How to drag click

Before attempting to drag click, make sure you clean your mouse. As you keep using the device, dust and grime tends to accumulate on the buttons. It's best if you clean the surface of the mouse with some rubbing alcohol and a microfiber cloth. Once you've cleaned the mouse, grip your mouse with your hand as you normally would. Place the index finger on the base of the left mouse button, but don't apply too much pressure. Now, slowly start moving your index finger to the top with a little pressure and bring it back to the base. Keep repeating this process.

If you've done it correctly, every time you push your index finger upwards, you should hear multiple clicking sounds. You can also check out tools like Click Speed Test to see how many clicks you're registering per second. And it's okay if you don't get it right in the first couple of tries. This technique takes a lot of practice and time to master.

What are the benefits of drag clicking?

If done correctly, drag clicking has a lot of benefits. For a game like Minecraft, you can lay down more blocks in a short amount of time. For FPS games, you can set your weapons to a single shot (if the game permits it) , and then fire multiple rounds per second while maintaining good recoil control. Once again, proper drag clicking requires a lot of practice. So don't lose heart if you can't do it in the first couple of times. Keep practicing, and good luck!
