If I'm understading you correctly, you can change how items are opened (Single click vs Double click).

Go to Places > Home Folder (or any nautilus window) > Click Edit > Choose Preferences > Select the Behavior Tab > Under Behavior, choose Single click to open items.

Impossible to say whether you're looking in the wrong place as you don't say.

Open Nautilus - Preferences - Behaviour, you can change mouse behaviour there to open with single click.
