i've got used to single-clicking on shortcuts within startmenu and taskbar, but like to keep double-click when dealing with files.
i've got a highly sensitive gaming mouse, and have to turn it down when working on the desktop.

LButtonDown, then, LButtonUP, for the Single
click. (Unless selected otherwise by the Lefty)
Dunno about MS Windows,
but having programmed for unix X_stuff, I think
one must "request" an operator's mouse_actions,
(Scaled IAW Screen_Coord_Mapping), etc.
Don't remember anything about Single_Click
but I think
that your s/w must have tracked the Dn_button, if and when it sees an Up_button,
to determine that a "Single-click" was fully accomplished.
Your s/w has to do 'whatever', depending upon:
What your sw has requested
(sort-of: 'registered-for'), and then your
when it gets control from the (Driver/OS/src) because of Bruno the operator's actions, etc.
I think they call this stuff "Callback", or something. Roughly...
So, if one chooses, the sytem can be shut-down (or whatever), on the first
mouse L_Button_Down. (Or 23rd/95th, if you keep a counter)
Can't imagine MS Windows APIs being too much more "innovative"...
Certainly, Developers and Programmers can comment here.
