Answer: Add notepad++ to the right click New> field

Hi, New -> create new document of particular file type. Which type do you wish to create?

If you simply wish to open Notepad++ by right clicking, that's a different thing.

For example New, Text Document, creates a new empty file called New Text Document.txt.
It doesn't launch a program.

So what now do you actually want to do?

I support a software program that has a proprietary menu item when you right-click a calculated field. It has been this way for 10-15years and has worked in WinXP through Win10 with never an issue. This past week I had 3 different customers tell me that when they right-click one of these fields to access what is normally the Cut/Copy/Paste/ menu that also includes our menu item, they are now getting the Windows default cut/copy/paste/Right to Left Reading order/Show Unicode control characters/ etc menu. The only thing I can think of that they all have in common besides these are all Window 10 64bit pc's, is that they all have one update to Adobe Acrobat (17.012.20098).
I was able to resolve for a moment on two of these workstations by having the user go into Language/Advanced settings and actually selected "English (Unites States) from the "Override for Windows display language" even though that settings is implied by the "recommended". But after the pc was turned off over night and back to it the next day, the problem is back and that setting is still selected. All language and regional settings on all the pc's are defaulted to English/Unites States. I do not know what other avenue to go in. Could something hae been switched on or off in Windows (by this Adobe update perhaps?) that would make the context text menu switch to Windows text default right-click menu?

Any help is appreciated!

Recently there's been an annoying little animation pop up whenever I click something. I can't really explain it, but it's similar to the blinking | you see when typing in text fields. Everything I click on something it shows up. It's really annoying. It even happens when I click a picture, except it appears as a HUGE blinking bar. Can someone help?

I have Notepad pinned to my taskbar and when I used to right click on it it would show a list of the 10 or so recent txt files I had opened. It suddenly stopped doing that today, even though I didn't change any settings.

Hi.

I have the following problem with notepad under Windows 7 Ultimate (Spanish).

When I double click any text with characters like +, -, !, %, $, ?; the selection stops at any of those characters.

Example:

abcd+efg
abcd-efg
abcd!efg
abcd%efg
abc$efg
abcd?efg

This is very annoying when I try to select an URL in notepad.

Any idea about why is this happening?

Thanks in advance.

Hi , very weird problem on my son's computer - when you double-click on any executable (like IE, firefox, norton etc) , instead of running it , XP opens it in notepad as document. Please help asap. Son does not know or does know but does not want to tell me if he has changed anything himself or .... Thank you.

Answer:any application is openned by notepad when you double click it

Sounds like files of the .exe type have been told to open with that program. Typically this can be fixed by going to Windows Explorer and clicking on TOOLS>FOLDER OPTIONS>FILE TYPES and then scroll down the list to see if there is one for the extension .EXE and see what is indicates for "OPENS WITH". Normally you wouldn't find an entry for .exe, but if you do, that's the issue.

Hey.

A Reg cleaner I used messed up my computer pretty badly (things it said had no file or program for turned out to mostly be programs that came with the Toshiba or part of WinXp; didn't want to go back to the old registry b/c, as messed-up as things got...it did ultimately fix a bigger problem I was having previously)...SO...I've got everything back in place, save for two minor issues:

The Fn Hotkeys only work if I find the executable file and double-click it.

Notepad is no longer in my right-click menu when I'm on my desktop.

There may actually be a few more minor things, but those're the two driving me crazy these days.

Thanks for any help folks can offer!

Answer:Satallite A105 -- No Fn Hotkey and No Notepad in right-click menu

Why don?t you try to set the OS back to the point where you have messed the registry?

The OS supports the system restore tool which helps to set beck the OS to the early time point.

Maybe it helps.

If not then try to reinstall the touchpad driver. This should help too?

In worst case the recovery CD could be the last resort?

Good luck

Hi all,I replaced my power supply to upgrade from 250w to 480w.  I carefully unplugged the old and re-plugged the new (after unplugging power source) and when I confidently turned everything back on the hard drive seems not to work.  there's a faint beep but I'm not sure if it's the POST beep or not.  (I have a vague understanding of that)Instead, the hard drive clicks quite clearly and it clicks 4x then pauses, then 4x, pause, etc, etc. I tried re-plugging the old power supply back in and get the same result.   The computer screen just stays blank the whole time.Did my hard drive just die at that point?   Could switching ps cause the hd to die?a few facts:I do touch the computer case before I stick my hands in there to remove static charge.HD is western digital caviar 40g  WD400Computer is 3ghz P4 running xp with sp3replacement power supply says it's for a P4 and it fits perfectly where the old one came out, same connections etc.I have a 160g drive on it's way from Ebay that I intended to replace this drive with anyway and I have the 40g drive backed up on an external so it's not a disaster but it sure is an inconvenience.I'm ready to try hitting it on the side (percussive maintenance) but thought I'd try a post first. :-)Thanks,John

I'm doing a quick-and-(very)dirty design as a proof of concept. During this process I fat-fingered the word Description, as Ddescription. No problem, I know what it means, right. But it annoyed me, so I changed the underlying table (where the error occurred), deleted the control from the form, and added the (now correctly spelled) control.

However, every time I try and ruin the form it wants a value for the now non-existent field Ddescription. I simpy click-through, and the form runs fine. When I look at the available fields in the form's View query's Field List, it still shows Ddescription, and i seems to think it's coming from the underlying table.

Any ideas on how I can remove this phantom field? I can't find anything called "The_View_for_form_FooBar" anywhere, but I know it must exist somewhere...

I attached my database what i would like to do is create a form when an end user will enter a corresponding user ID from that I wish to populate textbox fields with Agent Name, Supervisor, Location, Dept *all seperate text boxes of course* I have attached the database if someone could help me do this it would be great. Let me know if you need any further details to help get me through this.
 

Answer:update field A in form based on entry in field b

Welcome to the forum, before answering you question can I suggest some improvements to your database.
Currently you do not have any "Key", "Indexed" fields in your tables and there are no relationships set up between the tables.
Also do you really need the Archive Table?
The data looks like it has been exported in from a spreadsheet, relational databases work quite differently to spreadsheets, so to make the most of their advantages you need to correctly relate your Tables.
Your UserID Roster also has some disconnect between the Field Names and the actual data in them, particularly the Name and Type feilds.
In the Supervisor Table the Birthdate does not seem to have Translated correctly.

I am working on a database that stores genus, species, and variety I want to sort the data with genus, then species, then variety.

Now the tricky part. Sometimes there is no species. When this is the case, I want the database to sort that record off of variety.

I have though of a way to do this, but need help with the code.

If I make a species2 field, I could create an expression that would look at the species field. If the species field is empty, it could copy the data from variety. If it is not empty, then copy the data in the species field.

Once the species2 field has the updated data, I could then do a sort

genus, species2, variety

The report would have genus, species and variety showing and species2 would be checked off to not show in the report.

I am using Microsoft Access 2000.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.
 

Answer:Access - if field is blank, copy field A, if not copy field B

You should not actually need another field to do this, just another column in your report's Query. Something like this as a Field header :-

dummySpecies: iif(isnull([species]), [genus], [species])

this should provide a column with the species in if it there and the genus if it is not, which you can use in place of your actual species field in the report for sorting.

I know the Include Field will include part of the text from an Include File if it is in a bookmark. The format is {IncludeText "File Path" Bookmark}. I have 2 files: Source and Target.

Source is a form template. I included a Text Form Field and gave it the bookmark AA. I also included other text in a "normal" bookmark, BB.

In Target I have 2 fields: {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" AA} and {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" BB}. The text from BB shows up, but the one for AA is blank.

If I go into Source and look under Bookmarks, both AA and BB are there.

BTW, I have tried it with the Source form both "Protected" and "Unprotected" and it didn't make any difference.

Any idea why this is happening, and more importantly, any idea on how to make this work? If not, it seems like a real bug in Word 2003 as they are both definitely considered to be bookmarks.

Hi one and all.

I have a problem with copying and pasting the lyrics of a song into Notepad so that it is Courier.

If my friend who is a music teacher, copies the text into Notepad under XP, it converts properly and the chords above the lyrics look to be in the exact places.

He is teaching my daughter and has sent me the document to print in Notepad.

This is when the problem begins. I open it up and the chords are not in the correct places. I am using Notepad under Office 2007 version.

So I copied and pasted the text from the website as courier, but got exactly the same as what I got when I opened the file up.

Does anybody have a clue why this is happening?

This is the link to the lyrics http://www.ourwholeworld.com/banana_boat_song.htm , just in case somebody wants to try copying and pasting in their version of notepad. It needs to finish up as courier as that is fixed width.

Many thanks for any clues.

If I had known how much hassle Win 7 was I would have stuck with XP! Well I suppose its a learning curve....

Latest major hassle, I have a text file on my E:\drive, this is a copy of my XP C:\ drive before I installed Win 7 on it.

I have now been able to get to it after changing the security settings, and then tried to drag and drop my Blacklist.txt to a newly installed version of the program (Mailwasher Pro) on my C:\ drive. I was not allowed to do this as "Notepad: Access is denied", I could not open it either to copy as again "Access is denied". What ever I try access is denied. This applies to Wordpad as well.

I am setup, as far as I can tell as administrator, I have printed and read the tutorial - Permissions - Alloy or Deny Users and Groups. but this did not seem to help, when I open the security tab it shows:
System
and a long, long set of numbers, there is no administrator or user information as I have seen in other Security tabs.

It was dead easy in XP just drag and drop or open in Notepad and copy paste across!

Is there a way to get around this problem?

The document I'm using is linked to a very sophisticated database software program and I have received instructions on merging data from this database INTO the INCLUDEPICTURE field to create the filename for the photo files. An example is typed below:

{INCLUDEPICTURE "G:\\START\\IMAGES\\PHOTOS\\{MERGEFIELD "PROVIDER_LAST_NAME"}_{MERGEFIELD "PROVIDER_FIRST_NAME"}.GIF"}

In the above example, the photo filenames are all matched up to the fields referenced in the formula (last_first.gif). These are the correct field codes, and the double slashes are important, I have been told.

My problem is that as soon as I save the document containing the above field, the underscores all change to "%20" and the field doesn't work!! No one at my software vendor's help desk can help me with this problem. Does anyone know anything about preventing this??

Thank you!

Cheryl

I have 2 tables that are linked by a zipcode field. One one table there is a kinda count field. If the zipcode field on the first table is updated, then I want the count on the second table to increase by one.How can I go about doing this? Thanks for all the help.

Additional info left out: The zipcode field on the count table has a list of zipcodes. When a zipcode is entered on the other table, I want it to match the zipcode in the count table and update the count for that zipcode. Thanks.
 

Answer:Update one field in a table based on another field in another table.

Not quite sure what you are trying to do, but is linking the zip code fields a good idea? Are you tring to find the number of times that a particular zip code is entered?

Hey guys,
Windows 7 version of notepad comes with some annoying features when codeing.
Is there anyway I can revert back to the XP version of notepad?
Thanks
 

Answer:Solved: Revert from Windows 7 notepad to Windows XP notepad

If you are running Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate you can install XP Mode. This would allow you to launch the XP version of Notepad as a Virtual App. Otherwise you could just try copying over the executable of Notepad from an install of XP to your Windows 7 computer.

Why don't you actually use a text editor that has syntax highlighting for your coding. I have been using Notepad++ for many years now and have not turned back.

Hello there, I've been having a problem that's been persisting for a while now. I couldn't find any solution online, so I'm hoping to find an answer here. I own an IdeaPad P500 Notebook installed with Windows 8. A little while after purchasing this model, I've been getting the problem of my touchpad's left-click button occassionally functioning like if I right-clicked. The problem kept persisting, so I looked into downloading the touchpad driver for this model. That fixed the issue for a bit, but then it returned again. I attempted to re-download the driver, but that didn't help any. I've gone for a while living with it, since I can get by with most activities with it just being a minor annoyance. With some things, however, it becomes noticeably bothersome. The frequency of it seems to increase the longer the laptop is on, as well. With the lack of information pertaining to this issue, I'm beginning to think I need to send it in for repairs. Is that what I need to do? Or is there some way I can fix this manually? Please respond to me as soon as you're able, and I thank you in advance.

Answer:(IdeaPad P500 Laptop) Left-click button randomly acts like a right-click.

hi UnKnown_Drive,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
This is a weird activity on the touchpad and it looks like there's a short that's trigerring the right clicker. Can you try to boot into Safe Mode and observe the PC.
 
If the problem persists, there's possibility that the touchpad is defective and you need to contact lenovo for service.
 
 
Let me know your findings.
 
Cheers.

I'm wondering it it's possible to use the functionalities of tablet PCs (the Tablet PC Input Panel to write and holding a left click to right click) in a non-tablet PC.

I know, it doesn't sound practical, but my Genius tablet doesn't have an option to use the Tablet PC feature, so I want to know if there's a way to "force" Tablet PC (or a third party program that lets me use the "hold the left click to right click" feature of Tablet PC), even if Windows sees my tablet as just a mouse and not a Tablet PC compatible tablet.

I ran the System File Checker as suggested; it detected no problems. I have two PCs with Windows 10. On the one that I upgraded to Windows 10 most recently, I have no problem. On the one that I upgraded about 9 months before that (it is a Samsung laptop), I can only access the right-click menu (which is equivalent to entering Win X from the keyboard). This is not a big problem since I'm able to do everything by accessing any .exe that I need straight from the folder C:\Program Files (x86), or sometimes C:\Program Files. I also use the command prompt frequently, so I am quite familiar with getting around without the colorful left-click start menu. However, this clearly means that something did not install correctly. Could this be some sort of flaw in the registry changes when I installed Windows 10, or could something be wrong in the C:\Windows\System32 folder?

Hello, Would someone please be able to help me. I recently got my computer back after being repaired and it was on a small resoultion under the 1000's. I bought a new screen to go with it and just turned it on. I went to display settings and changed resoultion to 1920x1080 and now its just a big blank stretched wallpaper with no icons, task menu/bar or start menu. I also can't click or right click thus I have no way to change this back. I've tried going into normal safe mode and display settings changed it to the smallest, restarted the computer and its doing the exact same thing. I know no fixes and would really appreciate all the help I can get.

Answer:Changed Resoultion, Icons, Taskbar, Start menu All gone. Can't Click or right click

Follow the below steps:
Press CTRL+Alt+delete together and hit enter
Click on File and New Task (Run)
Type "Control" without any quotes. This will open control panel Window, from where you can easily get to display settings options and change your PC resolution back to it's initial state.

I purchased a T440s a few months ago. Suddenly I am unable to right click on my touchpad in order to open drop down menus, where they are available,or to right click while highlighting text? I manage to do this if  I click on a specific spot around the bottom, middle of the touchpad, but this takes a lot of fiddling around in order to get the precise spot that happens to work.  It is certainly not a practical solution.  Does this sound like a physical hardware issue, that I need to bring my laptop to the depot for, or might this be something else that can be addressed within my settings or some sort of update?   Has anybody else had this specific problem?   Thanks!

using the keyboard to copy hangs and then once the computer "unfreezes" copy/paste with keyboard works fine
double clicking on a file that would launch a program hangs for a while then opens the program.
using the delete key hangs

Not sure how else I can title this post!

I have a new Dell Inspiron 15r as of this Christmas, running Windows 8. I ran the upgrade to 8.1 but I still have a problem with my cursor wanting to "hover click" on links or browser tabs, as well as being stuck in the down position, when I'm not even pressing on the touchpad left button. I end up selecting an entire region of stuff while moving the cursor across the screen.

I can't figure out what to change or configure in Control Panel, or is it in the Dell Touchpad configuration utility?

In Control Panel/Ease of Access Center/Make Your Mouse Easier To Use I have unchecked "Activate a Window by hovering over it with a mouse." Still happens.

It's driving me mad - never had this problem with Win 7 or any desktop machine.

Anyone? Thank you.

Answer:Dell Inspriron Hover-Click and Left-Click Gets Stuck

If you go into Mouse in Control Panel, then click Device Settings Tab.. on the right there's a Settings Button. I turned off the ones that say swipe. I also disabled rapid app switching. To do that press Winkey-q click Settings on the top right. Type "swipe" in the box. You should see a box on the left about rapid app switching. Click it and you can then disable it.

This is my first laptop also. The mouse gestures drove me crazy. About all I kept was tap click. Also I bought a $5 optical USB mouse and a $.97 mouse pad. I keep these in my Laptop case. When I have time and room to set up the mouse pad I feel much better about using the machine.

Correct. "Folder Options" refers to Windows Explorer. The "folders" within a program, like WLM, are under the control of the program. However I noticed that my version of WLM (2009) behaves the way you want without the "Reading" pane turned on. If I turn it on then a single click shows the email in the reading pane. If I turn it off, it takes a double click to open the email to view it. The reading pane is controlled via the "Layout" Viewing option.

I'm using a brand new Yoga 13 (Window 8 Pro).  Clicking on the touchpad (not the touch screen) sometimes has issues.  Specifically, every once in a while, a single-click on the touchpad will result in double-click behavior. I'm not referring to tapping, but rather physical clicking (press, depress touchpad on the lower left). I disabled tap-to-click in case it was registering the tap, and then the click.  That didn't resolve the issue. I also increased the speed required (within Windows) for a double-click to the fastest (least time between clicks) possible.  That also didn't resolve the issue. It really seems like the touchpad, every once in a while, registers a double-click, like some sort of physical defect in the touchpad that presses, depresses, presses depresses immediately. Ideas?

My son has just purchased a Satellite P850 laptop to use for school work and gaming and has noticed a problem with the behaviour of the touchpad.

When using the touchpad, if you have one finger in the area of the touchpad used for mouse movement, and then try to click the right hand mouse button, the laptop behaves as if you clicked the left mouse button. If you click the right hand mouse button when you are not touching the mouse movement area, it behaves correctly.

We have tried changing various touchpad settings but have not been able to correct this problem. We have also updated the drivers for the touchpad to the latest version from the Synaptics website, but the problem still exists.

Is there a particular driver or setting that gives the correct behaviour of the right hand mouse button whilst still touching the touchpad with the other finger?

Sorry but I use touchpad too but in moment when I use one of the touchpad buttons I don?t touch touchpad area at this moment. I have two Toshiba notebooks and I tried to test this on both of them but none of them react on the way described in your posting.

As far as I know such behaviour can be result of ?confused? touchpad.
>... when you are not touching the mouse movement area, it behaves correctly.
In my opinion it is the right way to use touchpad correctly. I don?t think you can change anything using some other touchpad driver. Preinstalled driver is tested and I think the right one.

Dell Latitude - XPsp3

This is a problem with the built in mouse pad. I left click something like the desktop and the options menu comes up as though it was a right click. It's not a software setting, as I've checked them all, and I've reinstalled XP.

The only (temporary) fix I can apply is to plug in a usb mouse. Then the touchpad mouse will act appropriately. But it reverts back to this issue upon reboot.

I'm using the track point for navigation and the touchpad for the mouse click functions, I notice that when I click the touch pad once the laptop registers 2 clicks, this is especially noticeable when using hotmail, i.e. you delete 1 email from the inbox and the next one is also deleted as well. It is as if the de-bounce on the track pad isn't working that well, any ideas what causes this and is there a setting I can adjust to increase the de-bounce period? Thanks J

As it stands the t440s is unusable for trackpoint users. Clunking the clunkpad is stressful both physicall for repetitive stress, the sound is psyhcologically stressful, and it is even annoying my coworkers. The driver update today Feb 28th does nothing to resolve the main problem, which is that there is no tap to click option for trackpoint users. You have to thunk and physically click when using the trackpoint. LENOVO, are there plans to fix this?

Answer:Are the plans to allow trackpoint tapping to click rather than clunking to click on the clunkpad?

Better yet, allow a trackpoint click to be registered with pressure rather than an actual tap. This would be ideal and maybe even better than the previous physical buttons.  Tell me this is coming and I won't return my t440s. It looks feasible, linux developers are implementing in their t440s driver.

Using window 10 and everything was fine and one day lost the icon tray when right clicking the start button. Did a sfc scannow and came up:
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some
of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For
example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently not
supported in offline servicing scenarios

Error: 0x800f081f

Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=243077.

Answer:Start button (except left click) and others dont work with right click

Try the following:

The following downloads new files
Open a Powershell window and at the prompt type (or copy and paste)
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth and press <Return>.

Be patient while this proceeds.
Finally, post back the result, after checking your symptoms.

(If this does not work, the next stage will be an in-place upgrade repair install, which keeps almost everything).

Please advise your windows build:
Windows key + R, type 'winver'

Hi guys. I'm new here. My Lenovo Z585 is only a couple months old, but I've had this problem since new. It doesn't happen all the time, but it happens about 5 out of 10 times. When I click on my right touchpad button, it works as the left button. I constantly use the left mouse button to open a page in a new tab, or to see the properties of a file/program. Instead of seeing the box of options, it opens the page. It happens way too often and it's frustrating. At first I thought I might have been touching the pad with my palm or something, but I tested it many times with my finger on the button only and it still opens the page. I just tested it again, but this time with my nail, and it works as the left button 9 out of 10 times. WTH is going on? I installed the latest driver for it. I know it's not set to switch the left and right buttons. Does anyone know what the problem might be? Thanks, Ish 

Answer:Ideapad Z585 Right click works as left click... Frustrating

Hello Ishforce, I also recommend recalibrating your touch pad mouse before considering getting it replaced. You can do so by going to your control panel, select Hardware and Sound, then under printers and Devices, select mouse, and from there, you should see your touchpad device. Select it and go through the tabs until you see one where you can recalibrate it. Hope that helps.

The right-click touchpad button on my Lenovo Flex 2/15 is not working: it does nothing.  Left click is okay.  When I plug in a mouse, right-click on the mouse does work.  When I turn on the 2-finger tap, it also does not open a  context menu.  I have Windows 10, but the problem started a week after the installation, so I don't think it is a Windows probllem.  Suggestions?

Welcome to the forum!
 
Chances are that you'll need to replace the palmrest. Not a difficult operation, and not an expensive one either.
 
Good luck.

Can anyone please help me figure out the solution to this? My Dell 14R 5437's touchpad isn't properly working lately. It's right-click button and double-tap to right click function isn't working as intended; the left-click button and single-tap to left click function is working ok. When plugging an external mouse, however, I can right click as normal.
I tried reinstalling the driver from the Dell website and it's still not working properly. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

For the last few weeks whenever I left click on the desktop it brings the right click menu. This dosen't happen in the browser (firefox), but only in the windows desktop and start menu. However i the browser if I am on a web player like youtube, the portion that displays the video fails to display my cursor. as a result i am not able to control the video settings in the browser. any help is much appreciated !

Answer:Left click brings up right click context menu on desktop

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

System specifications would help, especially what type of mouse you've got, but at a guess I'd say there's something not right with your mouse settings.

I'm trying to figure out what kind of video card I need that would meet these needs:AGP 4x/8x slotsupports dx 9 DVI output capable of 1680x1050 resolutionsuitable for watching movies and tv (I'm not a gamer)$25 or less.I've been looking on Ebay and there's lots out there, but there seems to be a lot of opinions on which cards support the 1680x1050 resolution in digital and manufacturers are not very clear on that one.    Is it reasonable to assume any card from 2006 on will support my monitor's native res with new drivers?Most manufacturer's are clear on the dx9 question though I'm unclear on the differences between "supports", "capable" and "compliant".Finally, do I need more than a 128MB card if I'm not gaming?Thanks,John

Answer:Choosing an agp video card (was: WD hard drive click, click, etc)

Well, my dad just watches videos on his old dell along with doing some work things on his computer and he is happy with his 128mb nvidia geforce 5200card.supports, capable and compliant -- this is what I think ..., supports and capable means the card can handle said operations or features (even if graphics card manufacturer is not required to include it) , compliant would mean it meets a certain requirement.  This is only what I think, maybe you want to look more into it for specifics.

I have a mouse problem that I have never come across.  When on the desktop or in some applications such as Microsoft Outlook 2003, the left click acts like a right click and the right click is dead.  When in other applications like Internet Explorer it's fine.  In other windows (like pop-ups - task manager) the mouse doesn't work at all.  I have rebooted several times and even switched the mouse to one that I use on another PC that definitely works.  I am running Windows XP Professional.  Any advice?  Does this sound like a setting one of my children might have changed or some sort spyware/virus?  Any help would be very appreciated.

Answer:Mouse - left click acting lick right click

Either of those are possibilities. Can you go to Control Panel/Mouse settings and check there? How about asking kids?

In windows explorer, when you click the left side menu folders, it automatically expands them and shows the subdirectories on the left side...in 2k, you click the folder and it lists content on the right, you double click the folder to expand its subfolers on the left. I really don't like the auto expand feature of xp, but I can't find a way to turn it off. I tried messing with the 'single click to expand folder contents' option in 'folder options' however that only affected the right side of the explorer window, not the left. Is there any way to turn this 'feature' off?

Hello, I actually have in forder options "Single-click to open an item (point to select).
I really like it because I can open folders with just one click but I don't like (point to select). I like one click to select a file and double clik for open it.
?There is any way that enables one click for opening folders and one click to select files / two for run files?
There is any option at least for disabling the (point to select) option?.
Thanks in advance!

Answer:Disable auto-click but enable just one click for folder

Welcome!

Not sure what you're asking. How would you select a folder, if clicking on it opened it, and pointing at it did nothing?

When I right-click using the touchpad on my T440s, it registers as a left-click. I have reset all my Synaptics settings to their default values. I have rolled back my Synaptics Pointing Device driver to the previous version, which is now 19.0.17.2. I have rebooted. The right-click still registers as a left-click. Left-click also registers as a left-click, and I confirmed that I do not have the "Switch primary and secondary buttons" option selected. I'm stumped as to what I can do next. Note: This has nothing to do with a two-finger tap. That doesn't work either, but I'm talking about a physical depression of the widely and appropriately maligned disaster of a touchpad that came with this laptop (and has since been dropped from new Lenovo devices, thank goodness). I've also fiddled with the Synaptics settings for "Enable top button" and "Enable bottom button", and that doesn't help. As a workaround, I have used AutoHotKey to map my Right-Alt button to emulate a right-click. This works, but is rather clumsy compared to an actual right-click. (Info on how to do that, in case you're curious: http://superuser.com/a/195168) This problem started while I was using a standalone ThinkPad keyboard, plugged into the laptop's USB port. When I'm working for a long time, I like to put my laptop up on a stand, so the screen is directly in front of my face; this avoids the neck strain of bending forward to look at the laptop screen. I have a standalone ThinkPad keyboard that si... Read more
