Double click to open files/directories?


I’m loving Atom for my code editing, but there’s one feature/change that I think would perfect it for me. I’m used to double-clicking (or hitting the return key) to open files and double clicking (or pressing the left/right arrows) to expand/close directories in the left pane of editors I’ve used previously (PHPStorm is a good example). Is there a way to alter the functionality so that it doesn’t instantly expand the directory or open the file with a single click?


No, there currently isn’t. There is this open Issue:

But I don’t think that the default tree view is going to change this behavior any time soon.
