import pyautogui

def click_with_retry(x, y, max_attempts=3):
attempts = 0
while attempts < max_attempts: try: pyautogui.click(x, y) break # Click successful, exit the loop except pyautogui.FailSafeException: print("Mouse cursor moved to the corner. Aborting click...") break # Exit the loop if the mouse moves to the corner except pyautogui.FailSafeException as e: print(f"Failed to click: {e}") attempts += 1 print(f"Retrying... ({attempts}/{max_attempts})") # Example usage: Click at coordinates (100, 200) with maximum 3 attempts click_with_retry(100, 200, 3)

The code above defines a function `click_with_retry()` that attempts to click at the provided coordinates `(x, y)` using PyAutoGUI's `click()` function. If the click fails due to a `FailSafeException`, which occurs when the mouse cursor moves to the top-left corner of the screen, the function will abort the click. Otherwise, it will retry the click for a maximum number of attempts specified by the `max_attempts` parameter.

This code snippet provides a basic foundation for handling click failures with retries. You can integrate this into a larger tool or application, customize it further based on your needs, and incorporate additional error handling or logging as required.

Consider Alternative Remote Access Solutions

If you are experiencing issues with TeamViewer mouse click not working, there are alternative remote access solutions that you can consider. These solutions can help you troubleshoot the problem and ensure smooth remote access.

One alternative is to use Windows Remote Desktop which allows you to access your computer remotely using the built-in Remote Desktop feature in Windows. To access it, go to the search bar in the Start menu and type "Remote Desktop" and select the Remote Desktop Connection app. Enter the computer's IP address or hostname and click "Connect".

Another option is AnyDesk, a popular remote desktop software that provides fast and secure remote access. Simply download and install AnyDesk on both the local and remote computers, then enter the remote computer's AnyDesk address to establish a connection.

For Mac users, the built-in Screen Sharing feature can be used to remotely access another Mac on the same network. To enable it, go to System Preferences, click on Sharing, and enable the Screen Sharing option. Then, use the Finder's Go menu to select the Connect to Server option and enter the other Mac's address.

These alternative remote access solutions can help you overcome the TeamViewer mouse click not working issue and ensure uninterrupted access to your remote computer.
