Single Click Mouse Operation

My mmouse is opening things with a single click, is something I have done or is the mouse poorly?

That can be changed in Mouse Settings in control panel.
But don't ask Me why it changed itself!

I have mine set to work on a Single click on purpose. Settings can be changed in Control Panel>Mouse.

Try c/p-- appearance and themes--folder options--general tab, make sure 'double click to open an item' button is on.

This is the only way I can see to change your mouse to open a programme with either single or double click. Thanks!

For the life of me I dont know why its part of folder options and not mouse properties.

Oh, it works in Vista too, in case anyone is wondering.
