be able to double click on the file/folder
My Win7, Win8. and WinVista by default allow double-clicking a Folder or file in Windows Explorer [renamed to File Explorer on Win8/8.1] but that is changeable in Control Panel, Folder Options to be a single-click.

Single click was suggested by Brink in earlier post. The point is to force Win 7 to behave like XP with double click. I posted videos of how it is and how I want it to be.

Sadly I suspect it isn't a bug but most likely a 'design feature'. I guess it is an attempt by MS to show the entire filename (or as much as it can) when you click on it. Not sure how that behaved in XP but I agree that it would be nice if, in the code, they waited for the double click period to expire before moving things around. Wouldn't be hard. Anybody in MS code development watch these forums?

OK. Just want everyone to know that this annoying issue is fixed. I asked one of my friends to take a look at this thread and see if he knows how to fix this. He suggested to download Ultimate Windows Tweaker and disable full row select.

Look at it now
