how about putting the mouse cursor for example over the recycle bin icon on the desktop and clicking the left button on the mouse 2 times as fast as you can.

does this make any difference ?????

do as jessie .x..x.x says to do

you have to "double click" the short cut rather than single click it

rebooting the pc, trying another mouse, left clicking an icon to highlight it - does it work, is your left button working at all? Can you click and drag icons on your desktop? Can you go into windows explorer and double click on anything there (programme exe) and open it from there? J

Double click to open: ... Unless you set the folder Options to 'Open on single Click'
