How can I change from single-click to double-click?

In my email Inbox, how can I change from single-click opens the email to double-click?  I want to be able to select, not open.

I you want to select a message, just use the little checkbox on the left. You will select the message without opening it!

As often happens, that answer largely misses the point of the question.

She/he is not just asking how to select, but about how to OPEN. I'm having the same issue. How come opening is single-click now, when it always was double-click? And everything else in my Windows is set to open with two clicks?

Re: How can I change from single-click to double-click?

I'm sorry you feel I did not answer the question appropriately. The question specifically stated that they wanted to Select, not Open the email, and that is why I answered it the way I did.

 

To address your concern, the older system was designed to emulate a thick client experience and mirrored that experience with double clicks. Web design has evolved since and common best practices have changed and our design schemes have updated accordingly.

 

Single clicking previews the message in Horizontal and Vertical views, and double clicking opens them fully. List view single click has the same action of previewing the message. A fast enough double click will actually fully open the message, just as it will do in the other views.

 

I hope this addresses your particular question.
