    Your double click is too slow.

    To run an application or open a file or folder from its shortcut, you double click it. Clicking an shortcut twice slowly selects the name of it letting you to rename shortcut. See the short video below:

    Count, that has (should have) nothing to do with the issue. I have for instance always check boxes selected, as can also be seen in the short video in my previous post presenting the difference between a double click and two consecutive clicks.
