How To Lock/Unlock Keyboard Keys Or Mouse Buttons Easily

What’s the point of locking keyboard keys or mouse buttons? It’s the first question that comes to mind. If you are using a wheel mouse like me, you will know that there is a middle button. I have pressed this button thousand of times by mistake while scrolling down webpages, so I need to disable it in some way. Kid-Key-Lock is a simple free program that lets you lock keyboard and mouse functions easily.

Once you run this tool, it will sit silently on the system tray. Double-click this program icon and a Setup window will open.
