Hello!

 

I just got upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 at work. On Windows 7 I had my mouse set up to single click to open folders and files. I can't seem to find that option in the Windows 10 settings. I'd appreciate a point in the right direction!

 

Blessings!

Hi,
you can do it by searching for Control Panel in the Windows search, then go to the
Appearance and Personalization and File explorer options. from there on the first tab "General", you can see the setting that you're looking for.
