I used to

Icons and get them to open or run automatically.
I can't do that anymore, and have to click once and then on the drop-down menu,
click "Open", to actually open the folder. However, that means that when I open

right-click? The drop-down menu should only appear if you

My suspicion, based on your description, is that your mouse buttons have been
reversed. For example, if you are right-handed and the mouse's configuration
was set to the default settings, then I believe that something has caused your
mouse to switch to a left-handed person's configuration.
Click on the
Start button and select the "Control Panel" option. Open up the
"Mouse" control panel and search through the various tabs for an option that is
labeled something like "Swap left and right mouse buttons". The option is going
to be different depending on the type of mouse driver software that is
installed, but it should be there somewhere. Once you have found it, change it
as needed (i.e. if it is checked, then uncheck it and vice-versa). Click the
Apply button followed by the OK button.
Let me know if you need anything else.
