Stop holding down LMB for hours and let your computer do it for you! How to enable ClickLock feature in Windows and set a hotkey to toggle it while in-game using AHK!
Have you ever wished that hammering out vehicles in a garage, scrapping salvage for hours, or many of the things in Foxhole that wear out your left mouse button and associated finger could be alleviated? Well, there is a solution!
Windows has a built-in feature called ClickLock, found under the mouse settings. Just open up the Settings menu, nagivate to Devices > Mouse > Additional Mouse Options, and you will see the dialog box with the checkbox to toggle it.
Now you can hold down LMB for a couple seconds to trigger it! Your click will hold until you click again! Your finger will thank you!
This is great already as it is, but you will still have to tab out of the game every time you want to toggle it. There is a better way!
AutoHotkey is a scripting software that you can use to make your own hotkey to toggle ClickLock with.
Open your browser and navigate to AutoHotkey’s website – [autohotkey.com] , download, and install it!
Once done, you can then proceed to creating a script!
Creating an AHK Script
Open up Explorer and choose where you want to have your script be stored.
AHK will have added itself to your right-click context menu, so you can chooseNew > AutoHotkey Script. Name the file whatever you like!
Right click the file andEdit Script or open it in your preferred editor!
The contents are as simple as this!
~ScrollLock:: DllCall("SystemParametersInfo", "UInt", 0x101F, "UInt", 0, "UInt", toggle:=!toggle, "UInt", 0) ;SPI_SETMOUSECLICKLOCK Return
The first line sets the keybind that you want to toggle ClickLock, the second line creates the call to toggle it, and the third line returns the code to be ran!
In this example, I am using the Scroll Lock key to toggle ClickLock, but you can set it to anything you like! For documentation on how to choose your own hotkeys, see AHK’s website – [autohotkey.com] !
Double click to run it and you can now toggle ClickLock while in Foxhole!
Scheduling a Task
There is one more step you can take to make your life easier, and that is to make it so this script is ran every time you log in to your computer so you don’t have to manually launch it!
The best way to go about this is using Task Scheduler. There are a number of ways to open it, but one of the quickest is to open Run using Win + R and entering taskschd.msc.
Once open click Create Basic Task… on the right.
Name it whatever you wish and then proceed to the Trigger section. Here set it to When I log on, and then proceed. Under Action, leave it as Start a program.
Under program/script, enter “C:\Program Files\AutoHotkey\AutoHotkey.exe”, or wherever you have installed the AHK executable. Under the arguments section, add the location of your script! In my example, it is at C:\ClickLock.ahk.
Proceed and click Finish, and you are done!
