Increasingly, I find that applications respond to a single click as though I had double-clicked. I'm renaming over a hundred music files in Windows Explorer and, one click, delay, another click to rename becomes a double click on the first and the music plays in WMP. I tried to delete a sentence in this post by left button hold & drag to highlight but when I released the button, the highlight dissapeared. The mouse is a Logitec USB connection and, although only about a year old, it has hit the marble-tiled floor a few times. Does it look to be mouse-replacement time or is there some sort of setting I can change?
Try this, which applies in all versions of Windows...
Open Windows Explorer and from its menus select "Tools > Folder Options". In the General tab, there is an option for how items are clicked. Ensure that you have selected the option "Double click to open an item (single click to select)".
Gengis: I did find this (XP) but there is nothing about click speed Mgmcc: was already set Sea Urchin: I've had to do this for the rename job but it is longer Zurdo: That's what I was trying to avoid. Gordon Brown's efforts with the pension I paid in all my working life means I have to watch every penny, or, since I live in sunny Crete in euroland, every cent.
I'll bite the bullet and get a new mouse.
It's so good that so many people are kind enough to reply
