Fixes for ‘mouse keeps double-clicking’:

Note: Whichever brand of mouse you’re using, you can try these two fixes to fix your mouse if it keeps  double-clicking.

  1. Adjust double-click speed of your mouse 
  2. Re-install your mouse driver 
Performing these methods requires a working mouse. If your mouse click doesn’t work as expected, try touch screen or another mouse.

Fix 1: Adjust double-click speed of your mouse

If the double-click speed of your mouse is set either too low or too high, it would cause the mouse not function properly. 

To adjust double-click speed of your mouse, following these:

  1. Type control in the search box from the Start menu. Then click Control Panel from the top.
  2. Choose to view by Large icons. Then find and click Mouse.
  3. On the Buttons tab, move the slider of Speed to a proper place. Click Apply > OK.

Check if single-click could work properly. If not, adjust the double-click speed to a different place. If the error persists, try next method.

Fix 2: Reinstall your mouse driver 

Mouse keeps right clicking problem also could be due to your outdated or corrupted mouse driver. If adjusting double-click speed didn’t help you fix the error, please follow the guide here to reinstall your mouse driver to solve it.

Since it’s difficult to find and download the latest correct driver after uninstalling the mouse driver, we recommend download the latest correct driver before uninstalling.

Part 1: Search the latest driver from the manufacturer

Head to the manufacturer website, search the driver for your mouse, and download the latest version of your mouse driver. Since the mice vary from brand to brand, so we won’t cover it here.

After downloading, you can compare the downloaded driver with the one already existed in your computer. If the downloaded driver is the latest version, you should uninstall your mouse driver and install the latest version.

Part 2. Uninstall your mouse driver through Device Manager

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key + R key together to invoke the Run box.
  2. Enter devmgmt.msc in the box and click OK.
  3. Double-click Mice and other pointing devices. Then right-click on your mouse driver to select Uninstall device.
  4. Click Uninstall to confirm to uninstall your mouse.

Part 3. Install the latest mouse driver 

After uninstalling your mouse driver, unplug and re-plug your mouse. Then head to Device Manager > Mice and other pointing devices > your mouse > Update driver, and choose your downloaded driver to install.
