I am running Windows 7 and cannot figure out how to change to single click. My mouse will appreciate it, as well as myself.

Hello Anna, and thanks for the great question. You and your mouse will be glad to know that it is very simple to change to single click.

Click the Start button in the lower left corner and then click Control Panel. The Control Panel window opens on your screen.

Click the View By Category option in the upper right corner and select Small Icons. Click Folder Options from the list of icons displayed on your screen.

Select Single-click to open an item (point to select) from the Click Items as Follows Section. Click the Apply button to save your changes, and then click OK to close the window.

Click the X in the upper right-hand corner to close the Control Panel window. Your mouse should now be set to single-click.

We hope this tip has been helpful for you!
