You can double-click on an item to open it by default in Windows.

The mouse double-click speed is how quickly you must click the mouse button to perform a double-click.

Some people double-click slower or faster than others, and each mouse may not always reactive the same.

If you find the mouse double-click speed too sensitive (fast) or not sensitive enough (slow), you can adjust the mouse double-click speed to what works best for you.

This tutorial will show you how to change the mouse double-click speed for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.
