I agree with confused. Something is definately weird with the desktop icons.
If I have been working with a window, and then try to activate any icon on the desktop with a double-click,
-nothing happens. Wait......nothing happens.....wait more....nothing happens.
It seems that I have to click on the icon once to select it (has the box around it), then I can double-click
and I get and immediate response. This can be quite frustrating.
Same issue here - icons work for a while but at some point NONE of my desktop icons work by a mouse double-click. The only way I can open an app linked by a desktop icon is to right-click and choose OPEN.
For reference I'm using a ThinkPad W500 that was upgraded from Vista Ultimate. Same issue with built-in touch-pad and an external mouse.
