Thread: Gnome Single Click Program Execution on Desktop

  1. #1

    Default Gnome Single Click Program Execution on Desktop

    I have been using Gnome a lot more lately and I like it for the most part.

    However I got used to single clicking on Desktop icons using KDE and it just seems silly to have to click twice on everything. It reminds me too much of that *other* operating system.

    Is there an easy way to get rid of double clicking in Gnome? I looked around for about 15 minutes, but saw no terribly obvious way of doing this. Is it even possible? Thanks in advance.

    Hi
    Control Center -> File Management->Behavior tab and select "Single
    click to open items".

    Hey thanks Malcolm! It worked!

    I never would have guessed to look under "File Management". Thanks again.
