    How to make mouse a one click using windows 10


    Hi, I new to windows 10 & was a previous user of W-7 & before I was able to make my mouse only use 1 click instead of 2 clicks to open up files & etc. I've searched this forum & haven't found anything on this, so I hope someone will have the answer. I hate double clicking a file or program to open, much faster one clicking!

    Thanks in advance for any help on this...

    Same as in W7 and Vista and XP.

    No, it's same since XP, there is also same path to it. Control Panel > File explorer options (formerly File and folder options).
