    @vasa -- The link you provided answered my need to switch to single-click. Thanks to the nth!

    I tried autokey-gtk. It's in the ballpark but too a bit too convoluted for my purposes.

    I installed & set up Thunderbird email client. I have 16 email accounts so T-bird is a bit of a PITN compared with Pop Peeper -- the email app I use on Windows.

    bellgamin,

    To install IFL in Mint, here are some brief instructions to make it easy...

    Download and extract ifl_en_gui_x64.zip in your Linux OS. Have your IFL and BootIt registration info handy.

    Open readme.txt. Section 2 tells you how to install IFL. From "Working with the IFL Boot Disk from a Linux distribution" till "change settings, or enter/correct the product key." You don't need the custom steps at this stage.

    With a 64-bit Linux OS you have to install 32-bit shared libraries...

    Finally, join the disk group so IFL can see the disks...

    sudo adduser loginname disk

    Restart computer

    It should work now.
