    Hi

    When I open a folder on my desktop it opens fine. But when I try it another way it wont work.

    What I mean is for example. I have a server and can ftp on to show the folders but cant open them. In M soft access I can view the tables but the only way to open them is to right click and choose "open". Its the same with nero if I want to burn files in folders I cant open the folders when using the add feature.

    I found out then that If I left click vigouously then they open but why would I have to do that all of a sudden?
    Cheers

    Hi

    I had a scout about and found my mouse double click was set to high.

    I altered it to around the middle and now everything works fine.

    Thanks for your reply

    Glad to know you got everything working properly; the fact that you could sometimes make it work with "vigorous" left-clicking made me suspicious of the mouse sensitivity, but I wanted to know if the problem remained when you changed the mouse...

    Good fix; got any plans for Guy Fawkes Day? I don't know if it is celebrated in Wales...

    We have been celebrating guy fawkes day for a bout 4 weeks its a bit of a nuisance really. Years ago it was Nov 5th and mebbe the odd bang before, but now its a nightmare and it usuually goes on for a few weeks after as well.

    Im not bothered but I feel sorry for the pets and the elderly.

    Cheers for the reply much appreciated
