I supposed I should have worded it, whatever it happens to be set at. Meaning you wouldn't bother to change it if you sat down to a public machine etc..

That may help offset the bias generated by the topic title.

Sorry MilesAhead, I accidentally corrected the poll options (damb this single click setup )

Hopefully that sets the options that you wanted

Oh, now I see what you mean. Thanks. I was trying to do that myself but I guess the board software doesn't allow it.

edit: btw this makes me think of those "world is divided" sayings. Like, "the world is divided into 2 kinds of Windows users. Those who double-click to launch, and those who don't." Or something like that.

(When I mentioned the bias I meant the topic title "single click freaks" as that would tend to attract single clickers. I've joined the ranks of the one click ponies so I might as well promote it. )

edit2: the negative side-effect, as some double-clickers mentioned, is sometimes you inadvertently launch something. But I've noticed a positive side-effect. Sometimes double clicks weren't being picked up as they should. But with the hot tracking, it's very seldom that a single click to launch is dropped. It seems less error prone once you adjust to it.
