Preference wording is VERY misleading

I came here to report an issue with a particular setting in Preferences, specifically the one called "Double-click when clicking icon". I thought it was working just opposite from what it states.

Before posting this issue, I found one that dealt with that subject already (I only created a new issue because that one was closed)... https://support.cocoatech.com/discussions/problems/12657-double-cli...

It seems other users are just as confused by the wording as I am. When I read "Double-click when clicking icon" I understood it to mean I wanted to use a double-click to open files/folders instead of a single-click.

Since it seems using double-click to open is the default, and checking that option changes it to single-click, it would be more clear to have it say: "Use single-click to open files/folders"
