- How to simplify using your mouse: change double-click to single-click - When you browse the Web with Microsoft Internet Explorer, links open with a single click. Yet, when you browse My Computer or My Documents, a single click lets you select a file or folder, but you have to double-click to open it. - If you had rather single-click to open files and folders, you can change the setting on your mouse (dont worry, this process does not require any double clicks).

- To change the settings on your mouse -

- Click Start, and then click My Computer.

- Click Tools, and then click Folder Options.

- Click Single-click to open an item. Then, click OK.

- -

- Now you can navigate folders and open files with a single rather than a double click. If you need to select a file, simply hold your mouse over the file for a few seconds without clicking.
