  • Hi,

    This issue may be also related to the mouse settings. but before that 

    Check that your ALT key is not stuck down. In Windows, holding ALT and double-clicking a drive or folder opens its properties. It happens sometime .

    If this isn't the case try this ...

    Please go to “Control Panel\Hardware and Sound” and click “Mouse” and check your mouse settings; please ensure that the left button is set to “Click” and right button is “Right-click”.


    You may also click the Restore Defaults to reset the mouse settings.


    If you use some other application to manage the mouse, please also check the settings or just remove it.

    Hope this helps!
