Registry Editing Tips

Change Double-Click Sensitivity

If you still insist on having double-click for Windows icons, you will notice that there is a certain amount of movement between the two clicks of a double-click. If you move too much between the two clicks, the rename option will pop out instead. To change the limit, open up the Registry Editor and find HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop. On the right pane, create two new string values name DoubleClickHeight and DoubleClickWidth. Set the value you want as the amount of movement between the two clicks ( in pixels). The normal size of an icon is 32 pixels which should be the maximum value.
