How do I change settings for Chrome and Windwows 10 to double-click for closing/opening browser tabs and program icons?

Normally, I have a lot of browser tabs (up to around 200) opened in Google Chrome, and it happens quite often that I accidentially click the small x icon for a tab so it closes and I need to re-open it again. The worst is if I by accident click on the X furthest up to the right so all 200 browser tabs get closed.

The same applies to the program icons I've pinned in my activity field furthest down on the screen, but the opposite way: it's easy to accidentially single-click the wrong icon as I've filled the activity field with program icons and they are each close to each other.

The best way to avoid this would be if I can change settings so I need to double-click to close/open browser tabs and programs from the activity field icons. Is that possible?
