    Select Devices
  3. On the next screen, select Mouse in the left column.
  4. Under Related settings in the right column, click Additional mouse options.
  5. In the Mouse Properties window that appears, select the Buttons tab.
  6. In the Double-click speed section adjust the speed slider to set a more comfortable speed.
  7. You can test your setting by double-clicking on the folder icon.
  8. When you are happy with your settings click the X close button in the top-right of the window

Note: If this does not work it could be because your computer settings are managed by someone else (an IT department or administrator for example) in which case you will need to contact them to access these settings or for further help.
