How to automate mouse clicks on Windows 10

Automation allows users to skip redundant tasks and have them run without human intervention. It’s a great way to increase how much work gets done in a certain period of time.

There are all sorts of ways to automate work on Windows 10. Scripts and scheduled tasks are one of the more common methods that are used but you can also use automation software that can record a sequence of clicks and execute them for you.

Automate mouse clicks

You can use an app to automate mouse clicks. The app will first have you record the steps you want to execute e.g., you want to open the Settings app on Windows 10, and check for updates. You will first record the clicks that it takes to check for updates.

Once the sequence has been recorded, you can run it any time, and as many times as you want. The mouse clicks will be executed in the order you executed them in. If you’re looking for a tool that can automate mouse clicks, check these out.

1. GS Auto Clicker

GS Auto Clicker is a popular tool for automating mouse clicks. It is simple to use and have a simply UI to match. 

When recording a sequence of clicks, you can select which mouse button (right or left) should be clicked with, and you can program intervals i.e., time that must pass between clicks. This is useful if the action you’re executing takes time to complete.

For example, if you’re automating opening an app and clicking a specific button once the app is open, add a delay between the two clicks if the app takes a long time to open.

2. Auto Mouse Click

Auto Mouse Click is another great tool for automating mouse clicks. It’s more programmable than GS Auto Clicker but that also means it’s a little more complicated to use. 

You can view a log of every action you record, move a step up or down, remove it without having to record the entire sequence again, and use screen coordinates to define where a click should be executed.

3. Mouse Controller

Mouse Controller is a balance between a basic and an advanced mouse click automation tool. You can use it to record mouse clicks, and replay them. It does not offer a log or a list of the clicks that have been recorded but users have the option to program delays between clicks, and the tool can be set to repeat a sequence any number of times.

Conclusion

Auto mouse click apps are useful for redundant work but you should always test the sequence out a few times before you decide to rely on it. These tools will click the area of the screen they’ve been programmed to click. If an app window or a prompt appears that blocks them from clicking a button, the click will still be executed by the app. The end result is that while the clicks have executed, the desired action will not happen.
