A user's system setting on the mouse click behavour of launching of an
application has nothing to do with the selection of an entry to be opened in
the start center.

With the application pane and recent files being single-click execution,
changing templates to this behaviour is the better choice.

If it were possible to multiselect entries, single-click selection might be
useful, but doubt multiselect would be useful for templates. With single-click
activation, it is still possible to have right-click interactions if required.
