Click Lock is one of the main features of the “Mouse” in the Windows system. Whenever we drag a file to the desired folder, we simply drag it by holding down the mouse button. With the help of Click Lock, we can highlight or drag files without holding down the mouse button. To configure the click lock, briefly press the mouse button. To release it, click the mouse button again.
