Single click to double?

Well, XP Pro was put back on my laptop, and it has switched over so that just about everything is single click instead of double click on the desktop, in file folders, etc. How can I go about switching everything back to double click?

Ah, never mind, I found it. Had to go to folder options, while I was farting around in the control panel.

glad you found it...

for anyone else - open My Computer - then, Tools, Folder Options, and it's right on the first tab, General...

Why is two clicks better than one? I would have thought one click would make it so much easier.

Not for me. Sometimes you want to select something, and sometimes you want to execute it. It sux when you want to move several files, click the first one, then your office app opens up while you wait. Very annoying.

Hit the nail on the head there. I've grown so accustomed to double clicking, that I can actually have a hard time navigating otherwise.

agreed..... single clicking can really be a pain if you just want to select a file... especially if you're used to double clicking to launch a file.
