It only happens occasionally, everything will be going well, then if you carry out two actions quickly (dont know what they are yet) thereafter, when you start to double click on a Icon shortcut, the first and subsequent click brings a Dropdown Box, with Open, Edit... on display.

To get rid of this, I usually restart the PC, which fixes the problem.

Im not sure Ive seen a tick box to de/select this option.

Hi John, that sounds like the context menu (when you right click on a file). perhaps your mouse click settings are too fast/slow. Open Control Panel - Mouse-Buttons tab and have a play with these speeds and see if they make a difference. It could even be a button sticking or perhaps the mouse drivers.

Perhaps try another mouse if you have the same problems.
