Mouse click not working right

You normally left click to access something on the internet but all of the sudden my computer won't do that. I have to right click then go up to click on OPEN and then it works. Using windows 7 pro and this just started over the weekend. How do I get it back to left click to open?
THANKS, JIM

Go into your Control Panel and open "Mouse". You can make either the left or right button open windows.

I got the impression the OP had to right click and select Open from the context menu. The browser in use isn't mentioned. If it was just button swap Right Click on a link should open right away.

You could do a System Restore to a date before you had the problem. That should take care of it.
