    Hopefully the video makes it clear what my problem is. Itís driving me nuts. I tried to click and drag something using the built-in mouse on my MacBook, and it almost always double-clicks down when I push it once, and just tries to open the file. I am trying to use an external mouse instead, but I need to get a decent mouse pad because itís hell trying to get it to work on other surfaces when Iím sitting on a couch. But if I could get my grabbing built-in mouse to work the way itís supposed to, maybe I wouldnít need an external mouse at all.

    1st - Press command + option + escape.
    2nd - In the Force Quit Applications list, look for Finder.
    3rd - Click the Relaunch button.
    Now just wait a second and Finder should restart. the drag and drop should be resolved.

    This problem happens every single time I use my computer, so are you sure that simply restarting the Finder will fix the problem? Iíll give it a try anyway. Iíll also look at the trackpad settings, like the article mentions. Thanks for the suggestions.
