Single click to open apps

Is there a way I can set my applications to open with a single click like they do when an icon is clicked in system preferences and like they do from when you launch them from the dock? Thanks.

If you are thinking of a way to have all your applications handy but not clutter up your dock, you can drag the whole applications folder into the left hand side of the dock (where the trash can is). Use the source folder in your root directory, not the side panel. This inserts an alias - all you have to do is control click it and you have a list of all the items inside there that will open with a single click
Hope that helps

  • How can i change the tab bar from opening a new tab when single clicked to open one only when double clicked?

    Out of habbit, i double click the tab bar and it opens 1 tab. however in the new beta, it opens 2.
    Is there anyway to change this so single clicks dont open new tabs on the tab bar?

    I don't have multiple tab bars and haven't installed anything to try and get them.
    I re-read what I wrote earlier and realised it's not worded clearly when I said: If I have more than a single tab bar of tabs open
    I meant: When I have so many tabs open that they won't all fit into the tab bar at once

  • I used to single click to open mail & now I have to double click.  I have not changed preferences.  Any suggestions?

    I have always single clicked to open mail.  Now I have to double click.  I have not touched preferences or made changes.  Any suggestions?

    From where are you launching Mail? The only place, unless I've missed or forgotten something, you can launch an application with a single click is from the Dock. Is this what you're doing, or are you attempting to launch Mail from the Applications folder?

  • Single click to open email

    I have version 3.6 of Apple mail. I used to be able to single click to open a message. Now I have to double click. What do I need to do to change it back to a single click?

    Look for a tiny gray tick at the bottom middle of the message list, drag that tick upwards.

  • Single-click to open in finder

    Is there an option to have single-click open files and folders in the Finder?

    You're welcome.
    I use the Logitech Control Center software that shipped with the mouse, though I actually downloaded the latest version from the Logitech Web site — vs. using the version that came on the included CD — to be sure I had the latest version.
    The version I am using is for PPC. I don't believe they've released a Universal Binary yet for Intel-based Macs: I did not see anything to this effect on their Web site when I checked today. You could contact Logitech about the availability of a Universal Binary. I suspect one may be forthcoming: many vendors have to address the move to Intel-based Macs.
    You wrote: "Can you configure the mouse-wheel click to open in a new tab in Safari?"Yes. Any button can be configured for a custom keystroke. Since the keyboard combination to open a new tab in Safari is Command-T (assuming tabbed browsing is enabled), one could configure any button on the mouse to perform Command-T when pressed.
    Good luck!

  • Clicking update opens apps, but does not update them

    When I click "update" in the app store, the app that should update opens, but does not update.
    DEVICE: I am using an ipad mini with iOS 7.0.6 and 5.6 GB of storage available.  I don't have any kind of app manager apps or anything like that.
    closing all apps and rebooting
    signing out of app store, closing all apps, rebooting, and signing back in to app store
    deleting apps to create more space
    changed app store settings to update automatically

    Here's a link to a thread that solved the problem for me:
    The culprit was that the Flash plugin needed updating for FF. That was it.
    Go to Firefox; Preferences; General (tab); Add-ons; Manage Add-ons; Plugins.
    I clicked on Find Updates and immediately updated the Flash plugin.
    Hope this helps others.

  • Single click to open plugins?

    seems like a minor thing but as a PT user this is a real pain (double click for about 10hrs of mixing and it makes a huge difference)

    Basically I'm asking is if there's a pref that I'm overlooking to set plugins to open with a single mouse click.
    No, there isn't. It is one of the few things that are still "mouse-only" in Logic. There is the shortcut "V" to hide/show plugins that are already open, and you could create screensets for different open plugins, but that would require quite some preparatory actions, for every individual project.
    You can make them open automatically when they are inserted/loaded (I believe this is set by default), however, the inserting itself is a mouse only action too.

  • Help w/ fixing my broken ipod touch. I have to double click on an app in order to open it, can't leave the home screen, apps don't work!

    I'm not sure what happened, but I can't leave my home screen unless I press n hold an app and move it to another page, then when i press the home button so the apps stop shaking I can stay on another page. Other than doing it that way I can't scroll from one page to another. When I click on an app a thin box appears around it, not only with apps but when I click on the time or battery or ANYTHING! In order for me to open any of the apps I have to double click on it and then when it opens I can't do anything in the app. Even when I went to settings to see if there was something in there to fix this problem I can't go anywhere or do anything. Someone please help!!!

    Im having this same problem an my phone is about 3 weeks old. I am not sure about the voice over part though...I have not yet figured out how to work the voice recognition part of the phone...I am such a newbie with this phone. I did the power off/on suggestion, several times. I tried leaving it off for 10 minutes. Tried to reset with the power on/off and home button pressed at the same time. Charged battery. Still makes no difference. You cannot scroll any direction. Have to double click to open apps. Have to double click letters when texting or emailing in order to get the letter in the text box. Can scroll through app choices, have to click on the line with the dots in it and move from page to page. Can't access the settings - > general - > accessibility - because it won't allow me to scroll down to "general".
    Anyone help you with your fix yet?

  • Single Click a Book to display html assigned

    I have a book which has an HTML file attached to it. How do I
    set this so that when a user just clicks the book the topic linked
    to it opens? It appears right now my users are having to
    double-click it. But topics underneath are all single click.

    Hi Mary
    Normally if you have a topic assigned, it will display by
    simply clicking the book. Are you asking about also having the book
    open on a single click?
    If so, that's done in an option when you compile. If you
    click File > Generate and get to the intermediate dialog, look
    near the bottom for a button labeled Edit... and click it. You
    should then see another dialog appear with a couple of tabs. Click
    the tab labeled TOC Styles. On this tab are a bunch of check boxes.
    The one you want is labeled "Single click to open books".
    Cheers... Rick

  • Windows 7 classic shell without single click??

    I have 700 windows xp machines in a retail environment that I am prepping to swap out with Windows 7 machines.  These xp machines are joined to our domain, and fairly locked down via group policy.  I am in the process of putting together our new
    Windows 7 image and building the group policies.  Our goal is to maintain as much of the same look and feel that we have with our Win XP machines for this application.
    That being said - I have enabled Windows Classic theme (by leaving UserConfiguration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Personalization > Force a specific visual style or force Windows Classic blank).  This seems to work just fine.
     I have the expected results for background, start menu, window appearance.  What is confusing me is - my mouse somehow got set to single click.  I do not want this.  It seems to have happened with turning on windows classic??  I haven't
    been able to find a GPO or GPP (or registry hack, for that matter) to turn it off.
    I look in Explorer > Folder and search options > Click items as follows - Double-click to open an item is the radio button that is marked active.  I was able to set my staging user (non admin level) to a local admin, re-login, click Single click
    to open an item --> click apply --> click double click to open an item --> click apply and ok.  Now things are as I want them.  It seems that by manually making this change it does the trick.  I won't have this luxury in the field.
    Any input as to a workaround or what is actually going on would be greatly appreciated.

    To disable the "single click", you need to disable the GPO setting "Turn on Classic Shell" under the node given below,
    User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer\Turn on Classic Shell

  • On all my other apps and browsers, I have my system set up to open things with a doubleclick. In Firefox, however, a single click opens things, and it's very annoying since I wind up with duplicate pages -- where can I change this option to double-click?

    I think my question explains my issue, but I particularly have this issue on when I try to open a game room. The system tells me someone else with my user name is trying to enter the room at the same time, so it boots us both out. I have contacted Pogo, and they tell me it's a Firefox issue. There must be an option somewhere, like a OS has, to pick between single and double clicks to open an app, but I can't find it in Firefox. My mouse is set in XP for double-click.
