Hi. You're watching VisiHow, and this is a tutorial on how to drag Windows and files without holding the mouse button on Windows 7 computers.
First we need to go to the Control Panel.
To go there, we need to press the Start menu button, in the lower left corner of the screen.
Now, click "Control Panel".
Once in the Control Panel, we are looking for "Hardware and Sound".
Click it, and we will be brought to a different section.
In this section, we are looking for "Mouse".
Click it, and a new window, with several tabs, will open.
In this window, we need the "Buttons" tab.
In this tab, we need to check "Turn on ClickLock".
Put a check mark in the box.
We can now click on "Settings".
From here, we can say how long we need to keep the mouse button held for it to lock. In our case, we are going for the shortest period available.
We will set the slider to the shortest one and then click "OK".
Click "OK" in this window as well.
The settings will take effect.
We can click and hold the window, and wait for about one second, then let it go.
Now, we will be able to drag the window. We can do the same with files on the desktop. To let it go, just click again.
This concludes our tutorial on how to drag Windows and files without holding the mouse button on Windows 7 computers.
