I work as a volunteer instructor in a group providing computer practice and training, mainly to the elderly, in the use of their own devices, and this one has me puzzled. The computer is a Packard Bell EasyNote TE 69KB running Win 8 - not a touch screen - and its owner has nerve damage in his right arm that reduces both the sensitivity and flexibility in the fingers of his right hand. He was having problems with double clicking and I said 'Easy, we'll cut the speed down.'
I am not overly familiar with Win 8, I don't have a computer of my own running on it, but anyway. Top right corner, Charms, the cog wheel, control panel, mouse / trackpad. I found a couple of controls for the mouse but not for double click.
Can anyone point me in the right direction please. If Win 8 doesn't have a double click speed control it will be the first version of Windows I have run into since 3.x that doesn't !
