Buggy-Mouse.ahk — Fix a buggy mouse.

Stop it from double-clicking when you try to single-click.
Nope, it hasn't been updated in a while, but it still works fine!
Note: DO NOT paste Buggy-Mouse.ahk into ANY other script
OK, so there's been a whole lotta trouble with people not being able to get to this script. YouTube being a dumbass & all.

I wanna clear up a few things...
  • The correct URL for this script is... ...an acceptable alternative (& where the above redirects to) is... ...any other URL is WRONG & should not be used or encouraged.

    Note that I deliberately made the end of the URL be "Buggy-Mouse", not "Buggy-Mouse.ahk"...the ".ahk" on the end isn't incorrect (per se), but it takes you directly to the script, instead of to this info page. I only want incoming links to this info page.

    Now, this info page hasn't always existed, but I always planned on making it...& now I have.

    So, please ONLY link with those URLs —— & if you have already made a YouTube comment with the wrong URL, update it now! (note that YouTube will still munge it, but at least have the correct URL for YouTube to munge!)

  • You should NOT paste Buggy-Mouse.ahk into ANY other script. Some of the instructions on YouTube are wrong. Buggy-Mouse.ahk should always be "Saved" aka "Downloaded" & remain intact, no copy/pasting around. Specifically, do NOT: run AutoHotkey, say Yes to creating a script & then paste Buggy-Mouse.ahk into that script. NO NO NO. Follow the instructions that I've just created on this page to get Buggy-Mouse.ahk
How to use Buggy-Mouse.ahk...
  1. Make sure AutoHotkey is installed (main AutoHotkey download page) — or skip all these steps & Download the compiled Buggy-Mouse.exe!
  2. Click the Download Script link above (or here, that works too!)
  3. On some browsers the file may automatically start downloading to a random folder (the "Downloads" folder), I find this highly irritating, so I configure my browser to ASK me where I wanna save files, you should too.

    Anyway, if your browser is PROPERLY configured to ASK you where you wanna save files, continue...

    1. If you get a question like: "What should <the-browser> do with this file?", then make sure Save File is selected & click OK
    2. In the Save dialog ("Enter name of file to save to..."), Browse for somewhere to save the file...for example...

      C:\Save\AutoHotkey\Buggy-Mouse

    3. Make sure the filename is still
      Buggy-Mouse.ahk
    4. Click Save

  4. Minimize this browser window & Find the file you downloaded
  5. Double-click the Buggy-Mouse.ahk file to run it!
...now Buggy Mouse is running. What next? Nothing. It's running. Use your mouse like normal & enjoy no extra double-clicking! There is an icon in the systray, if you wanna poke around (not much to do in it tho)

Wait! It's not running or I got an error msg!
    If you got an error msg when you double-clicked Buggy-Mouse.ahk, then you need to make sure you installed AutoHotkey (& allowed it to associate with .ahk files). If you have & that's not the problem, then I don't know what to tell you, cuz unfortunately, I don't have a Feedback Form yet, so I can't ask you to tell me the error msg.

    So, in this case, your only option is to download the already-compiled version, Buggy-Mouse.exe or perhaps ask in the AutoHotkey Support Forum (I, JSLover, am not active on that support forum yet).
