    Double Click won't open email message/icons

    I use 2007 microsoft outlook and am unable to open my email by double clicking. It does open by left/click/open. I also noticed when I opened control panel to check my system, the double click would not work and I got an alert tone each time I tried.

    Note, my family has 3 separate identities set up on this computer and this problem is only occuring under my identity. The other two identities do not experience this problem at all. Thanks!

    you might have to reset the double click speed.
    Go to Control Panel, type in search 'mouse properties' (if you have a mouse manufacturer icon in the taskbar, do right click and open pointer properties)
    open up the mouse properties, go to the 'buttons' tab and see take a look at the double clicking speed. choose the ideal speed for yourself.

    Hope this helps you out,

    Dom
