I just got CC a couple days ago. I just started using Bridge today and noticed that I have to single click to select and double click to open. I want to know if there is a way to make it so I can single click to open. I hate double click.

Thanks

You can right-click and then choose 'Open', but I would rather double click.

In Windows File Explorer you can control the click / double click behaviour. This might be a work around.

To get to this option ...
Click on the Start Icon and type in File Explorer Options .....

I cannot say if changing this option will have any impact on Bridge behaviour.

I would expect not. Bridge is not File Explorer.

I agree .... but there is a remote possibility that Bridge may pick up on o/s default behaviour, but would not be optimistic.

For what goproguy may be looking for .... using single click on an Explorer window may be a workaround.

It's up to him, but that hardly sounds as a viable workaround to me. Bridge has many more options than Explorer, so I assume he's not using Bridge for no reason. I think he has just to learn to live with double click (or right-click).

I thought as much. I have file explorer set up that way now. BTW, it doesn't change bridge settings. I am in a class and have to use bridge, besides, file explorer is junk.

Since the OP is using windows, this should be a solution..

Download and install X-Mouse Button Control (it's free), here.

In the options, you'll be able to change the left mouse button to act as a double-click for the Bridge window/program.
