How to Enable Single Click to Open an Item in Windows 8

Introduction

 
In this article, I am going to explain how to enable single-click to open an item in Windows 8. When we want to open any file or folder we use double-click but in Windows 8 we can open any file or folder using singe-click. This feature is useful when we have lots of files and folders to open.
 
Most users think this is a property of the mouse and they try to find it in the mouse properties but they do not find it. To enable this feature we have to go into the folders options. You will find this property in the folder options. This feature is very helpful for the user and it increases work performance. This feature is very useful for a user working in the testing department. In the testing department, there are many files, links and folders to check that every folder has valid data or not and the contents in files are right or wrong.
