Sounds like a job for AutoHotkey. :) Here is a script for Window Shading, rolling a window up to its title bar.

Nevermind, found the answer: MButton::Click 2

What you are looking for is a software debouncer. There are two AutoHotkey solutions for Windows in this thread. The first is a short script from a user named HotKeyIt: LButton:: If (A_TimeSincePriorHotkey < 150) ;hyperclick Return Click Down KeyWait, LButton Click Up Return And then there's a longer solution: Buggy-Mouse....

If you double click on (or really near) the border of the cell, the selected cell jumps to the first empty cell to the left in the same row (if it was a side border) or up in the same column (if it was a top/bottom border). It seems to be more reliable if your cursor is closer to a corner rather than in the middle of a border.

It varies somewhat based on context and operating system, and the behavior can be redefined through settings or expanded by applications or utility software. As general rules for default operation: Things that are, or act like, hyperlinks, or controls, like buttons, operate with a single click. For objects, like files, one click selects the object. ...

AutoHotKey could do this. MButton::Send {LButton 2}

As far as I am aware, this is the default behaviour. What I often do is to double-click the word and then hold shift and press the left arrow key (application allowing). I have found this to be the quickest method rather than attempting to precisely select the word under scrutiny with the mouse which is often a little tricky and fiddly.

Double Click works on my bluetooth mouse and Windows 7 x64. The Double Click application was designed to be a small program that will turn your middle mouse button into a double click function. It's much smaller than other 3rd party mouse enhancers, as it only does one thing. This will definitely save you getting RSI.

Look like damage in button microswitch (I dont know english term for that. "rattle" or i miss?) Some peoples can dizassemble microsvitch and fix it. Or it can be replaced (soldering) from different mouse.

~LButton:: If (A_PriorHotKey = A_ThisHotKey and A_TimeSincePriorHotkey < 500) { WinMinimize A ; minimize windows } Return Try this Autohotkey script :)

This will specify which button you want to press: +LButton:: send {LButton 2} Return LButton is left click MButton is middle click RButton is right click

First: your title says Windows 7 and in your post you mention windows 8 and windows XP. That's three different versions of Windows. On top of that, there's also Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, but I assume that you use Windows 8.1 (and not 8). Couple of things: All three versions allow you to run almost every program as administrator by right-clicking the link....

I'm not aware of any registry edit that would enable such functionality (probably because not many people would be interested in something like this), but it's a cinch if you use 7+ Taskbar Tweaker as an installed or portable app:

Yes, it is really an issue. I started noticing it a couple of weeks ago. I have tried multiple things to solve it, but when I plug my wireless USB mouse into my personal laptop it works fine. I turned off power save on the USB ports, I turned off the trackpad. I unplugged and replugged the USB reciever and rebooted. I installed the proper driver for my mouse ...

I have been a technology trainer for nearly 20 years, this is a common question and a distinction that is not often clear. After conversations with many gurus, I have learned the following: 1-The one hard and fast rule when you NEED a double-click is for a desk top icon 2-For everything else click ONE TIME and if you do not see evidence of a response after ...

For linux solution: http://blog.guntram.de/?p=16 It may work in every distro if you recompile evdev and apply the patch.

Yes, Microsoft introduced this foolish behaviour after XP, and they have naturally neither listened to the complaints nor corrected the mistake. Here is a little helper, although it is necessary to involve the keyboard: Doubleclick somewhere on the start of the text so the first part gets highlighted. Then press (and hold) shift while clicking on the end ...

You can write wrapper scripts like this: filename: foobar #! /usr/bin/env python import foobar foobar.main() filename: foobar.py #! /usr/bin/env python ....

As you're using file associations to edit them I suggest when you've finished them you rename them to something else (eg. blah.pyx) and then associate .pyx with execute. Make sure you have this at the top of each ofc: #!/usr/bin/env python

It could be the default Double Click Speed. Go to Control Panel - Mouse - Buttons tab and play around with the Double Click Speed. This could also be a hardware issue so the above may not work. You could also try re-installing the drivers for the mouse you are using.

Here's a solution that works on Excel 2010 Double quote delimit fields that don't have leading zeros. This will allow you to use double quotes on fields that contain commas. For fields that have leading zeros, use =" for the beginning field delimiter and " for the end field delimiter. This will keep the leading zeros for that field. It is not necessary ...

You miss the point about double quoting, to include double quote in field you should double it: "=""634576345" => ="634576345 To keep leading zeroes you should present your numbers to Excel like strings so they should not be converted to numbers at all. I have no Excel installed anywhere right now but here are possible solutions that come in mind: ...

I double click on the word, but hold the second click and drag it slightly. For some reason selecting multiple whole words (double-click and drag) doesn't select the whitespace afterwards, so you can double-click and drag just the one word.

I had the same problem and finally solved it, download the jdk1.5 upgrade 3. I had the exact same problem, even after reinstall, I was getting the main class not found error. After installing jdk1.5 upgrade 3. Problem solved!

Double clicks are fine. What you really want to get rid of is "slow clicks". In the Finder, clicking on an icon or its label selects it. Pause, and then click again on the label to rename. But if you don't pause for long enough, you end up opening the file—particularly annoying when it's a .psd or .xcodeproj
