How to enable auto clicker on ChromeOS

In ChromeOS, you can turn on clicking only when you leave your mouse on a certain part of the screen

Just like the best Windows laptops, there are plenty of features available in ChromeOS to help make Chromebooks the best they can be for everyone. One of them, in particular, is the auto clicker. This allows your mouse pointer to automatically clip itself when it stops moving across the screen after a set amount of time. You have full control of this via the ChromeOS settings page. Here’s how you can help.

How to enable auto clicker on ChromeOS

If you leave your mouse alone for a predetermined amount of time, it will click on whatever is on the screen. This feature may be useful for those with disabilities, and like other similar settings, it’s available in the Accessibility menu in the ChromeOS app. You need to press the Alt + Shift + S keys together to open Quick Settings and then select the Settings cog. Once you open it, you can go down and turn on the feature.

  1. Select Accessibility.
  2. Select Cursor and touchpad.
  3. Select the automatic click option and make sure the switch is turned blue to On.

From here, you’ll see options to set the Pre-Click Delay, which is the amount of time before the click starts when your mouse stops moving. You can also check the Ignore subdirectory checkbox to avoid accidental clicks. Other than that, you can change the size of the cursor to make clicking easier, or select return left to have your mouse move back to the left after clicking.

You will now see a new list of cursors at the bottom of the screen. From here, you can move your mouse over the images to select different types of clicks. There is left click, right click, double click, click and drag, swipe, or menu button. Just point to where you want to take action and wait. Then, you can move the mouse back to where you want this to happen. There is also a scroll icon, which you can click on to get additional scroll options left, right, top, bottom, and close. At any time, you can pause and click the pause button.

When you’re ready to turn off click-only, simply turn it off. That’s all there is to the recording system on ChromeOS. We hope you found this guide useful, and remember, we have tips for other ChromeOS settings such as calculators, advanced features, and ChromeOS shortcuts.
