In fact, there is another method to turn it on, which, as the article title implies, is opening it by single click. Meanwhile, the process to make the method come true will be illustrated step by step in the following.

Steps to realize opening an item with single click in Windows 8:

Step 1: Access Folder Options.

Open Search panel with Windows+F hotkeys, input folder options in the empty box, choose Settings, and then click Folder Options in the searching results to access it.

Tips: More ways to open Folder Options are introduced in How to Get to Folder Options in Windows 8/8.1.

Step 2: Modify related setting in Folder Options.
