accidentally closing tabs

Post by franklekens »

I've been using xplorer2 pro with no problems on a desktop computer for years. Now I have a laptop and an annoying thing happens: often when I click on a tab to select it, it is interpreted as the command for closing that tab. Yet I didn't click the little cross at the wright, I just clicked the tab name. Anyone else see that happen and know what can cause it (& how to prevent it)?

Might it have something to do with the doubleclick speed? Is double clicking a tab mapped to the close command (and if so, is it possible to change that in the options somewhere)?

Hm, well... I switched to a different mouse and first impressions are that this seems to help. Maybe it was just a case of a cheapish mouse to eager to interpret single clicks as double clicks somehow (clicking through folders was also somewhat erratic). Over and out.

you can adjust the double click speed from control panel
also use WINDOW > REOPEN TAB menu if you close a tab by accident

Yes, I saw, that reopen is a nice new function.
Closing by double-clicking can't be disabled?

okay, that's fine. It only seemed to happen with that iffy mouse & maybe risky double click settings.
