Windows – Map a Keyboard Key to the Same Action as Left Mouse Button

Issue

Is the a programmatic way (or something more simple) to map some keyboard key to the same action windows-wide as the left mouse button in Windows XP / Vista. If programmatic is there a way to do this in .NET 2.0 (or greater)?

Solution

There is a programmatic way, and it is possible in C# with a global hook. But I find tools like AutoHotkey, which were made for this sort of thing, are much quicker to get up and running. The scripts can also be compiled to executables.
