Win 98 problem

  wysiwyg8 16:28 17 Sep 04

A neighbour has an old PC running Win 98 and has been asking me to help with file management, his problem stems from the fact that files highlight on hover and open with a single left click. When he tries to drag and drop to organise folders the files open up on him. I have been to mouse properties in Control Panel but the setting is open on double click so where do we go from there?

I think you also need to do the same thing in Explorer -- in my version it's in Tools>Folder Options>General -- where there's an option to single-click or double-click to open a document.

as stlucia says, but i think on win98, its under the view tab/folder options

Not to complete the click.

If he keeps his finger on the left button then can drag.

Problem resolved but not by the suggestions,there was no option in either tools or view, but I re-set view folders from web to classic and that did it. I have no idea why it worked. Thanks anyway
