I am always looking for ways to do things faster and one of those things is to shut down the computer faster, or log off a particular XP user account. It gets a little irritating having to always go through the start menu so I started experimenting with desktop shortcuts to streamline the process. Now I am trying out a feature which you can use using the right-click button on your mouse. It’s called Clickzap.
Upon installation, you’ll be asked what feature you want your right-click button to do (you can only choose one at a time). So if you log in and out of user accounts a lot, you might decide to choose that one. Or if you have to mute all PC sounds on a regular basis, you might decide that is the best use of Clickzap. Everything is easily configurable so you can change the settings later if you want to. There are 8 tasks you can choose from:
- lock computer
- minimize active window
- minimize all windows
- close active window
- close all windows
- mute sound
When everything has been set up and configured, all you have to then do is double-click the right-click button on your mouse and the required action will be carried out (on some pages, you may have to click three times if a double right-click has been disabled by the website in question).
