Uncertain double click mouse action on win 7

Hello,

not only on win7 but other versions, different hardware etc, you cannot tell when you double click an icon if it actually launched the application.

slowing down mouse double click in the control panel helps somewhat but how can i get a solid reliable indicator that the double click was heard by windows.

am i the only one who is being driver insane by this common deficiency?

looks like you might have an "uncertain single click mouse action" problem as well seeing as this is double posted.

sorry bout the double post, im a new member of this fine group. ok guess the answers are actually jokes, love to hear a real answer.

some more poop on this .. the proximity to the icon and movement of the mouse within the icon do effect the reliability of the double click .. maybe its just me since im left handed ..

you using a left handed mouse? seriously most mice are ambi, but there are ones which are contoured for lefties and that may help you with the issue... Also what are the specs on your system as it seems the slow response time may be causing the issue... Also, if you don't like double clicking there are settings within windows which will allow you to single click icons.

I was being serious. Get a mouse which gives a good feedback to your finger, and to your ears.

There was a time when I used to triple-click, for similar reasons. I was thinking that either the first-second, or the second-third click will count as double click, and the remaining single click won't hurt anybody.

Try this;
Start->Control Panel->Hardware and Sound->Sound->Change System Sounds->sound-> Open Program
Choose something to play when you double click.
