As you are no doubt aware, the on-screen mouse cursor is used for more than displaying the location of the mouse. It provides a visual feedback mechanism to inform you of the current status of the operating system and the options available. Figure 14 shows some of the more common ones.
If the single-click option is confusing to many users, why is it there? The single click feature is to make the desktop emulate the Web, where a single click causes an action, and is intended to make a PC easier to use by those whose primary interaction with it is through a web browser such as Internet Explorer. To toggle this option on and off, open an Explorer window (for example, by double clicking My Computer on the desktop), select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
The bottom option on this dialog tab allows you to toggle between single and double clicking.
