    I have a new computer with XP-Home and it opens programs and documents with
    a single click rather than a double click. I want to change this but don't
    know how. I did look at the mouse properties and options and the mouse
    installation options, but saw nothing there that would make the change.

    Help appreciated.

    To change the number of mouse clicks required to open items

    1.. Open Folder Options in Control Panel.
    a.. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
    b.. Double-click Folder Options.
    2.. On the General tab, under Click items as follows, click the option
    you want.
