    This morning when I turned on my PC and went to open my email, suddenly mails won't open with a double-click on the left mouse button as they always have done. I can open them by right clicking and clicking Open on the menu, but not just by double-clicking. I have turned the PC on and off, several times, I have checked the Control Panel, the Mouse setup options, made sure the 'double-click' box is ticked, I have checked the Tools Options menu in Outlook, I have moved the mouse port on the CPU and switched on and off, etc. I have even spent a couple of hours looking on helpsites... I am sure it must be a really really simple thing, but I am admitting defeat. Where do I find the answer to this one, please? Anyone...?

    Outlook Express still won't click-to-open this morning... (I hoped it might be OK after the night resting). I know it is probably something dead small and simple, but can no-one point me in the right direction, please???

    It appears that you've done all the right things so far but the question I have> When you go to the control panel & open the mouse icion can you open the little "test" folder with a double clik?

    As a work around, install Thunderbird and use that as your email client instead of OE.

    Thank you. I knew it was something that simple. But I didn't even realise that the little folder was a 'test' folder, heaven help me. Although I'd checked the click speed on the Mouse Control Panel I had left it a tad higher, it seems, than it should have been. I pushed it a fraction more back down, til the folder opens, and now the mouse seems fine. How it managed to reset itself between Sunday night and Monday morning will forever remain a mystery... I do appreciate the help, Ben.
