    My type cover for the SP3 appears to have a problem. Everything works fine except I seem to have to left-click twice for anything to happen. Eg clicking on a browser link, it won't open unless I click twice. I hear the physical click sound but nothing happens until I click again. I'm not sure if I've got a fault with the switch on the type cover or whether I've accidentally changed a setting somewhere as it seems strange that it works on the second click and this seems quite consistent! It's a bit annoying, though as I use the touchscreen most of the time I don't find it too bad! Do I need to send it back to Microsoft?

    sounds like you got it set to double click in the mouse settings..

    LOL after chatting to MS support who said they didn't think there was any software setting that would do this, I reinstalled the keyboard driver... no difference.

    Then I checked the mouse and keyboard settings...

    ....Double tap and drag was switched on.... switched that off and it's OK now!! PHEW
