Double-click may refer to any of the following:
1. Double-click is a term used to describe the process of quickly pressing a mouse button twice while keeping it still. In most cases, a double-click is with the left mouse button and is used to open or execute a file, folder, or software program.
If you are working with text, double-clicking a word selects that word. Triple-clicking selects the sentence.

Why does double-clicking moving text or icons?
If, while double-clicking, the button is held down for too long and moved, the mouse may move text, icons, or other objects. Often this happens because the user is not double-clicking fast enough. If this happens a lot, we suggest slowing down the double-clicking speed.
