Re: VPN

Have used expressvpn myself on linux mint, android box and windows, fast speeds, easy to install and if there is a breech in security the line is automatically cut.
Used for past year without issue.
Not cheap but what is your security worth.

single mouse click

How do I alter the mouse from a double to single click in linux mint 18.2 ?

I have tried right clicking on the desktop and found the mouse icon which allows adjustment, sensitivity and switching the buttons but cannot see anything obvious regarding changing to a single click.

Please advise.

So not a major problem more of a nuisance than anything...
