File and Folder options – to Click or Double Click, Use check boxes

Did you know you can change your computer set up and decide if you want to click or double click to open a file?

Click on Start then Control Panel

Choose Appearance and Personalization

Choose Folder Options – a new window will open.

There are all sorts of options in here – you can choose to single click or double click to open an item. If you click on the View tab,  there is a whole list of things you can change – for example you could “Use check boxes to select items” – this is a particularly useful one, because it makes it a lot easier to see what items you have selected, for instance when you are copying or moving photos around.
