Windows 7: Windows Explorer mouse double-click is click-jump-click

Windows Explorer mouse double-click is click-jump-click

When I double-click a folder in Windows Explorer the effects I get are:
  • The focus is set to the Explorer window's folder and file list.
  • Page-down or something similar positions some file under the cursor
  • The file receives the second click of my double-click.
  • The default application for the fle type lauches.
This is a very frustrating change in behavior since typically that application is AutoCAD and opening a file is a significant time investment (okay 10 to 30 seconds but still time).

I've noticed in other threads that single-click is the new default method to open or execute files. I think I can learn to get along with that but when double-clicking a folder does not open it but rather initiates the sequence described, I think that's a problem.

If someone could describe how Windows Explorer folder navigation is supposed to happen in Windows 7, I would appreciate that.
