    sometimes when i place the mouse pointer over a file, the file deatails are shown in a lillte box, sometimes not.


    somtimes when i double-click a file to open it, it tries to rename it. most of the time, it opens the file. i have noticed that this only happens when i click the file name, but double-clciking the file name also opens the file.


    i'm sure there are more that i can't figure out, but i can't think of them right now.

    You're not double-clicking fast enough. You can lower the double-click speed in your Mouse Settings which is located in the Control Panel. Or you can learn how to click faster. :)

    It only works when the window you are using is active.

    I'd post a link, but thestar.com doesn't seem to host the article. Conspiracy? Hmm...
