Change Mouse pointer

How do u change the arrow to a hand on a mouse. My parents have got in to computing at a late age and find it very difficult to double-click on everything. I thought it would be easier to hover the hand over everything and click once. How do I change this setting? (XP Pro).

To change to a single click, My Computer, Tools> Folder Options, General tab, tick Single click...

Thanks Jackcoms but I need a little more than that. I selected the hand but it doesn't seem to work.

Thats it VoG thanks.

What about within applications like e-mail etc?

How do you mean "it doesn't seem to work" ??

You will need a mouse with programmable buttons, such as click here

You can set the large thumb button to double click. Be aware, you may not get a driver with the mouse (I didn't with ny last one) but they are readily downloadable.
