Default mouse click

HI this may sound as a strange question. Though i have a question about a mouse click. YOu know for laptops how you just click on a folder program or file once and it opens or does the action and on a computer you have to click twice for the action. Does any one know how to change the computer mouse click to just one click like a laptop. I have seen this done, I just odnt know how.


If someone could pleas help that would be appreciated

Heya, yes this is how you can change the double click to a single click.

1. Open up a window, for example the "My Computer" window.
2. Click on 'Tools' up the top then go down to 'Folder Options'
3. Under the 'General' tab, there is a section called "Click items as follows'
4. Then click "Single click to open an item ( Point to select )"

that should do it for you =)

Yeah, you can change that on any system - it works the same way for both laptops and desktops.

Do you know how to make the touchpad work when you tap it on a mac, not the button?
