Are you tired of clicking? GentleMouse - No More Clicking!

GentleMouse is a revolutionary, patent-pending, ergonomic software solution that eliminates the need to click the mouse. By eliminating or reducing daily, painful repetitive clicking, GentleMouse may significantly reduce the risk of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). And if you are already injured, GentleMouse is a gentler way to begin using the mouse again.

When you pause the mouse cursor to click, GentleMouse briefly displays a small, see-through window called a Trigger Window. To click, you simply move and pause the cursor over the Trigger Window and GentleMouse simulates a click for you! Each mouse action—click, double-click, right-click, drag, scroll, and more—has its own Trigger Window so you can perform any mouse action without clicking. It’s that easy. No clicking. No strain. No pain.
Requires Windows 2000/XP.

It is key to understand that smoking is both a habit and an addiction. Many times you tell yourself that you want to have a cigarette and the smoking you do is just out of habit. Habits are affected by your environment and triggers related to that environment. Something you see or do on a daily basis (a trigger) initiates the habits. Triggers are the gentle yet persistent stimuli of smoking. Just like tobacco cigarettes the popular electronic cigarette allows you to fulfill those habits. However, electronic cigarettes do not contain tobacco or tar. For this reason, many smokers are switching to the best electronic cigarettes brands instead of traditional cigarettes. Find out which products other smokers like best by reading this e-cigarette review site. Many Smoketip reviews show that it is a great brand. Better yet, quit cold turkey.
Whenever you stop moving the mouse cursor, GentleMouse records the location where you stopped and briefly displays a Trigger Window. If you want to click at the location where you stopped, all you have to do is move and pause over the Trigger Window. Upon pausing over the Trigger Window, GentleMouse will move the cursor back to the original location where you stopped and then simulate the mouse action assigned to that Trigger Window.

No. You can click manually or by using GentleMouse–it’s completely up to you. You can ignore the Trigger Window while you continue to click manually.
Back to top
No. GentleMouse is the first clickless mouse software that does not use the technology known as “dwell clicking.” With dwell clicking, the software is programmed to perform a”click” whenever you pause the mouse. The drawback of dwell clicking is that it can cause the mouse to click when you don’t mean to, just because you happened to pause briefly. GentleMouse eliminates the problem of dwell clicking through Trigger Windows since you first need to move and pause over a Trigger Window in order to trigger a mouse action. In other words, GentleMouse only clicks when you choose to click.

GentleMouse is the first clickless mouse software that does not use the technology known as “dwell clicking.” With dwell clicking, the software is programmed to perform a”click” whenever you pause the mouse. The drawback of dwell clicking is that it can cause the mouse to click when you don’t mean to, just because you happened to pause briefly. GentleMouse eliminates the problem of dwell clicking through Trigger Windows since you need to first move over a Trigger Window in order to trigger an action. In other words, GentleMouse only clicks when you choose to click.

In addition, with dwell clicking you can only perform one type of mouse action at a time. The way it works is you need to first choose the setting for the type of mouse action you want to perform. From that point on, whenever you pause the mouse, the software will only perform that action, until you change the setting again. For example, if you have the dwell clicking software set to perform a “left-click,” every time you pause the mouse the software will perform a left-click. If you want to right-click, or double-click, you must first change the program setting. This requires an extra step and interrupts your natural mouse movements.

With GentleMouse, because you can trigger any mouse action with just a slight hand movement over the corresponding Trigger Window, you can easily change from right to left clicking, which will feel more natural to you.

Yes. You can use GentleMouse in any Windows application. Wherever you can use a standard computer mouse, you can use GentleMouse.
Back to top
No. GentleMouse is adaptable to the way you naturally move and click the mouse, and you can adjust GentleMouse's timers to be as fast or as slow as you like. In addition, when GentleMouse is running you can still click manually. You can either ignore the Trigger Window while you continue to manually click. Or, if you find the Trigger Window distracting, you can always pause GentleMouse and then turn it back on when you want to have the option not to click.

GentleMouse is revolutionary because it is a fundamental change to the way we interact with the computer. The problem with computer input devices of today—namely the mouse and the keyboard—is that they require too much repetitive hand and wrist movement, such as clicking. Repetitive clicking of the mouse is increasingly causing computer-related injuries such as Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). GentleMouse, which introduces Trigger Windows as a substitute for manual mouse clicks, offers a true breakthrough in computer input devices.

GentleMouse can help if you are:
    *    Currently suffering from RSI, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or other conditions that prevents you from being able to click or press the mouse—GentleMouse allows you to use the mouse again without needing to click.
    *    Suffering from arthritis and have difficulty clicking or pressing the mouse, or are unable to click the mouse at all—with GentleMouse, you can use the computer without having to hurt your hands by clicking the mouse.
    *    Beginning to feel the symptoms of RSI, such as numbness, aches or discomfort in your hand or arm—GentleMouse will help alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with clicking and may prevent any further damage to your hands.
    *    Not yet experiencing any pain, but frequently on the computer—using GentleMouse may help you remain pain-free and prevent damage to your hand and arm from repetitive mouse clicking.

It will take a few seconds for you to adjust to the concept of “moving” over a Trigger Window instead of manually clicking the mouse, but in no time it will become second nature. Also, since GentleMouse doesn’t interfere with your ability to manually click the mouse, you can easily switch back and forth between manual clicking and GentleMouse. As you become more and more comfortable using the Trigger Windows, you can do less manual clicking, reducing the strain on your hand.

Trigger Windows are the tools that GentleMouse uses to translate mouse movements into mouse actions. Each mouse action: left-click, right-click, double-click, drag, scroll and more, is represented by a distinct Trigger Window that is positioned in a small area next to the cursor. There is one main Trigger Window that appears whenever you move and pause the mouse and the other Trigger Windows become visible only when you pass through the main Trigger Window.
Back to top
In the default setting each Trigger Window is slightly larger than the mouse cursor, but you can adjust the size to be smaller or larger as you prefer.
Back to top
The main Trigger Window appears every time you move and pause the mouse to give you the option to perform a click or any other mouse action. The Trigger Window disappears when you perform an action or if the mouse cursor is idle for a predefined time span.
Back to top
No. All you need to do to perform the various mouse actions is move your hand toward the trigger window corresponding to the mouse action you want to perform. This is one of the ways GentleMouse differs from all other clickless mouse software today which are based on dwell clicking.
