad. However when I am at home I plug my laptop into an external monitor and use it with a mouse. The mouse of course does not require ClickLock, and in fact ClickLock with the mouse gets in the way.

    To get around this I've put a shortcut on the desktop which opens the Mouse Control Panel window, I then have to click on the Buttons tab, and click in the check-box to either activate it, or de-activate it. So whenever I work at my home desk I have to click through to de-activate it, and when I am working out and about, I have to activate it again.

    Would anyone be able to help me with a shortcut which would simply toggle Click-Lock on and off?

    Many thanks in advance!

    P.S. I asked this question a couple of days ago under 'How to Turn On or Off Mouse ClickLock in Windows' in the tutorial section. As it was probably in the wrong section I am repeating it here. Apologies, Mods please feel free to delete my original entry:

    Hi, I have that laptop.
    Just checked for a reg change related to that and could not identify one (using Regshot).

    There seems no way to disable the touchpad when the mouse is connected (that applies only for 'precision' touchpads. I don't know if that would help though.

    You might consider using a macro or an Autohotkey script, but I doubt that would be so easy or convenient.

    Perhaps the key is to find where the click-lock setting is stored.

    Thanks @dalchina,

    I'll attempt to find where the ClickLock setting is stored. Cheers, Chig.
