Windows 7: Is quicker way to...?

Is quicker way to...?

How do i enable/disable Activate a window by hovering over it w/ the least amoust of
clicks? I use this feature quite a bit and it would be nice not to have to do all this everytime.......

Start\Programs\Ease of Access\Ease of Access Center\Make the Mouse Easier to Use.....
Then tick "Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse" and then click OK and then close the main window. thats allot of clicks.

Can all this be done in one step by clicking an icon or a keyboard combination?

I later figured out i can drag the little icon in the windows exporer address bar to the desktop...but that only gets me to the Ease of Access directory. Still allot of clicks...was just curious if this task could be done more efficiently.

It woud be nice to have two different keyboard combos to disable/enable the feature.
