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!

  • 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

  • How do you change to single click to open files and folders?

    How do you change from double clicking a file/folder, to single clicking (web style)?

  • 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.

    I had Snow Leopard and was using iWeb and Filezilla for my website (not MobileMe). Wanting to move to single-click publishing (supported by MobileMe), I now find it is not supported by iCloud and Mountain Lion. I feel cheated, having bought it mainly for this purpose! The other thing they don't tell you is that Mountain Lion disables OfficeMac, and I am considering uninstalling it for that reason - do I get my money back?!

    You stated; "Mountain Lion disables OfficeMac"
    That is not true.
    Mountain Lion does not have Rosetta so it is not capable of executing PowerPC code. If you have MS Office 2004 that is coded in PowerPC code and will not run in Mountain Lion. What you need to do is upgrade to an Intel version of Office.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Bug report: nuisance, single click to open table object from connections pane...

    Results frequently (but not always) in two or three tabs being opened for the selected object.

    That's a known bug, will get fixed for the final release.

  • 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

  • Can't "Open in Finder" from Dock

    After running OnyX to clean up my Mac, I find that when I click on a system folder such as Documents or Applications and get the display of folders that if I click on "Open in Finder" or any of the folders displayed nothing happens. It worked before so I must have changed something using OnyX. How do I restore the default mode of operation? BTW - Help was not very helpful in trying to resolve this.

    Whatever the problem was, it went away after I did a Restart.

  • 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

  • "Open in Finder" in dock not working

    Hi there,
    I have many shortcuts to frequently used folders in the dock, which I often use by clicking on "open in finder"to work on iits contents. Since the 10.7.3 update it stoped working. Even the "Show in finder" that can be used to show the apps in the Finder stoped working. Can anyone have an hint of how to solve this?

    It's fixed over in this thread:
    Simple answer: delete Library/Preferences/ and restart.

  • Single Click in Finder Opens Everything :(

    We're having the oddest problem I've ever seen in 20+ years using macs.
    This machine I'm on lately started acting funny. When I click in the finder on any document, a single click to select or highlight automatically opens the file, as if I double-clicked.
    I can't select a file to change it's name, for example. I have to Get Info and change the name that way, becuase no matter what I do the files open with a single click/select.
    I have altered the mouse settings in SP and it doesn't change the result. I also switched mouses to make sure it's not that.
    I really don't want to re-install the system, but is that probably what needs to happen?
    Has anybody ever heard of this and have any ideas?
    Thanks much!

    Hi BulaRae,
    Have you tried creating a new account and see how your Finder works in that User acct? (That will tell if your problem is systemwide or limited to your User acct.)
    Open System Preferences > Accounts > "+" make it an admin account.
    If this works, then log back into your problem account and navigate to ~(yourHome)/Library/Preferences and trash these two files:
    Then log out and back in again. Or restart.
    (You will have to reset a few finder prefs the way you like them.)
    Let us know.

  • Can't open a folder in finder with a single click

    Hi there! So I am a new user of Mac and I tried to change some of its settings on system preferences last night. When I am looking for something on the finder, I noticed that I can't click to open the folder. No matter how many times I clicked on it. So I clicked on the right side of my mouse and found out that the option "Open" is gone only "Open in New Tab" is there. It kind of bothered me because I don't want to keep adding new tabs. Please help!

    If I understand your problem correctly the solution is to select the Finder menu and then Preferences. In the Dialog box a little more than 1/2 down there's a checkmark option Open folders in tabs instead of windows. Make sure that option is NOT check marked.
