Windows 7: Mouse double clicks when i single click

Mouse double clicks when i single click

Hey all, I got this rather annoying problem lately. As title says, my mouse seems to double click when I just clicked once. You can notice that in browsers, when I click on an address in the suggestions, but the click "goes through" and clicks on a bookmark behind the drop down menu which vanished after first click.

Same goes for youtube, when I just want to pause a video, and single click, the video goes to fullscreen which happens only when you double click. Starts to be really annoying.

Same issue can be noticed in few other circumstances as well.. thou now that I think about it, I think it only occurs browser related.

I am using Mionix saiph 1800 mouse.

Could be the switch in the mouse is causing that. I just got rid of a Microsoft mouse for that exact problem.

Go into the Mouse configuration panel in the Control Panel and change the LEFT mouse click to the RIGHT click. Then try it with the right mouse button and see if you still get double clicks. If you don't that would confirm that the mouse is the problem.

Hello Cronnix,

You might see if adjusting the "Double-click speed" settings, in the Mouse icon in the Control Panel (icons view), up and down to see if one the settings may help. It may be set to be just to sensitive.

While I noticed minor improvement after changing double click speed, it still occurs. I guess I will have to try Fireberds suggestion, and replace the mouse if it is a case of hardware going bad.

i seem to remember a setting where hovering over an icon selected it, and one click opened it, but i cant remember what the setting was called. maybe reset everything to defaults before tossing the mouse?

Yes, as I mentioned above the issue mainly occurs in my Firefox browser. I guess I will try resetting all to default in it, since probably the problem lies with the browser and not mouse, unless anyone got any other ideas.

I've seen this on a wireless mouse with weak batteries. Not sure if yours is wireless or not.

If you have an extra mouse, try that (before having to buy one).
