Application start via single click


Hello,

I'm using Linux Mint 14. I changed from Ubuntu to that OS.

My problem is that I was used to start actions via single click.
Now I have to double click. I searched in the admimistration but found no possibility to change this behaviour.

BR

Do you mean in the file manager? In that case, start it and click on Edit - Preferences - Behaviour and you can select 'single click'.

I did not guess that Linux is such a "copy" of MS. But next time I'll check first how Win works. ;-))

yeah, about 'that'...
The File Manager controls this behavior in Linux, but Explorer.exe does it in Windows.
