I open new links in Chrome with middle clicks. But lately I've been noticed the links opening twice or more tabs when I do a middle click. This might be me inadvertently clicking twice when I intend to middle click once.

How do I make it so once I click middle click, Windows ignores any other middle click in the next 500ms (with AutoHotkey)?

Thank you


I think you can do something like this:

    If (A_TimeSincePriorHotkey > 500)
        Send {MButton}

Where 500 is the number of milliseconds to wait.

  • Yours works great :) I found a similar but a line longer solution for it from ahk forums old posts. this is what i used. code Fix the middle-click-opening-multiple-tabs-with-one-mid-click-issue MButton:: if (A_TimeSincePriorHotkey < 150) ;hyperclick disallow it return Send {MButton} return – Abbas Khan Aug 14 '13 at 9:28
