Double clicking to open forms, tables does not open them

Last Modified: 2013-11-28
I'm running Access 2010, and have pulled up our existing Access 2002 db. In the navigation pane, when I double click on a form or query or table to open, it does not open. I'm pretty sure it did open before. This is a brand new computer for me, and I'm having no luck. I have another computer with the same configuration (Windows 7, Access 2010), and it works fine.

If I right click on the form/table/query then choose Open, it opens fine.

 Help please!
