How to use a single-click to open a file or folder and run a program in Windows?

When you browse My Computer or My Documents, a single click lets you select a file or folder, but you have to double-click to open it. How to make it into a state of hyper link? Just like to browse the web pages, only single-click and open a file or folder, and run a program?

Well, if you'd rather single-click to open files and folders, you can change the setting on your mouse.

To change the settings on your mouse


Click Start, and then click My Computer.

Start menu with My Computer selected


Click Tools, and then click Folder Options.

Folder Options selected on Tools menu


Click Single-click to open an item. Then, click OK.

Now you can navigate folders and open files with a single rather than a double click. If you need to select a file, simply hold your mouse over the file for a few seconds without clicking.
