Open Documents, or any other folder.

Top left is ORGANIZE

About half way down is "Folder and search options"

About central in the box is "Single click to open....."

Control Panel - Folder Options - Single Click - Apply - OK

Thanks...However I cant get this to work in word? I still have to click twice to open a file.....

As a work around you could Right Click and the select Open. I know this is still two clicks but they are not speed dependant!
