Sending finger press instead of mouse

12 Aug 2017, 12:13

Great app. Amazing.

I want to find out if sending click events to windows 10 is different between when the screen is clicked with a regular mouse versus with your finger. I notice that a different menu comes up for example when I right click in a folder to create a new subfolder versus holding my finger down. Also, I have a feeling that pressing with finger has a larger area of effect on the screen. Ie if something is 10 pixels from the mouse it might not get picked up by mouse click but will by finger push.

1) What is the technical name for "finger push" on screen? That's my first problem, I don't even know what to search for.
2) Does anyone know if the click event is done differently internally on windows 10 if a finger is used rather than a mouse?
3) Lastly, if so, does this magnificent program enable the sending of finger events versus a regular mouse click?

Thank you in anticipation.

I would think it just registers as a Lbutton or Rbutton depending on the gesture.

You may try looking at key history. have any script running, do your finger tap, then "open" the script (double click on the icon in the tray) and push control+k or find key history in the view menu.
