I'm helping a friend with her first computer. The software was in it when she bought it. It's windows xp. The icons on the desktop and the control panel do not open with a left click (she is on one click) you have to right click on them and then open them. What can I do to change this? If it's already in here you will have to point me to it. Thank you.
If a program does not launch ( or indeed a folder not open with double left click ) then go to control panel and have a look at Folder options. You will find an option there to launch an item with either a single or double click.
