You can hide the current application or all other applications, and open any file or application. You can perform multiple actions with one click. Each screen corner can have many different actions based on modifier keys.

A popup window can show you what action will be performed when you point at the screen corner. If you point at the corner and use the scroll-wheel on your mouse, a menu listing all

Love it! CornerClick is what Apple's hot corners should have been. What I particularly liked is the ability to activate apps, and the ability to add modifier keys (I use these to prevent accidental activation if my cursor happens to drift into a corner).

Isn't this application just a free version of MaxMenus?
Not that I'm complaining...

maxmenus has much more options: e.g. menu of mounted volumes

Yes and no. For example, MM can't invoke Expose. I love MM but am also a fan of CC.

Could the developer please add an option for Spaces? This is the only thing that's lacking, and it would be really useful for those of us whose mice always jump to the corner and accidentally activate Spaces.

Excellent app!

Set up an action to open Spaces.app (in Applications/Utilities) and use a modifier key.

Very handy. Thanks. Using a corner to activate the screen saver to lock my screen seemed like a good idea in theory, but I couldn't use it until I had the option to click to activate it.

CornerClick is in my mind. I just use the left corner to hide the frontmost app, but this is soooo handy. And as somebody already said: I click in corners of other Macs thinking it's a default feature of OS X.

Thanks!

Could be great and useful, but it's as buggy as hell on my system. Some corners activate the wrong things, others won't accept the 2-second delay, etc. Frustrating.

Man... this sounded like exactly what I wanted, but it's not working as described. I tried to set up a menu of commands that would let me choose from the different Exposé options (show app windows, all windows, desktop), with a hover activation, but it doesn't work. I sometimes see the menu with a little arrow next to all the choices but one, and then they all spontaneously happen (cycling through the various Exposé options).
Anybody else see this? I see the developer isn't actively supporting this anymore.
Bummer. :(

FYI, I guess I never went back and updated this. I don't remember whether there was an update or what, but CornerClick continues to work to this day (on Snow Leopard). Haven't updated the computer I have CC on to Lion/ML/Mavericks

I am having a slight problem with Corner Click and am using OS 10.4.9 Tiger. My problem is that when I disable actions for the corners, the Corner Click arc remains in the corner. This is blocking my access to PopChar, which, if I could click on it, I could move its location and the problem would go away. Any suggestions from anyone.

CornerClick is great, but I'm having a problem with one corner. For some reason the upper right corner does not work. When I set it to some action, it will work the very first time I move the mouse into that corner, but subsequent moves into that corner do nothing (whether set to click, hover, etc.) This seems to happen when I have my external display attached (dual displays). I have the displays arranged such that my Powerbooks screen is on the left, and my external is on the right. The problem only happens with the upper right corner of the external (right) display. Anyone else seeing a similar problem?

I'm getting that too. I wonder if Spotlight's claim on that corner (to activate it's search field) is interfering?

Hi,
sorry, but the top-right corner is no longer usable since spotlight was added to mac os x 10.4!

one day i will try to fix that hopefully.
