✔ Best Answer
To create a shortcut to your documents folder, right click it and use "Create Shortcut". Cut and paste this onto the desktop.

For single click:
Use "Windows + X keys" to get to Control Panel > Folder Options > General tab.
The setting should be there.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
