Double Click Test – Test Your Mouse For Double Click

You may sometimes experience that your mouse does double-click despite you click it only once.

Don’t worry!

There is a way to check the double-clicking problem of your mouse. It’s a double click test; what it does is that it will capture and log the different events performed from the mouse click.

How does Double Click Test work?

As you see above, there are three boxes titled Left, Middle, and Right. Each of them respectively logs the different mouse click.

When the user does the right-click, it will log into the right-side box. Similarly, it applies to the middle and the left boxes.

At any given point, if the double-clicking test tool detects the double-click, it will automatically change the status of that side box and log for the double click count.

Let’s take an example. If, at any given point of time during the test, someone does a left click on his mouse, and the corresponding output is a double-click error. You will see a result just like the image below provided for your reference.

Why my mouse is double-clicking – The Reason behind?

There are four main possibilities of why your mouse does a double click. Let’s go through them one by one.

1) Double-click speed set too low – There is an option in the main settings where you specify the double-click speed setting of your mouse. When set very low, then clicking just one time may be counted as a double-click.

2) Dirty Mouse Problem – Over time, the accumulation of dust and dirt particles inside the mouse button results in a double-click despite you click the mouse button only once.

3) Wireless signal interference may be the reason – If you are using a wireless mouse, then there are chances that the wireless mouse signals are interfering with the wireless receiver.

4) Defective Mouse – Another reason that your mouse incorrectly recognizes a single click as a double click is because it may malfunction, or it has a defective circuit board. In this case, we advise you to check your mouse for other things such as Mouse accuracy, check all the buttons, check the sensor light, etc.

How to fix double-clicking mouse?

Well, this may be a tricky question because it depends upon what precisely is the issue with your mouse, and it can only be said once a professional guy checks it thoroughly.

But here are a few things you can try on your own and see if it works for you or not.

First and foremost, check for the double-click speed settings. I have already talked about it above. Secondly, you can try repairing your mouse on your own (I am leaving here a valuable resource from Instructables.com on how to fix a mouse for double-click problem)

Lastly, If nothing works, you can get it checked by a professional hardware guy and decide whether to buy a new one or the old one can be still repaired.
