I have a fresh installation of Bionic Beaver and I have noticed that double-clicking (with mouse or touch-pad buttons) does not open files or folders. Single click doe select them, but the second click would seem to have no effect. If I click on a file or folders and then hit Enter, they do open as expected. Any idea? Thanks

  • Hmmmm - unable to duplicate the problem. On my freshly-installed Ubuntu 18.04 test system, double-clicking seems to work properly. – user535733 May 29 at 16:31

    Try this: Open Settings-> Universal Access. Then scroll down, you will see 'Double click delay', try to edit it and check if it works for you. – singrium May 29 at 16:40
  • I have to adjust that on every PC I touch, Linux/Windows/Otherguys. singrium is right. – K7AAY May 29 at 17:21
