Normally, for all popular computer operating systems such as Windows, Ubuntu, macOS.. then when you want to open a file, an application, or access any folder, you will have to double-click, aka double-click on its icon.
But for some reason, you want to be able to open the file, folder or application with just one click, what to do? Just like on a touch screen, tap it once and it will open.
Yes, if you like, that’s okay, because Windows allows us to easily set up to open files with 1 click (one-click).
Actually, this feature is not new, it has been around since Windows 7 operating system, it is quite a long time but it is not used much. It may be because users do not know or they feel inconvenient to use.
I think that’s right, because although one-click is quite convenient, it can also cause the wrong file, application, etc. So I also encourage you to set it up only when you feel it. just necessary.
