    I hope this is a really easy one: yesterday the mouse stopped opening emails by double-clicking left button, & will only open with the menu on right-click. I thought it was only affecting OE, but have just discovered the mouse won't open other folders & docs on left-clicking. I have checked the Control Panel functions and everything else I can think of, changed the USB ports, etc etc, looked at MS & OEx help sites, and the driver is the right, current version. Please can anyone advise why it has suddenly changed like this and what I do to restore the click-to-open function?

    Have you tried using a different mouse to see if you can reproduce the problem ?
    or plugging the mouse in question into another machine and then checking ??

    please post back you findings !

    Thanks Athan, I'm told its the speed being a fraction too high. Had checked it, but not adjusted enough.
