Common Human Interface Guideline
The purpose of this page is to help direct the defaults given for all of the available desktops (un/supported) so that the initial configuration is more intuitive, reasonable, usable, and non-jarring. The intent is not to emulate Mac or Windows, however, some things may be widely accepted enough to consider.
- click to focus/focus follows mouse
- These are the two common options but it is fairly obvious which is selected as default, so either would be ok.
- single/double-click to open/execute
- Both Windows and MacOS have preferred double-click.
