SOURCE: Can't click and drag

I suspect you have a wireless mouse. When the batteries get low in an Apple wireless mouse, one of the prime symptoms is that click works but drag doesn't, or vice versa. Replace your batteries.

I have a manhattan wireless mouse, model number 176811. the pointer works fine but when i double left click to open anything nothing happens, i have to hit the button 3 or sometimes 4 times to open file??


You may not be double clicking fast enough. In the Windows System Control Panel, there is a Mouse Settings control panel. You can adjust the double click rate in the Mouse Settings control panel.

Cannot use the double click feature on my mouse


To modify the mouse settings, open the property sheet using Start > Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > Mouse and select the Buttons tab as shown below. Check boxes and sliders allow the necessary modifications to be performed.
There is even a Click Lock function that is very handy for those that have trouble holding down the mouse button while using the drag and drop function.
The button configuration and Double-click speed settings must be set properly. Then it can solve your double-click problem.

I bought an imac g 3350 . never had a mac before


Download your program. Make sure it is for YOUR OS. A .dmg should appear on your desktop when it is finished. Double click that. It should open a file with an application icon and a drive icon on the desktop. Open your applications folder from your hard drive, then drag the application icon to that. Eject the drive icon from the desktop by dragging it to the trash.

I have had this mouse for a few months and from day one it has acted erratically. Double clicks when I press the buttons once, has the pointer jump around the screen especially while dragging a file or...


Check for radio interference with phones, microwave oven, etc. (unplug them for the test).
Yoour PC may also have malware, causing the cursor to jump (but that does not usually cause the double-click problem)

Wireless Optic Logitech mouse performace


I had the exact same problem with my original Logitech wireless mouse that came with a wireless keyboard. I eventually figured that the button component inside the mouse wasn't making consistent contact causing unintended double clicking or dropping while dragging. I fixed it by doing some soldering to switch the left mouse button with the right mouse button, since I didn't have to use double clicking or dragging with the right mouse button. It worked pretty well for several months until the switched left button started showing the same problem again. Now my newer Logitech mouse (it's more expensive Nano wireless mouse) is having the same problem after about 1 year using it. I think there's a serious durability problem with the button component that Logitech is putting on their mice. I may do the same trick again on this mouse, but now I don't consider Logitech as a good mouse manufacturer anymore. They used to make good quality hardwares but I guess they aren't that good anymore with all those cheap Chinese suppliers for their parts. :(

Check the CCORNELL posting for the solution. Your mouse is double clicking when it should be only single clicking.
