I want to slow down double-click speed.
Many actions in Windows require that you click the left mouse button twice in quick succession to work. This is called a 'double click'.
Many people experience difficulty double clicking, because the time in which they have to do two quick clicks of the left mouse button is too short.
It is easy, however, to slow down the speed at which you need to double click and this section shows you how.
Slowing down your mouse's double-click speed in Windows 7
' Ease of Access Center ' has replaced ' Accessibility Options ' in the ' Control Panel '.
Open ' Ease of Access Center ' press ' Windows ' logo key + 'U ' or click ' Start button ' + ' Control Panel ' + ' Ease of Access ' + ' Ease of Access Center '.
Select ' Make the mouse easier to use ' and then ' Mouse settings ' under see also.
This will open the ' Mouse Properties ' window.
You can also reach the ' Mouse Properties ' window via ' Control Panel ' + ' All Control Panel Items ' + ' Mouse '.
To change the speed at which you double click the mouse button, press ' Alt ' + ' D ' and using the arrow keys or click on the pointer, move it to make the setting slower or faster. You can test your setting by double clicking on the folder icon.
Note: If this does not work it could be because your computer settings cannot be changed due to local IT policies - contact your local IT support for further help.
