Single-Click Access
Single-clicking to open items lets you work on your desktop and in your folders the same way you do in your browser. You can use single-clicking in two ways: with or without underlining icons and titles.

In any Explorer window (such as My Computer or Windows Explorer), click the View menu, and then click Folder Options.

On the General tab, click Custom, based on settings you choose, click Settings, and then click Single-click to open an item.

Choose the underlining style you want:

  • To see items underlined the way they are in your browser, click Underline icon titles consistent with my browser settings.
  • To underline items only when you point at them with the mouse, click Underline icon titles only when I point at them.
Notes: - If you change to single-click mode, some of the procedures in Internet Explorer Help will be incorrect; where the Help text reads "double-click," you will only have to click an icon once. - This tip assumes you have Active Desktop installed.
