    Sorry if posted, didn't find it, but since everyone helped me so well on last pen issue posting for this one. After I fixed pen issue yesterday, my pen double clicks on everything and won't let me open most menus or apps. It makes it super hard for me to type when in bed or any position other than sitting in my chair, being handicapped. Anything onscreen, I need my pen for, choosing apps, browsing, typing onscreen, etc..
    I can't use my fingers like most people after a bad wreck, my thumbs too big n clumsy, with keyboard out I can type. Anyone with an idea how to get my pen from double clicking everywhere, be most appreciated.
    Thank you in advance.

    Sorry about your disability. You sound like a determined and brave soul.

    In trying to solve your pen issues previously, you may have made an unintended change. Let's fix that:

    1 Cortana Search for Control Panel
    2 In upper right corner of Control Panel search for Pen
    3 Choose "Change tablet pen settings"
    4 Set your pen to work similar to a mouse, as shown below.

    Let us know of your progress.

    I tried everything you suggested, all the settings were as they were supposed to be, thank you for helping. Still double clicking, so hopefully have another idea.

    Now let's check the "Surface" app.
    Of course, this refers to the Eraser button, but make a change to this menu, then change it back. This may properly reset your pen functionality.

    Was hoping someone would have another answer by now, I tried everything above and thought I had replied to it already. Can see now that I might not have, my bad. If anyone can possibly thing of another reason, please let me know.

    What happens when you press the pen right-click "side" button?
    It should work like a mouse right click. Is it working as expected?
