slow double-click to rename

I think it is a bug. Renaming a file by slow double-clicking the filename does not work smoothly at all and it takes several attempts to get it to work. Also, in Windows if you single-click a filename that is already selected it counts as slow double-click. In fact, I think this the actual convention behind slow double-clicking (the first click simply selects the file).

Confirmed on Windows 10 Enterprise x64 18362.239

At first I though it was because of this other problem of mine and that it would be against my last thoughts about it: viewtopic.php?p=30182#p30182 [i.e. that the slovenliness of FC it is the fault of Windows]

But then I thought that maybe my mouse settings in the OS somehow got changed on themselves, as I did not recall the problem with clicking files to rename them in previous days. And so I went to

Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Mouse > Buttons > Double click-speed

changed the click speed to both maximum Fast and minimum Slow. As a result I only got a barely noticeable improvement with the Fast. But then I switched to Windows Explorer- it had no such delay [and now the clicking time in it was insane]

And then I remembered that it was only few days ago that I went from FreeCommander version XE 770 32-bit to XE 790a 32-bit. So I reversed the mouse settings to previous ones [around in the middle between Fast and Slow] and installed on top of 790 the 770a. And bingo- the clicking FC was working again fast. So I went back to 790- and the problem was there again. Now I am running again on 770 without the issue of speed [in regards to left-clicking renaming files and folders that is], becasue it is imossible for me to work wih that delay, as it is even incosistnet [and so I do not know how long do I have to wait and / or how may clicks will I have to perform in the end]

In my 790a the problem manifests itself like these: I have to left click a file and then wait before I can left click it again, so that I can rename it. Sometimes a second is enough, sometimes two seconds. And sometimes I can click for the second time almost right away; but more often even if I wait as long as 3 seconds my second click is totally ignored- and so I have the click for the third time. And during such testings I even once got into situation where I could not go into renaming mode with additional left click at all, even after selecting other files and waiting for like 10 seconds [and I had to resort to closing and reopening of FC]

Unfortunately this problem persists in Build 804 32-bit public beta of FC [on Windows 10 Enterprise x64 18362.356]

And on top of that I have just noticed that this issue manifests itself in another way. When I try to copy a Tab from one Panel to another [by simply left clicking it and then while holding the click moving the moue pointer] then I also need to wait- after clicking on the Tab I need to see first the hours glass [which happens after ~2 second] before moving the mouse pointer, in order to be able to successively copy that Tab and not just move [an "empty"] pointer

It seems that from now on I just have to remember to double-click in FC with a forced pause in-between; and hope, that somewhere in the future a fresh FC install on fresh Windows on a new hardware will make this issue go away
