Mouse double clicks when I click once and click when I hold it.

Q: Mouse double clicks when I click once and click when I hold it.

What I mean is that let's say I am trying to hold and drag a desktop file it will sometimes just click, making me drop the file on the spot. It will also double click when I try to make a single click. I tried to lower the settings for double click timing on the settings menu.

EDIT: Tried out another mouse, it doesn't click out of nowhere but is there a way to fix my old mouse? I can switch the buttons so right click acts as left click so it seems that specific button got practically destroyed

Preferred Solution: Mouse double clicks when I click once and click when I hold it.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Mouse double clicks when I click once and click when I hold it.

Do you mean the other mouse works fine? As far as I know there's no way to fix a mouse other than making sure the trackball or optical lens is clean, whichever your has.

A repair would cost more than a new mouse I suspect. You can get an ordinary one for about $5 or so.

This has generally been happening once a month. When I go to single click an item, the mouse (sometimes) double clicks and opens said item. I don't think this is due to a virus, as I have scanned the computer with avg free. Do I simply need a new mouse? Or is it possibly something more? The mouse is a laser mouse, micro innovations. I'm not sure how good the quality is, but it was pretty inexpensive. Last month when this happened it was a bit more severe, when I clicked on an item, several around it were highlighted and the taskmanager wouldn't even open.

If you can help at all I appreciate it, thank you in advance!

I'm running Win 7 Pro x64 and IE11.

My mouse click appears to be highly sensitive and does multiple clicks when I only click once. For example, if I open the calculator and click on the various number buttons, I will get double or triple numbers.

I've done a complete clean-up and I've removed flash player, but the problem still persists.

Is this a common issue and is there a solution?

For a long time now I've been experiencing issues with my old mouse. My old mouse either double-clicked on a single click, or didn't click at all. I assumed the mouse was failing and got a new one. The new mouse is working fine 99% of the time, but every now and then it will randomly double-click on a single click. The mouse can't be failing as it's brand new. I suspect that when it double-clicks that it is registering the downward click as a click and the upward release as a click as well. What I fail to understand is why this only occurs rarely. For the past week I've been attempting to notice when it does double-click and see that it doesn't matter what application I'm using and that I am not double-clicking by mistake.
 

A:Mouse double-clicks on single click

In most instances, especially when it's that rare of an occurance, it's operator error.

Having said that, you can adjust the double click speed in the mouse settings (Control Panel / Mouse / buttons tab).

Hey all, I got this rather annoying problem lately. As title says, my mouse seems to double click when I just clicked once. You can notice that in browsers, when I click on an address in the suggestions, but the click "goes through" and clicks on a bookmark behind the drop down menu which vanished after first click.

Same goes for youtube, when I just want to pause a video, and single click, the video goes to fullscreen which happens only when you double click. Starts to be really annoying.

Same issue can be noticed in few other circumstances as well.. thou now that I think about it, I think it only occurs browser related.

I am using Mionix saiph 1800 mouse.

A:Mouse double clicks when i single click

Could be the switch in the mouse is causing that. I just got rid of a Microsoft mouse for that exact problem.

Go into the Mouse configuration panel in the Control Panel and change the LEFT mouse click to the RIGHT click. Then try it with the right mouse button and see if you still get double clicks. If you don't that would confirm that the mouse is the problem.

Try updating your $120 mouse to latest driver from manufacturer website. It might resolve the issue.

Also check mouse settings in control panel > hardware > mouse or in mouse software if you have installed it.

Hi, I'm having a very strange issue with my Lenovo G500 laptop that started with my touchpad mouse erratically clicking more than once on a single click. It started as a minor annoyance and escalated to the point where the touchpad mouse no longer works at all. To get around this problem, I now use an external mouse. This worked fine for a while but I am now starting to notice the same issue with it as well.

It does not seem to be a virus or malware or a failed hard drive as I just replaced my HD with a brand new SSD & fresh copy of Windows and I am still having this issue. Any ideas?

I'm wondering it it's possible to use the functionalities of tablet PCs (the Tablet PC Input Panel to write and holding a left click to right click) in a non-tablet PC.

I know, it doesn't sound practical, but my Genius tablet doesn't have an option to use the Tablet PC feature, so I want to know if there's a way to "force" Tablet PC (or a third party program that lets me use the "hold the left click to right click" feature of Tablet PC), even if Windows sees my tablet as just a mouse and not a Tablet PC compatible tablet.

Recently (in the last month) my computer has started giving me a double click on a single click of the left button.  This is very irritating.
It does this with both, a USB Logitech Track Man Wheel and with a wireless HID mouse.
I have tried adjusting the settings for the mouse but that doesn't seem to have any effect.
I have AVAST antivirus.  I have run Microsoft Security Essentials, Malewarebytes Anti-Malware, Spybot search and destroy, Super Anti-Spyware and Junkware Removal Tool.
I have updated all of my drivers and used Drive Booster 3.
When I click to close a window on Firefox it will double click and minimize the browser.
This problem is active in all of my programs that I run, not just the browser.
I have Windows Vista, 64 Bit on a Dell Inspiron laptop.
Does anyone have any suggestions.
I think this has to be a software problem, but I don't know how to correct it or which software is involved..
Thank you

I've never seen any other posts with that same problem so it may be intentionally built-in to that particular mouse to prevent others using your PC when you're away from it. Read it's instructions if you got any with it, it should tell you if it's got a built-in mouse lock, although that feature usually requires additional third-party mouse software to be installed to recognise when the appropriate buttons have been pressed.

If no instructions were supplied, go to it's manufacturer's website to see if it's mentioned there.

Sony laptop VGN S270P w/XP SP2/2600. 1gb RAM.

In ANY application clicking the left mouse button on any choice, for instance, the Start menu, will not hold or stay chosen. I usually have to resort to holding the button down or multiple attempts of clicking or some chicanery. Right button works fine. This happens across all different brands of mice and on the built in mouse pad, or either USB port or the built-in Bluetooth. I have tried every conceivable permutation of settings via Control Panel-still no change in this defect. I have erased all the USB choices in Device Manager and rebooted so they would reload per Microsoft's procedure. No fix. My drivers seem to be the latest versions of Intel 82801DB/DBM USB 2.0.

A really strange behavour happens on my E460: when I use touchpad to left click on a file, it becomes a mouse hold, which means if I move the mouse pointer at this moment, the file is dragged. I can only release the mouse hold by doing a mouse click again. It really makes a lot of trouble as it causes me to accidentally drag some files. Also, when I am using excel, when I click on a cell, due to the mouse click becomes a mouse hold, so when I move the mouse pointer, it begins to highlight a range of cells. I tried to updated the BIOS, and also update to the latest touchpad driver, but none of them solve the problem. I can only solve the problem by removing the touchpad driver, but this cause all the useful features (e.g. scrolling by using 2 fingers) disappear. Also, it causes another problem. When I'm using excel, I can't double click a cell to edit the text inside. I need to triple click to edit, which is very strange. So removing the touchpad driver can solve one problem but bringing two other problems........ Anyone had such kind of issues too? Any way to solve it? Thanks.

Hi Frlill, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You might have your double-click speed set to fast in the Mouse settings in the Control Panel (Classic View). Check there (in Activities tab for me in Mouse settings) and slow it down a bit and test to see if that helps any.

Hope this helps,

Hello walllable. Welcome to the forum.

Yes it could be. That is a common symptom of a defective touchpad.

Two things can help determine this:
If you can attach a mouse or external touchpad and they work normally.
If you uninstall (remove) the touchpad from Device Manager and then restart and let it reinstall and then reinstall it's driver and the problem persists.

I installed a new mouse and have same problems. Haven't changed anything or installed any new hardware or software recently. I have my big hammer and safety glasses handy in case no one gives me a suitable solution.

A:Mouse won't "double click".

Can you discern any pattern to what will open with a double-click and what won't? Will a program that opened with a double-click later require a right-click (or vice-versa)?For a program that you have to right-click, can you also open the program by left-clicking it once and pressing Enter? Also, check your mouse 'double-click speed'. Click the start orb and type in mouse and press Enter. Adjust your double-click speed slider to the left by a few notches and retest. Report your findings in your next reply.

Correct. "Folder Options" refers to Windows Explorer. The "folders" within a program, like WLM, are under the control of the program. However I noticed that my version of WLM (2009) behaves the way you want without the "Reading" pane turned on. If I turn it on then a single click shows the email in the reading pane. If I turn it off, it takes a double click to open the email to view it. The reading pane is controlled via the "Layout" Viewing option.

If that does not work, make a system restore, then go a week before the problem see how it works now.

Hi, i have problems with my mouse double-click speed, it is set as the fastest in mouse properties. So i have tried to reduce this to around half way, applied settings and OK, which seems to solve the problem temporarily, but after shutdown and restarting the machine it reverts back to the fastest setting. Quite confusing as to why XP does not save my changes for the next Startup?

Please could you shed a little light on the matter?

Best regards, Lee

Heck why don't you just use single click.

Windows key+E to open Windows Explorer<tools>folder options.
Choose item labeled "SIngle click to open an item".

so i have been to an internet cyber cafe, its like a room in the street it has computers with internet and you pay according to the time u spent , i went there for the fast internet and the mouse on that computer always releases the clicks or even double clicks sometimes so i thought it was a hardware problem as the mouse could be busted, anyway when i brought back all the things i downloaded, they had viruses in them so i deleted them using avira anti virus, but now my mouse behaves exactly like the mouse at that cyber cafe so im pretty sure its not a hardware problem but some kind of malware or something, i thought avira could detect it all , anyway if anyone has had a similar experience and knows a fix please help
 i just tried using the touch-pad i cliked and held the window and started moving it all around the screen and suddenly it got released while i was still holding the left click and ended up highlighting some text on the page which means it double clicked automatically, im very sure its some virus, please help or i might have to format the laptop , if u need any additional info just tell me how i can get it and i will

My mouse double clicks when I do a single click. I've gone into the mouse options area and everything looks fine. I download music and am almost positive I have some sort of malware from a bad torrent. Thank you for any help.

I have a wired 5-button Microsoft optical Intellimouse, about 5 yrs old. Lately it's double-clicking when I single-click, which obviously is quite annoying. It's not the software mouse clicking speed, that doesn't solve it. I switched to an old mouse temporarily and the problem didn't occur, so it's definitely the hardware. Driver is up-to-date.

So, this mouse is kaput, right? There's nothing I could do to fix this? Thanks.

A:Mouse Double-clicking on Single-click

Well, this is impressive. I googled the problem and found it's a common one with the intellimouse and there's a little free utility out there called, appropriately enough, "MouseFix", which I dl'ed and ran. It appears to have solved the problem. Cool. Saved me having to buy a new mouse.

I have a Logitech Cordless Mouseman Wheel mouse, model number M-RK53.

I have the thumb button and the wheel button both configured for double-click. But when I first turn the PC on, the double-click funtions do not work. As far as I can determine, neither the thumb button nor the wheel button do anything at that time.

If I do a single right or left mouse click anywhere on the screen, then after that the thumb button and the wheel button both provide double-clicks until I turn off and restart the PC, at which time I'm back to no double-clicks from either button.

This function worked (I think) in previous versions of Windows. But since I upgraded to Windows XP Professional something over a year ago, I lost the double-clicks on startup.

And hereís an oddity: As the PC is booting, there is a brief interval prior to completion of the boot process when the mouse cursor is on the screen and can be moved around. If I move the mouse (and thereby the cursor) around on the screen during this interval, then the above-named buttons will provide double-clicks when the booting in complete. If I donít move the mouse during that interval of time, then no double-clicks until I click somewhere on the screen with the left or right mouse buttons.

Using mw9791enu.exe.

Any advice as to how to make the thumb button and the wheel button do the double-click at startup?

Thanks.

Steve

There is a tick box somewhere in the options for mice that says quick initialisation or something like that. Try turning it off.
