There are many beneficial features and options on the Windows platform when left at their default state and one of the good things about the OS, Is that It allows users to configure and apply settings according to their overall usability. One particular setting that significantly speeds up the process when opening files, folders and drives, Is not having the need to double-click the Item In question. In this tutorial, I will show you how to open any file, folder or drive with a single click of the mouse.
At the time of writing, I'd say It's very safe to assume that the majority of Windows-based users are well aware of what I'm about to mention. However, If you've never come across nor heard of how to execute Items with a single mouse click, then this tutorial Is for you.
I will demonstrate how to not only apply the setting natively, but also provide you with a couple of batch files that allow you to enable & disable the single-click setting no matter where you're located within the Windows environment.
I have provided the download links to the batch files, at the end of this article. The process Is extremely simple, so without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.
Step One:Firstly, I'll apply the single-click setting natively via File Explorer. Upon navigating there, click on the View tab and then hit Options as shown below.
Step Two:Next, make sure the General tab Is selected and then click the radio button as outlined In orange. To finalize the process, simply hit OK.
Step Three:I've now opened This PC In File Explorer, and as you can see, every file, folder and drive Is underlined. This represents a single-click, thus each Item can be opened as such.
Step Four:As mentioned toward the beginning of this article, the same result can be achieved, by double-clicking the Single Click.bat file. File Explorer will quickly open & close and apply the single-click setting thereafter.
Last Step:To reverse the change and have the double-click setting applied as per It's default state, simply execute the Double Click.bat file.
Final Thoughts:Whilst It's very simple to apply the single-click In File Explorer, what about If you're located at your computer's desktop? Obviously, you cannot access File Explorer there, and that's when the batch files come to good use. You can even carry them on your USB stick, and use them on any computer you like.
