Simulate action

This item was added in October 2023.

When OFF, it is an actual click.
When ON, it is a virtual click.

When ON, it becomes the following state.

  • The only type of click is left click.
  • Clicking does not go to the foreground.
  • Windows that are minimized are not clickable.

Since it is more limited than OFF and has extremely few applicable UI items, it is likely to be used with OFF.

Click type

Select which click to perform.

  • Left click
  • Right click
  • Double click
  • Left button down
  • Left button up
  • Right button down
  • Right button up
  • Middle click

In most cases, the click is used alone, while the press and release install two actions.

If "Simulate action" is OFF, it can be set.

Advanced(Click Position Adjustment)

Adjust the click position using relative position and offset as needed.

Basically, the initial state is fine,

If it is not clickable, adjust it by changing the value and testing.

Relative position specifies where to click within the red frame.

Center means to click at the center of the red frame, and Left means to click at the left edge of the red frame.

Offset is a fine adjustment in pixels from that position.

If "Simulate action" is OFF, it can be set.
