Not sure what to title this. I'm looking for a registry modification that increases the amount of movement allowed before windows no longer registers a click as a click and instead is a click/move. IDK.
The problem I have is that when I click sometimes it isn't a click because I moved my mouse by one pixel.
I'm figuring that there is a setting that adjusts this tolerance. HELP.

Hi,

When this problem started happening?
Tried with different USB port?
Tried with different mouse?

Just to let you know I have been pondering this. There are software solutions that deal with this. I am thinking about the trackpad software used for laptops, there are desktop software programs as well. I would think that to accommodate ADA M/S must have some sort of settings available no matter how hidden. I know you already have tried this so I take it slowing down click response time in the mouse settings doesn't help. Let me keep thinking about this I have just been wicked busy at this time of year.

It seems like I used to know this but maybe it was something else. Couldn't find anything online about it. It may be that it just isn't a thing. But it should be. It has been a problem basically since windows 10 as far as I can remember. I do know that I never had a problem with it. It is mostly fine when I'm not being lazy, like using the computer from my bed half asleep, laying down. But even when alert and upright I sometimes find that I click and nothing happens. Then I click again and it goes. It seems like it must be because I slightly moved my mouse when I clicked so Windows thinks I'm not really clicking but click-dragging, which of course does nothing on an OK button, or any button/clicky.
So, I figure that there must be a sensitivity setting in the Registry. I can't find it in 'mouse settings'. There is a double click sensitivity, but not a single click sensitivity.
It could be related to click-drag sensitivity. So if you are motionless when clicking then it just sees a click, but if you are moving between pressing and unpressing the mouse button then it is a click drag. So how many pixels must you move before Windows thinks you are not clicking but click-dragging?
Anyway... maybe that helps. I'm stumped. But I'll try to look up click-drag in Registry myself. Frankly I find Registry to be ridiculous. Lol.
Thanks.

(also, I have a more sensitive mouse now so maybe that is part of it?)

I ran across something in effect to what you were asking today at work. It's not as simple as a single registry value or so this post had me believe. I'll look through my history Thursday and post a link if I can find it.

Does anybody else have the problem of clicking something and nothing happening? So you click again and it works. Goofy windows.
