Keyboard Mousebutton Replacement Utility (.NET)


This is a small Windows utility that emulates the left and right mousebuttons using the right Windows key and the right Alt key.

Why? Because I use a MacBook Pro running exclusively in PC-mode, and I can't stand how the mouseclick is implemented with its button-less trackpad. So yeah, pretty niche...

Sorry, no UI to change the hotkey assignments. If you're comfortable with C#.NET, the source code is included in the zip file. It may be useful to examine if you're interested in learning (1) how to capture keystrokes globally in Windows or (2) how to generate mouse operations programmatically, using some dreadful-looking Windows API interop code that I tried to learn as little as possible about in order to get to work.
