Windows 7: Windows 7 - Only allow single click!

Windows 7 - Only allow single click!

Hi All, I have several Windows 7 Pro desktops in an 2003 Active Directory environment. I am also experiencing this exact problem with all the Win 7 desktop. We do have GPO set and all of our XP boxes works fine with the settings applied.

The issue here for me, although the "double-click" option is set in the folder option, domain users are still forced to single click to open, launch files and folders. This is annoying to some users since they sometimes click into a folder/drive to start a search and when doing this on Win 7, would actually go into a sub folder that was not intended to. Since the "single-click" option is greyed out, the settings cannot be changed.

This post talks about settings the "Classic Shell" to "Not configured"... I have looked at the local machine policy and the OU GPO and both are set as "Not Configured".

Just need to find out if anyone else have gone through this issue and if the have resolved.

Thanks id advance...
