    Windows Explorer View Option have changed

    I have 2 computers running Windows 10, my main computer is Version 1709 Build 16299.64, the one in my shop is Version 1703 Build 15063.726, the view option on both computers is:

    On the shop computer when I point at a file it highlights the file and lets me mouse over to one of the commands, Delete, Rename, etc. On the main computer when I point at a file in underlines it and when I mouse up to the commands the underline goes away.

    Did the new version of Windows 10 change the way it handles this?

    I don't know the answer to this as I always use double click but there is a tutorial on this and you should ask your question in the thread there:
