  1. Nevermind! I found the run option and followed instructions. Values were already set at 4, so following a comment from another user, I deleted and re-entered the values at 4, and restarted. It worked! All is working again. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you for saying this! I deleted and re-typed my values at 4, restarted, and it worked! I might not have bothered had you not said this. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. If you use the “preview pane” in Windows Explorer (“my computer), it can prevent desktop icons from opening. Happens to me all the time and usually closing the preview pane works, if not, closing Explorer always does. Sheesh. I hate the thought of people messing with their registries unnecessarily, when the fix might be much simpler.

  3. i have too much problem in my pc please help me when i open my computer it show:no such interface supported and controler panel also cant opening and i cant move or copy anything in local disk c to d or D to C..WHAT TO DO PLEASE HELP ME…

    1. Maybe your user profile account got corrupted. Create a new user profile account and check in this new profile all thing is working or not.

      1. Please check your double click speed as well. Let us know if doesn’t work.
        Go to start >>control panel >> mouse, there under “buttons” ‘ s option speed is given do it at meddle it will be worked.

    1. Thanks a lot! YOU REALLY HAVE HELPED ME! As I am not very good at computers, I spent hours and hours trying to ged rid of 22finder malware.At the beginning I was reading your instructions but I there was no way to find that damned programm. Then I downloaded adwre-remova-tool Fixit and It has cleaned my computer so neatly. It works faster and I don’t see that annoying browser hijacker.

    1. Sure we’ll help you. Please explain what happens when you start your computer and go the back screen and what do you see on the back screen like; taskbar, startbar, can you do right click on that screen, please explain everything.

    2. Same with me. None of the fixes mentioned here help. I still need to right click and click on “Open” to open a file. Double click still doesn’t work. I’m running Windows 10.

  4. If the height and width values don’t work reduce the “Double click mouse speed” in control panel and change to medium

  5. I tryed all kinds of fixes and it didnt work until i set my pop up blocker setting to medium instead of high. left click and left double click works perfect.. try it….

    1. Please check your double-click speed, maybe the speed is the cause of the problem. Let us know if doesn’t fix.

      1. Yes, changing the mouse speed to medium worked for me. The width and height settings on the double click where set to 4 to begin with, but double click not working. All good now. Thank you so much, was most annoying.!

        1. go to start>control panel>mouse> there under “buttons” ‘ s option speed is given do it at meddle it worked for me
