Can anyone recommend a program to stop me clicking the mouse accidentally? I have a bad hand-tremor. What I would like is to be able to confirm a selection or click with a keyboard short-cut. Many thanks.

I haven't used this program so can't recommend it or otherwise. Worth a look though.

Yes, I downloaded this, but can't make out how it works. Perhaps I was too impatient! I'll have another go and report back.

On an Apple Mac PC you click on the apple (menu bar, top left) and select System Preferences. Select "Accessibility". Here you will find various options.

Many thanks all. I am reading through click here - an excellent site. Single-clicking (organised through folder>optiions in windows explorer) and slowing the mouse trail is helping a lot.

Help! I have lost my right-click options along the line. Any ideas on how to get it back?

Many thanks, Jock1e. I have just found a box in Steady Mouse relating to 'Ignore Right Click' which I shouldn't have ticked!
