Double-clicking is the standard method for opening a desktop icon in Windows. It is intended to prevent "unintentional opening". However, some people want to access files and apps with one click instead. If you are there, you can change this setting as follows.
Enabling the one-click function in Windows 1
To change the default setting for opening files and folders from double-click to one click, go to the start menu. Search for & # 39; Explorer & # 39; and click on it when it appears or press Enter.
In the window, go to View> Options> Change folder and search options.
In the pop-up window, select the radio button "Click once to open an item (Select point)".
After selecting this option, icons are underlined (such as a hyperlink) when you hover over them. If you want the icon titles to always be underlined, select the "Underline icon titles consistent with my browser" radio button.
Now that you have enabled this setting, if you ever want to select an icon without opening it, move your mouse over it.
You can also ask Windows to display a check box for each item that you can use to select it. To enable this option, click the "View" tab in the "Folder Options" pop-up window and scroll down to "Advanced Settings". Select the check box next to & # 39; Use check boxes to select items & # 39; and then click & # 39; OK & # 39 ;.
These options should increase your efficiency and give you more flexibility with your Windows 10 device.
