Mouse Hover opens web links in Edge instead of hovering RRS feed

  • Question

  • There is a closed link here that describes the problem up to a point:

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-hardware/hovering-cursor/79ef97f6-fb6e-45e0-a842-cb5cef9998d9

    The problem is that the Dell Optical Mouse (my case) with the latest driver, and with the options set for double click and not single click ("Double-click to open an item (single-click to select") does not work as expected.   All too frequently, while hovering, the link simply opens.   

    • I am using a mouse pad (it is a clean mouse pad)
    • I have a similar issue with a Windows Optical mouse
    • Behavior reminds me of what would occur on a tablet - with the one exception being this is a mouse and my computer is not a tablet (in one case a ZBook 15 (built 2014), the other case a ZBook 15 (built 2018)
    • Similar behavior occurs on other laptops...  I haven't seen it happen on a desktop yet.

    Since the link above (which is closed) does not fix the problem, is there a workaround?
