How to Enable or Disable ClickLock in Windows 10

Usually, you hold down the mouse button while highlighting or dragging items. If you don't want to hold down mouse button during these tasks, you need to enable "ClickLock" feature.

"ClickLock" lets you highlight or drag items without holding down the mouse button. Without any delay, let's see the steps to enable it.

Enable ClickLock in Windows 10

  • angle-double-right
    Open Run Command Box. Type "main.cpl" (without double quotes) and then press "Enter."
  • angle-double-right
    Now, you can see "Mouse Properties" in which you can see "Turn on ClickLock" option. Select it.
  • angle-double-right
    Now, you can see the enabled "Settings" button. Click on it. Set the duration as per your choice. Keep in mind that after this duration only the ClickLock will get activated. Hit "OK."​
Settings for ClickLock popup
  • angle-double-right
    ​Hit "OK" button in the "Mouse Properties" popup.
Selected Turn on ClickLock option

That is all. From now on, you can highlight or drag items without holding down the mouse button and here is how:

Go to the location where the items you want to highlight or drag are.

To highlight: hold down the mouse button for few seconds (OR for the duration you set) beside the items you want to highlight. Now, release the hold, and then highlight the items. Click the mouse button to finish highlighting.

Note that you can also use the above steps to highlight text.

To drag: hold down the mouse button for few seconds (OR for the duration you set) on the highlighted items. Now, release the hold, and then drag the items. Click the mouse button on the location you want, and it will drop the items there.

If you want to disable ClickLock, unselect "Turn on ClickLock" option and then hit "OK."
