    Default Link select?

    So I got a new laptop, it works great and all, but I want to make it so that whenever I click on a desktop icon or file or anything, the cursor turns from normal select to "link select" (like when you click on a hyperlink). I have this on my old computer and laptop and remember setting it to be like that in the past, but obviously forgot now.
    Uh...this is probably confusing, but could anybody help with this?
    I know I don't have to download anything, you do it through Control Panel, I think.

    I assume you're running Windows....

    Control Panel -> Folder Options
    General -> Single-click to open an item
    OK

    I'm looking at Windows Vista right now, but if I recall correctly it's the same in XP. Personally this setting would drive me batty--I'd be opening things accidentally all the time. But it does make some sense I guess. Enjoy.

    Some people have dainty fingers and like single click.

    Personally I set it to double click with a pretty damn fast click rate to activate.

    I love you. With all the love I can muster without being homo.
    Thanks
