Windows 7: move desktop icons without opening them

Hi:

It's not really a "click" (slow or fast, single or double).
To drag-and-drop, it's a press-and-hold with the left mouse button.
Did you try the fix HERE?

In any event, it sounds as if your issue is resolved.

Thanks for taking the time to let us know.

Cheers,

MM
