    A few weeks ago, doubleclicking the left mouse button no works. The only way I am able to open a program is to right-click the icon and select open. I have tried finding solutions at Microsoft's mouse support page but have had no luck. I have also downloaded their newest mouse driver and that hasn't helped either. Don't know where to turn to next. Probably simple solution....I just don't know it.

    Thanks for any help that comes.

    Have you gone to start/settings/control panel/mouse and reset the options for your mouse including the double click speed.

    A lot of people will set the speed too high and experience the problem your having.
