    Hello all,


    I need help with the way my mouse behaves [Single click mode] Point to select does not select a file. :)
    On my previous PC I used to use single click mode, where pointing a file selects it.

    On my currect PC this doen't work. I chose single click mode, and when I click on a file once it opens as expected, but it NEVER GETS SELECTED by hovering on it.


    Any ideas how can I solve it, please?


    Many thanks

    Marek.

    :)
