Quick Tip: ClickLock

One feature I just learned that Windows has a feature called ClickLock. I'm sure those who have used a computer for awhile are aware of drag'n'drop method of moving files and folders around your computer. You left click and hold on said file or folder and move it around to where you want it. This may be a bit tough for those with laptop with no mouse. With ClickLock you click on the item for a few seconds(you can adjust the time) and it will lock on to it and then you can move it to where you want it.

Heres how to set this up:

1. Click on your Start button->Go to Control Panel -> Printers and Other Hardware -> Mouse

2. Select the Buttons tab, select Turn on ClickLock

3. Click on Settings button to adjust how long to hold button to lock item. Click OK to finish.

4. At the Mouse Properties window click Apply and your done.

I thought this was a nice feature I especially for those operating without a mouse, like a laptop. Have a great day!
