    Ive noticed lately that placing my cursor on a file, and dbl clicking on the left does NOT open the file. I haven't changed anything on my mouse configuration, any suggestions as to why it doesn't work anymore?

    What specific Mac with what exact Mac OS X version and with what mouse do you use?

    Can you double click anywhere else to open a window or file on the Desktop?


    Even though some might get annoyed of reading this, the thread title guy strikes again:

    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses.
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.

    Have you also taken a look at http://mroogle.*************/MRoogleSmall.gif, since that question may have been asked several times?



    Example: External mouse (model) can't open files via double click.

    Other than the left dbl click not working, the mouse is working perfectly.

    Try repairing permissions with Disk Utility and resetting PRAM and SMC

    Just cause I feel like contributing nothing...

    I don't think resetting PRAM/SMC is going to do anything :p

    [EDIT] OK, a slight contribution: are you sure left-clicking properly works? Tried the same mouse on a different system?
