    Disable Shift Click on taskbar

    Is there a way to disable opening of a new program when clicking on it int he taskbar while holding shift? I use shift for VOIP programs as a push to talk key while multitasking so this makes it annoying.

    Hello SevenUser09

    If you install AutoHotKey you can create a script with this code. This will disable shift clicking to open a new instance.

    +LButton::                      ;  Shift + LButton hotkey.
        MouseGetPos,,, win          ; Get window under mouse.
        ; If this window is the taskbar,  mode:="", otherwise mode:="{Blind}".
        mode :=  WinExist("ahk_class Shell_TrayWnd ahk_id " win) ? "" : "{Blind}"
         Send %mode%{LButton Down}   ; Click  down, filtering out Shift if mode="".
        KeyWait LButton              ; Wait for button to be  physically released.
        Send %mode%{LButton Up}     ; Click up.
    Hope this helps.
