Problem with opening toolbar items and files in a search

Hi! Don't know what I might have changed, but rather than being able to left click to open items on the toolbar, I have to right click and choose it. Also, when I'm doing a search for files, when I want to open a file that happends to be a zipped file, I have to right click and select "open containing folder".

In the past, only had to left click normally to open anything I wanted.

Any ideas? Thanks

oriannar, Go into your Control Panel>Folder Options and under the General tab choose "Double Click to open an item" click Apply/OK.

oriannar, Go into your Control Panel>Mouse and open it. Change your Double Click speed to a higher speed and if you have the Click Lock option make sure that it's turned off.
