Enable Single Click Feature In Windows 10

A key feature in the Windows family is to open a file or folder using a single click or touch. We can also use this feature in Windows 10 to open a file or folder using a single click or touch, this is a very convenient feature for professional users.

Why should we open a file or folder by clicking double click, when there is a wonderful feature in Windows Family? Windows Family gives us a double click option by default, which is very irritating for professionals/users, but we can change it into a single click way.
