    Hello Frocli, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Double check using the tutorial below to make sure that you have "Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse" unchecked in Ease of Access Center.

    Thank you but not this is the case.
    No unfortunately I DID it before and it is not checked.
    Of course I tried it first.

    I even tried with several different mouse.
    No ideas now, and it is impossible to use the laptop.

    Just to see if this may help, set your Folder Options to Double-click to open an Item.

    Ok, I changd to single, and then changed to double.
    No difference.

    May I try something in the regedit?

    You could also try OPTION 2 and/or OPTION 3 in the tutorial below to see if it may stop this.

    Just being sure. Your specs show a Lenovo ThinkPad E530. Are you talking about a mouse or a touchpad/trackpad? If touchpad, then you might need to deselect tap to click--in the touchpad/trackpad section of Control Panel > Mouse.

    Thanks, but no, I use (or more exactly want to use) a mouse. I even tried the touchpad but the problem is the same.
