#190 Doubleclicking the CSMenu orb closes the Start Menu


When you double click the orb with the default W7 start menu, the start menu stays open.
When you double click the orb with Classic Shell enabled/active, the start menu opens, then closes again.

Please fix this, or add an option to control this behavior.

(I always open the start menu by single-clicking, I only stumbled on this bug because i accidentally double clicked :P )

    I don't understand the problem - a double-click is simply two clicks. The first one opens the menu and the second closes it.

    Needs a little bit more delay, it's bad when you're handicap, windows have accidental double click detection, but CS doesn't.

    Well, there is no reason to double-click the start button, so don't do it :)

    Some UI elements do different things for single and double click. The start button has only one job - to open the menu. So it doesn't make a distinction between the two.

    I prefer it over the old button where depending on how fast you click the menu may hide or stay up.

    i think you don't understand what i mean, original ms start menu have that behaviour (accidental double click detection) to help handicapped people, on Classic shell does not work

      The original start button doesn't have "accidental double-click detection". It simply ignores double-clicks.

    I don't understand how anyone can accidentally double click. Yes, accidental single click is possible, but accidental double click? And that is why we have the double click timer setting in the Mouse control panel. Adjust its value, then it won't be counted as a double-click. That in fact, the Classic Start Menu is so responsive to single clicks and opens and closes so fast is a feature in fact.
