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.

Now there is a quick way to lock/unlock buttons. Just right-click the icon, go to Locks and select the function you want to lock/unlock.

When I am browsing the web or watching a movie, I usually lock the keyboard. Once done, I can unlock it within seconds. During setup, you can also choose this tool to run during startup. It is the fastest lock/unlock tool I have come across which doesn’t take much system resources to run. Enjoy!
