I want to be able to double click to select a file or folder.

But I don't want underlining to automatically appear under a folder as soon
as I put my cursor on that folder in Windows Explorer's folder tree.

I don't get automatic underlining when I hover the cursor over the entries
on the right side pane of Windows Explorer

How do I remove the automatic underlining from the folder tree?

Hi,

You can only double click to OPEN a file or folder and not just selecting it. You can set this through tools > folder
options and on the general tab, select 'Double click to open and item'.

I am (almost) sure that in "double click mode" I was able to hover over the
Windows Explorer folder tree without any clicks and I would NOT get the
underlining.

That is what I am trying to get to.

Hi Zak,

Single click underlines. As for hover, check your settings here:

TweakUI/Mouse/X-Mouse: http://tinyurl.com/h8zs

Right click the Start button/Properties/Customize/Advanced/Open submenu's
when I pause on them with my mouse.

In the Folder Options, View tab, uncheck "Display simple folder view....."
