Is There a Way to Click a TaskBar Icon, Without Moving the Mouse to The Icon?

Recommended Posts


Right now, what I do is:

1) Find the Location of the Icon,

2) Calculate a Middle Point in it,

and then:


Is there a simple way of doing it, without moving the mouse there?

MouseClick() Moves the mouse, and then Clicks.

I want just the Click :)


I tried _GUICtrlToolbar_ClickButton() too, and it also moves the mouse..

I am looking for another way..

The same way that when you use ControlClick(), it doesn't move the mouse, it just clicks.

Thank you

All I do is use MouseGetPos to get the current postion of the mouse just before I call _GUICtrlToolbar_ClickButton and then use MouseMove afterwards. :)

Hi Melba23 :)

I was really hoping to avoid that workaround :)

Isn't there a way to do it without moving the mouse?

Maybe send a WindowsMessage or something?
