Double-click constantly displays properties

Q: Double-click constantly displays properties

Hello
 
I just cleaned underneath the keys of my inspiron 1525 laptop because my stepchildren enjoyed getting sticky substances underneath the keys and I wanted my wife to have better functionality.  I didn't pull up all the keys and used alcohol, pipe-cleaners and q-tips to clean.  After letting it dry a while, I started it up and everything seemed to work fine.  Then I noticed that when I double-clicked on desktop icons, it displayed the 'properties' menu instead of opening.
 
I figured the ALT key was stuck so I took it off and examined it.  It appeared fine but no matter what I seem to do, this continues.  I've tried to follow some online instructions to disable hotkeys but it still continues.  I assumed it was the ALT key but perhaps I'm mistaken. 
 
Any advice and/or methodology would be greatly appreciated.
 
Whoa!  It's worse than I thought!  I went onto a browser and apparently I can't type at all!  What the hell?  The keyboard reacts but not by typing letters, it's as if it's all hotkeys now!
 
ARRRRGH!
 
Help . . . please . . . ?
 
Tried restarting in safe mode and problem persists.  Only thing I can figure is that one or more of the keys are jammed.  Wish I could figure out which one.  Otherwise, I'll have to take off half the damn keyboard.  It doesn't SEEM to be the ALT key since I can still do CRTL-ALT-DEL and bring up the task manager.  Anyone have any ideas which one might be sticking?

Preferred Solution: Double-click constantly displays properties

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.)

Ie. click run, then type MSconfig, flashes the next screen and then disappears, doesn't give the ability make choices. What started this journey was the same thing that was happening for many of your users. I just downloaded hijacker, so that would be prepared if you asked for log, but it does it with this app, too. I have found a removal tool for sasser and blaster worm, run them and put patches on system, but as you know I can't run norton antivirus now.

Hey, folks. As the thread title states my recycle bin in Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit displays empty and shows that it can't be emptied in the context menu, even right after I finish deleting something as simple as a 1KB .txt file. And it doesn't update it's status with a refresh, only when I double click the recycle bin on the desktop.

It's never done this before and just started happening (as far as I'm concerned) randomly a few days ago. I've google searched and found nothing except the trick everyone knows about adding ,0 to the end of the registry for custom icons. But unfortunately this does not solve my problem as it's not just the icon that displays empty but the bin itself.

I have also noticed it's been doing it mostly after I wake my computer up from Sleep/Hibernation but not when I restart my computer after noticing the problem. I do hope someone is able to help as this is just one of those minor but quite annoying bugs that seems to be overlooked or hard to find an answer using vague google searches

Much thanks for anyone's help in advance.

A:Recycle Bin Displays Empty Until Double-Click

Have you changed the Recycle Bin Empty and Full Icons? If yes then this would happen because of a bug in the OS. Normally you should be able to show the correct Icon by clicking refresh in the Desktop context menu.

This occurs intermittently on my Win7 Enterprise installation. Double-clicking on a folder in Explorer opens the properties dialog for the folder, as if I'd right-clicked and then selected properties. Single-clicking works fine and only Explorer acts strangely. The mouse is a vanilla Logitech RX1000. Putting the computer to sleep then waking it again eliminates the problem (until it happens again, about once or twice a day) or it may sort itself out after 10 or 20 minutes. It's rather annoying.James

A:Double-Click in Explorer Opens Properties

Hi,
 
First, I would like to confirm when the issue began to occur. Have any new program or hardware installed on the computer?
 
You can refer to the following steps to troubleshoot the issue.
 
1. Please replace another mouse, such as PS/2 mouse or USB mouse. Does the issue when using other mouse?
 
2. Restart the computer in Safe Mode and double click a folder for test. If the issue persists, please let me know. Otherwise, let's restart the computer in Normal Mode and perform a Clean Boot.
 
Thanks,

I have an Acrox (model MOP) laser mouse and no matter WHAT I set my mouse options to (right now at slowest possible double click setting) whenever I click the left button, I will almost always end up getting a double click. I will excute files when trying to move them, open pictures when trying to delete,.......you get the picture. I checked their website......but I can't figure out how to actually INSTALL the drivers. I've done tons of drivers, but these ones get me. Anybody have any ideas.......it is REALLY aggravating trying to save when the dropdown menu is opened and closed with one click of the mouse.....takes like 4 tries before the menu will open properly and let me choose a location. AAARRRGHH !!
 

A:Constantly getting a double click with Acrox laser mouse

Well, regardless of the speed of the double click, if the button is set to double click it will always double click.

Anyway, go to this Acrox site (Click here), download the driver zip file. When you unzip this file, you'll find more zipped files. Select the one for your model and unzip it. Double click on the setup.exe file or open it from Start > Run. It should install then.

Hi,
 
Thank you for posting.
 
If the issue did not occur previously, please just try System Restore first.
 
I suspect this issue may be also related to the mouse settings. Please go to ?Control Panel\Hardware and Sound? and click ?Mouse? and check your mouse settings; please ensure that the left button is set to ?Click? and right button is ?Right-click?.
 
You may also click the Restore Defaults to reset the mouse settings.
 
If you use some other application to manage the mouse, please also check the settings or just remove it.

right click hangs on all files but not folders for about 30-40 seconds then works fine for a few moments but once I click away or do anything else the problem comes back
using the keyboard to copy hangs and then once the computer "unfreezes" copy/paste with keyboard works fine
double clicking on a file that would launch a program hangs for a while then opens the program.
using the delete key hangs
Otherwise performance is normal everything runs fine while using all programs.

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.

Just a goofy phenomena that seems to be puzzling me. Each time I single click on a desktop icon, it acts like it was double clicked and opens the file/program. When single clicking on a scroll-bar to the right of a window, it acts like it was double clicked, traveling much further down the screen than expected.

Hello,

I came up to a problem that I cannot solve. Using the Explorer (not IE but the plain explorer to organize folders and files) I cannot change the behaviour of an Active Desktop like in WinXP or others.

I am very used to this procedure: single click = mark an object / doubleclick = execute an object.

Unfortunately, the Explorer just uses the option single click = execute. I remembered the option in XP/Vista, that you can go to Extras -> folder options -> Select Elements and tick a radio button for the Active Desktop method or the classic method (execute via doubleclick). Just as described in the tutorial "Single-Click or Double-Click to Open an Item" within this forum.

I tried this, and now I'm getting nuts: The radio button is already put on the classic mode (execute by doubleclick, select by single click). The other option is grey, i.e. it cannot be selected.

I guess, there's some tick wrong in the registry or else, but I cannot find out which. Does anyone has an idea what can be done?

A:folder options / single-click or double-click

The checkbox/radio button option is under the View tab in the same dialog.

Hello all, from a few days until now I have started experiencing what seems to be a recurrent problem in the P50 laptop touchpad drivers. When using the driver 19.3.4.16 for synaptics pointing device, the left button of the touchpad double clicks most of the times (about 70-80% of the time). If I decide to update my drivers to the latest version, 19.3.4.202, then something even worse happens: the left and right buttons are inverted (and I have checked that the box of inverting the buttons in control panel is unclicked). From what I have been reading this has been an issue that has happened before already, but I don't know if Lenovo fixed it, or it has just been unsolved until now. Maybe someone around here can help me with this?

My exact problem....If i wanna listen to an mp3 file if i double click over that it takes 30sec to 2min...if i open the media player and drag the file over that....its fine...

plez help me sort out this problem....

i even tried to see if that were a virus problem but it was not....i scanned all the drives with Norton...
 

A:problem while i do right click or double click...

Hiya and welcome

Are you still having this problem? If so, lets take a look at a log. go to http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Regards

eddie

A:double click

Try "control panel", then mouse. There will be a setting in one of the tabs there that should do it.

I cannot double-click anything on my PC. I have tried the mouse settings and reconnecting the mouse and restarting the PC. I also tried a different mouse with no luck. I feel that this is not a hardware issue at all; I think it is a trojan or hijacker or something similar. I would appreciate any help or insight into this. Thank you.

Recently I changed my wireless Logitech mouse's left button to function as a double-click instead of click/select.The problem is that I changed it in the computer settings, not the mouseware properties.The article said it would save batteries and my mouse would last twice as long.Unfortunately now when I try to open some menus I don't have enough time to see what I'm selecting(preview).I change the button configuration in the mouseware properties but I still can't get that button to change back.The real problem is I can't remember how I changed the settings in the first place. HELP!
 

A:double click

Control Panel, Mouse, Buttons ??
