Change the mouse double clicking time.

This option sets the time between consecutive mouse clicks to be registered as a double-click. The time interval between two mouse clicks is measured in milliseconds and can be increased or decreased as per user convenience.

Tweak for : Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista
This tweak sets the time to measure two consecutive mouse clicks as a double-click. The mouse click time interval is always measured in milliseconds. The higher the value, the longer is the time taken to perform a double-click and the lower the value, the shorter is the time taken to perform a double-click.

The default double-click time is 500 milliseconds while the value can range between 200-900 milliseconds for Windows 2000 and advanced users. In Windows 98/ME, the value range has an extended limit of 100-900 milliseconds. However, accessing a file/folder at the lowest value of 100 is almost impossible.

For this, go to Start > Run, enter "regedit" and navigate to the registry keys listed below. Now, simply right-click on the existing string value "DoubleClickSpeed", select Modify and specify the time interval between a double-click operation in milliseconds in the Value Data field, for example, "700".

The changes will take effect after a restart or logoff.
