I have a new 2008 R2 terminal server that we recently deployed. Somehow "one click" was turned on for the users and I don't want that. I can't see if any of my group policy settings that would cause that. The users click everything twice and it gets really frustrating to deal with problems of opening things too many times. Can someone please advise me on how to disable the one click setting on our 2008 R2 terminal server?

Thank you

Not sure if this is what you want, but I've found where 'tools' has been moved to.

Open an explorer window, from the menu bar Organise, then Folder and Search Options and on the general tab there is the option for double or single click to open files.
I don't know about group policy setings, this is just on a single machine running 2008R2.

I actually found it last night and tested it. It was kind of hard to search for the terms "one click" but finally I found something that worked. Disabling "Classic Shell" in group policy fixed the issue. Found that answer on the following link from this website:

That sounds similar to this that I found, but it seemed more of a question than an answer so I left it:

Glad you got it working.
