Mouse Clicks Twice

Dear Computer Lady,

When I click on say my mozilla firefox unless I remove the cursor immediately I get multiple windows of my Google home page.

The same happens when you click on the back arrow if you leave it on it will go back multiple times

Hoping you can help, Alan

Dear Alan,

I am going to take a guess here and say that the mouse sensitivity is set way too high.

You can adjust your mouse settings in the control panel.

Just Click on “Start” and then “Control Panel”.

Your mouse settings will be located in the hardware section of the control panel, in a section named, “Mouse”.

In the Mouse properties dialog box, look for settings to change the speed of the pointer, and settings for the double click speed.

Adjust these settings to see if you can fix the problem.

If this doesn’t work, you might have to try a new mouse.
